Spiderman - Kingpin

The Kingpin is a Marvel Comics villain who has battled many Marvel crime-fighters, most often The Punisher, Spider-Man, and Daredevil. He first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #50

A titanic figure with an ever-present cigar and diamond-studded cane, the Kingpin is the cold-blooded leader of the New York mafia, although his army of lawyers maintain his image as a legitimate businessman. The character played a prominent role in the Daredevil stories of the late 1970s and early 1980s written by Frank Miller, and the two have had a bitter, violent feud ever since.

The Kingpin also appeared in the 1990s-era Spider-Man animated series and in the 2003 Daredevil film, where he was played by Michael Clarke Duncan, who reprised his role in a subsequent Spider-Man animated series.
