Nightwing Vs. The Kingpin



The Matt Murdock face off with Wilson Fisk in the second season of Netflix' Daredevil was one of my favorite scenes of the series.  Not only was it a nice place to showcase Charlie Cox and Vincent D'Onofrio's acting chops, it offered a hint at a potential direction for Season 3... will we be seeing a Born Again-inspired storyline?

Kingpin v Blockbuster (II) would be an interesting match...

This match up feels so natural that I half expect it to be released next month... This is a splendid piece, Ross, and a great combination!

I agree with ELS -- the cover art, and the match-up, just seem so perfectly matched. I almost feel sorry for poor Wilson, though; he'll never know what hit him! (He'll know who hit him, though.)

Vincent D'Onofrio? Playing Kingpin as a CAUCASIAN?! Who would've thunk it?

Seriously, though: it's great to see another member of the Bat-family pitted against Marvel's smoothest criminal. Ever since I read my older brother's Silver Age issue of Spidey (wherein he and JJJ had been chained together in a flooding sewer by Kingpin's mob), I've been delightfully chilled by Wilson Fisk's ruthless cunning and efficiency. It's as if he were Lex Luthor...trapped in the body of a sumo wrestler!

Keep up the good work, Ross. :-)

This reminds me of Nightwing's first enemy in his own series, Blockbuster. The 2 need to team up to take Bludhaven and Nightwing and Daredevil against them.
