The Kingpin takes center stage in this new Civil War II tie-in series. The series finds Fisk staying one step ahead of Marvel’s heroes even though a new Inhuman is capable of predicting crime before it happens. The Kingpin definitely has an ace up his sleeve that has allowed him to not only maintain his power but to thrive during a time when heroes have the upper hand. It’s going to be interesting to see what Fisk has up his sleeve to keep Marvel’s heroes and villains at bay and keep his position. Will the non-super powered crime boss keep his secret safe? Check out the covers and a few panels from the first issue below.
Fisk has always been a compelling character and I am happy to see Marvel giving him the spotlight even if it’s with a 4 issue tie-in series.
