In Daredevil, Wilson Fisk has not only risen to the top, he’s taken on the leadership of one of the most influential cities in the country.
In Daredevil #595, written by Charles Soule with art by Stefano Landini, Fisk becomes Mayor Fisk and that means the tables have turned and Matt Murdock is now the outlaw.
Charles Soule explains:
MAYOR FISK is really about just one thing: Kingpin becomes…the king. On page 1 of the story, Wilson Fisk has already become the mayor, with all of the power and resources that come with the position. So, Daredevil has lost the one thing he thought he could always rely on, the place he was sworn to protect: New York City. From there, we see how, and if, he can fight to win it back.
Marvel are also teasing that Fisk’s new power over the city will impact other Marvel heroes, too, in ways yet to be seen.
Soule expands on that thus:
The nice thing about the story is that Fisk isn’t just mayor in Daredevil. It happens in every book across the Marvel Universe. So, every street-level hero (and even the Avengers-types) will feel the pressure from Fisk’s term in office. As you might imagine, he makes New York a very uncomfortable place for anyone who dares to call themselves a superhero. I’ve been building to MAYOR FISK since my first issue on the title, and it’s designed to be a huge epic in the best Daredevil-Kingpin tradition.
The Kingpin’s rule as mayor begins this November.
