  • The Kingpin (Matthew Michael "Matt" Murdock; colloquial: "Western Sun of the Hand" or "Matt Murderdock") is a supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He was created by Jason Latour and Robbi Rodriguez. The character debuted in Edge of Spider-Verse issue #2 as part of the 2014–15 "Spider-Verse" comic book storyline as the archenemy of Gwen Stacy / Spider-Woman, continuing into the ongoing series Spider-Gwen that began in 2015. The "Kingpin" name is a reference to the crime lord title in Mafia slang nomenclature. Murdock is a variant of Kingpin and an alternate-universe version of Matt Murdock / Daredevil. He lives on Earth-65, where Murdock's origin is the same as his Earth-616 counterpart, being blinded as a child before being trained by the similarly blinded Stick to hone his consequentially acquired physical abilities and superhuman senses following his father Jack's murder, diverting when Stick is also killed by ninjas working for the Hand, whom Murdock then kills. Impressed by his abilities, the Hand recruits Murdock to become an assassin in Japan, rising through their ranks before being sent back to New York City, receiving a law degree and rising to become the head of organized crime. After his designated patsy and best friend Wilson Fisk is falsely arrested by George Stacy as the Kingpin, Murdock has a midlife crisis and considers suicide before sensing a kindred spirit in passing superhero (and wanted murderer) Spider-Woman, and electing to attempt to mold her into his apprentice, personal enforcer, and eventual successor. Murdock also becomes romantically involved with S.I.L.K. CEO Cindy Moon, the billionaire responsible for Spider-Woman's powers. A young version of the character makes a silent cameo appearance in the 2018 animated feature film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. (en)
