Kingpin’s a key player in Daredevil season one, but which other comic villains could stop by the show?
Obviously. He won’t show up in Daredevil’s first season ( no doubt because we’re still suffering from Colin Farrell flashbacks), but he’ll have to crop up eventually. A homicidal maniac who has hallucinations thanks to a nasty brain tumour, he’s basically the Joker of the Marvel- verse and Kingpin’s chief assassin.
No superhero is complete without a tortured romance, and Daredevil’s had his share. One of his most notable was this telekinetic trouble- maker, originally hired by Kingpin to assassinate Daredevil. Mary briefly falls in love with the tortured do- gooder, only to ditch him for, uh, Kingpin. Make up your mind, love.
A black- cowled menace who’s repeatedly caused trouble for Daredevil, Mister Fear was originally one of Murdock’s law classmates. He pitches up later as a drug pusher whose product transforms people into suicidal psychotics. When he gives the drug to Murdock’s wife, Mister Fear makes things even more personal. Yeah, dark.
He’s named after a body part ( ooo, scary), but the Hand is actually one of the biggest players in the Marvel- verse. Created by Frank Miller, he’s the leader of a deadly group of ninja assassins who trade in sorcery so potent they can cheat death. Though the Hand appeared in Elektra ( 2005), he’s definitely due a redo.
Though initially sort of a lame super- villain when he was introduced in the ’ 60s ( his power: uh, gliding short distances), Owl later became an insidious and deceptive villain who, at one point, ruled New York’s criminal underworld – and even got Kingpin himself charged with murder. He’s a hoot a minute.
