While I didn't really care for the look of the Black Cat's costume and felt this storyline wasn't quite as good as most of the previous ones, I still thought it was good enough for four stars and would consider it a solid storyline and a recommended read.

For anyone whose reading this and rolling their eyes, I do know that comics aren't movies and I do know that it's a periodical and it's not a one shot purpose story, but the characters are so much more important than cramming them into pre determined devices.

MCD did a mediocre job at best, i expected more from the kingpin in the DD movie, however, i didn't think it was essential to have kingpin as a flman in the spidey cartoon.
I mean i dont mind MCD as kingpin in DD its just that with millions of comics around and with kingpin out with his own comic its a bit surreal having one character portrayed as 2 different colours, one fl and one white.

Fisk unveils to Leonard his plan to introduce smack, which was previously only sold to fls in the ghetto, to the white neighborhoods and the suburbs.
It's clearly the past, but by not putting a specific year on it, it can sell as Kingpin's rise in the late 40's just as well as his rise in the early 60's.
It'll be hard to paint Spidey that way, but Bruce Jones proves he's up to the task by getting the Kingpin's character down pat without reducing him to some mob stereotype.
