History : from the The Unofficial Handbook to the Marvel Universe
Fisk was a poor child growing up in the slums of New York City, and killed a man when he was 12. He was always determined to be the best at whatever he did, and fanatically trained his body in many martial arts as well as his mind in many theories, including political science (from stolen books, of course.) Forming a small gang, he quickly built them into a prominent criminal force that eventually became one of the largest ciminal syndicates in New York, with Fisk in charge of it all. During this rise of power, Fisk met and married the socialite Vanessa, becoming a socialite himself, and had a son, Richard. The Kingpin of Crime took advantage of the then-neophyte Spider-Man’s retirement to start a massive crime wave that would crush his rivals, the Maggia. Unfortunately, his plans backfired when Spider-Man resurfaced, who even stopped Kingpin’s order on the life of J Jonah Jameson, who then used the Daily Bugle to expose the Kingpin. The crime ring seemed to fall apart. Kingpin then tried to use his HYDRA connections to try to undermine the United States government and then rule the world, but he left HYDRA when he saw the Nazi Red Skull involved with the organization.

Soon, Vanessa demanded Fisk to retire from crime, and Fisk agreed, retiring to Japan and even agreeing to turn over incriminating documents on his former friends. However, the leaders of Kingpin’s former crime ring wanted to stop this, and kidnapped and apparently killed Vanessa. Fisk then re-assumed his leadership, leaking files (through lawyer Matt Murdock, Daredevil) that got many of his competitors jailed. Fisk used the opportunity to make his own crime ring stronger than ever. Eventually, Kingpin tried to set up his own mayoral candidate, and would have succeeded if not for Daredevil, who found Vanessa alive and would return her only if Kingpin withdrew his mayoral candidate from running for office. He did, but Vanessa remained virtually autistic. Later, Kingpin used Karen Page’s drug addiction to acquire information on her boyfriend, Daredevil, and thus learned his true identity. Kingpin used this information to destroy Murdock’s legal career and ultimately rendered him virtually penniless and to the point of insanity. Getting better, Kingpin continued to send super-thugs, such as Typhoid Mary, on attacks against Daredevil, but Murdock, after a long while, got back at Fisk, exposing him and his idenity, rendering him penniless, and taking the recovering Vanessa into hiding in Europe.
