The Fall of the Kingpin is Miller’s Born Again in reverse; where the Kingpin once played Murdock’s life like a master puppeteer, destroying pieces along the way, Murdock now has his chance to do the same in return.

The Kingpin, with his hands in every dirty pie in New York City, has further to fall. And he lands much harder.

Daredevil begins by exposing Kingpin’s sole vulnerability: Vanessa, his lost love. Next, Daredevil removes from the field the Kingpin’s right hand and lover, Typhoid Mary — with a cunning strategy that is a bit heartbreaking to see. From there, the red-garbed hero begins dismantling the Kingpin’s empire bit by bit, using a cadre of international terrorists and the country’s top espionage unit as foils in his plan.
