"I saw a couple of older comics, recently, that featured [the Kingpin] and I wondered what his current status was and if anything cool was happening/had happened, involving him.
And, although I should just go look at my ESSENTIAL OHotMU volumes, I'm wondering about his "powers" and abilities.
Mostly, I'm thinking of a fight I saw between the Kingpin and the Red Skull. At the time the 'Skull was sporting a body that was actually a clone of Steve Rogers, so he had Captain America's strength and endurance, along with his own, apparently impressive martial arts prowess.
In that fight, the Kingpin's pressure points were so heavily padded and his strength was incredible that the Skull was catching all sorts of hell.
Now, I prefer "my Kingpin" to be something less than super-powered, but this made for an incredibly impressive fight. I'd even call it a "new classic."
I wondered if there was anything like that that'd happened with the Kingpin, more recently.
The last time I saw him was at the end of Millar's Spider-Man hc.
So, yeah. This is basically an all things Kinpin thread, I guess."
