Once the sun sets he takes the law into his own hands in a completely different way. He uses his abilities to fight against criminals in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen like the Russian mafia and one of the worst criminals, Wilson Grant Fisk.
Fisk, known as the Kingpin, is the crime overlord in New York City who ends up in prison because of Matt’s work as Daredevil. Fisk now has it out for Daredevil.
