Kilgrave, but only because he arrives in the MCU fully formed, whereas Fisk is still evolving into the malice we know and love.

But Fisk is one of my 3 favorite characters in the extended universe.

Marvel might prefer debuting Bullseye on The Punisher as a secondary villain first. Frank and Bullseye had run-ins during their early days before the marksman ever met Matt or Kingpin. Their battles led Bullseye to his role as Kingpin's chief assassin and obsession with Daredevil. The writers and producers are advised to study Garth Ennis's take on the character in PunisherMAX.

EDIT: I was going to post a screenshot of Bullseye's Wikipedia page and a panel of PunisherMAX, but I'd rather not spoil the surprise

Bullseye was a Daredevil villian dating back to the 70's and Punisher didn't get his first solo series to 1986. With the exceptions of Punisher vs Bullseye by Daniel Way in 2005 and PunisherMAX by Jason Aaron in 2012, Frank and Bullseye have not had very much interaction.

I understand, but the Punisher was written into Bullseye's origin before meeting Daredevil. Bullseye appearing on Netflix's The Punisher would serve as great connective tissue to Daredevil Season 3, especially if his obsession with Frank in PunisherMAX were written as transferred to Matt between shows.

@ultrastarkiller: I think the article is alluding to Batman's intent to kill Superman in battle.

Read various articles who theorize that Enchantress is the villain... but after some digging (I don't really know about her character too well, so looked up some wiki's)... if they were to adapt Enchantress' story on how she joins the SS, this plants the seed for Darkseid:

"[Enchantress] is next recruited into the newly formed 'Task Force X', soon to be known as the 'Suicide Squad', on the offer that they could keep her villainous side in check. In her first mission, she uses massive magical energy to defeat Brimstone, which sends her over the edge and she becomes temporarily truly villainous"

So who or what is Brimstone (another character I'm not really familiar with):

"Brimstone is a supervillain and artificial construct in the DC Universe.

Within the context of the stories, Brimstone is initially created by Darkseid as a part of his plot to turn the population of Earth against their superheroes. He does this by implanting a nuclear reactor with a "techno-seed" which modifies it to create the several story tall Brimstone. It is speculated by the heroes that that it is composed of superheated plasma.

Its initial rampage is ended by the Suicide Squad when Deadshot shoots out the creature's 'heart' "

Doesn't the damage (like the Humvee) look more 'melted' than anything else? And it would setup an intro to Darkseid? Hmmm...

!!!!!

If it's done right, sure. After Infinity War, Marvel could put the spotlight on a new generation of characters like the Fantastic Four and the X-Men.

The only reason I don't think Batman should be black is the fact that his family has been insanely rich since before they came to America and that's a huge part of his back story, and PC or not, that is simply not in line with history. The Waynes likely came over on the Mayflower, if Batman were black it'd mean they most likely came on a very different boat.

What about Slaves who got land and stuff like that after The Civil War? Is Batman having old money really even essential to the character to be honest even.

Regardless if it doesn't happen in the DC multiverse I wouldn't expect much on this. So no Bruce Wayan :P

Yes, portraying Bruce Wayne as an entitled beneficiary of Old Money is crucial to his mythos. Watching a twentysomething Bruce throw his privilege away to travel the world and learn from the desperate is an important to his understanding of the criminal mind. I am a Ethiopian/Eritrean-American who identifies as black, and I wouldn't buy a black, American Batman-esque character with Bruce's level of wealth. Black wealth in America isn't plentiful enough to write a believable Bruce Wayne analogue without reducing his assets. "Black Batman from Africa" makes more sense, especially if he has partial Semetic or Arab ancestry.

There's rich black characters in comics all you need to do is play up all his Wayne (Wayan) corporations.

I like the the idea of a African Batman, being Nigerian myself I'd also make him a King cause I'm Nigerian royalty.

I know, but no rich Black American character has even been portrayed as wealthy as a Wayne or a Stark. Lucius Fox has a job, Bruce Wayne is a Wayne. I don't think black wealth is developed enough yet, but I'm optimistic about the next 20 to 30 years.

A Nigerian Batman would be dope. I'm partial to an Afro-Semetic Batman from the Horn, but either one has my vote.

EDIT: A Nigerian Batman would be totally dope.

T'Challa has more wealth then either Wayne or Stark obviously worth more atleast due to resources and being the reigning leader of a nation.

Given Michael Holt's rise to fame in Future Ends in that possible future he could of been one of the richest men in the world.

Wayne and Stark have jobs they just don't show up most of the time and have people to fill in.

I didn't mean a Nigerian Batman, I meant I'm Nigerian so the idea sounds cool. The country is corrupt so there's that going for a real world place that's corrupt.

I'm not demanding a Black Batman I just don't think it's impossible to create one. The main thing to keep for me with Batman is that he's rich, paranoid, obsessive, smart can fight amd uses gadgets which Nighthawk tends to fall in line with.

Yes, T'Challa is the king of a formerly isolationist, technologically advanced African nation. And you're right, Michael Holt is a character with vast amounts of potential. I meant that Lucius Fox didn't inherit a fortune in addition to leading a company. There's rich, and there's wealth. Chris Rock enjoys telling interviewers about moving his family to an affluent neighborhood after years of success, and finding out his neighbor is a white dentist. But you're right, a Black Batman isn't impossible - it's been done. There's Nighthawk, Night Thrasher, Michael Holt, and Black Panther. But "privilege" is also a major part of Batman's world, and no one of the aforementioned four enjoys this as much as T'Challa, let alone through birthright.
