Just when you thought the government could be more corrupt, Wilson Fisk is running for Mayor of Manhattan in Daredevil #595.

Charles Soule and Stefano Landini bring us the tale in the latest Marvel Legacy title.

Matt Murdock has always had the law on his side, but now that Manhattan is under new rule, the tables have been turned: and it’s the vigilante hero who is on the outside of the law, with the Mayor of Crime ruling over Manhattan. But Mayor Fisk’s rule won’t just affect the street team – all Marvel characters will feel his power! For fans who have been looking for a closer connectivity within the Marvel Universe, DAREDEVIL #595 is a perfect jumping off point.

“The nice thing about the story is that Fisk isn’t just mayor in Daredevil,” said Soule. “It happens in every book across the Marvel Universe. So, every street-level hero (and even the Avengers-types) will feel the pressure from Fisk’s term in office. As you might imagine, he makes New York a very uncomfortable place for anyone who dares to call themselves a superhero. I’ve been building to MAYOR FISK since my first issue on the title, and it’s designed to be a huge epic in the best Daredevil-Kingpin tradition.”

Daredevil #595 arrives on November 8, 2017, and I think this is one that I’ll be picking up to see how this move impacts the greater Marvel Universe.
