The New York mobs are run by Rigoletto. He refuses to “cater to unholy perversions” even though there is money to be made preying on children and dealing crack cocaine. He wants to stick to the old rackets, saying, “We may be criminals, but we are not monsters.” There is unrest among the lower bosses. Rigoletto has a silent, nameless body guard, a giant of a man. He is the only one Rigoletto trusts. After the meeting, the man massages Rigoletto’s temples, then quickly and efficiently snaps his neck. He quietly takes the rose from Rigoletto’s lapel and places it on his own to become the new Kingpin of crime.

Shortly after he has taken control, two junkies try to run a ransom scheme with a girl they abducted for the Kingpin’s child pornography ring. He sends his assassin, Larks, to make an example of them. By the end of the night, Larks is dead and rumors of a “Daredevil” reach the Kingpin’s ears, leaving him to wonder, “Who is he? And why does he worry me so?”

Why is it so hard to use 'enervate' correctly?

SPIDER-MAN #197:

After the scaffolding collapsed in #164, the Kingpin made his way underwater to a drainage pipe, when he found oxygen and collapsed. After that, he suffered temporary amnesia. An attempted hit-and-run ordered by Silvermane restored the Kingpin’s memory. Vanessa gives him an ultimatum: he has 24 hours to give up his life of crime, at which point she’s leaving for good. He agrees, but is deter,mined to kill Spider-Man first, though. He finds him and they fight for 13 pages. The deadline passes, and although Spider-Man is still alive, the Kingpin and Vanessa leave the country.
