The Brief: Daredevil "Karen and Kingpin" memes feature Kingpin, aka Wilson Fisk, towering over reporter Karen Page. The meme is used to represent someone shouting at another person or thing.
Marvel’s Daredevil TV show was canceled after its third (and arguably best) season in November 2018. However, the spirit of the show based on comics of the Red Devil of Hell’s Kitchen lives on in a new set of memes.
These memes began popping up on Twitter after former cast member Deborah Ann Woll shared a photo of Daredevil’s arch nemesis corrupt crime boss Kingpin, aka Wilson Fisk, towering over her character Karen Page, a reporter. She wrote “Caption this :)” over the the memorable scene.
