Why is the Kingpin wearing a Spiderman tie on the Legendary Dark City expansion box. Isn't that kind of like the head of Coke wearing a Pepsi hat?

He is the Kingpin of ironic novelty ties.

Kingpin is mocking spidey with his tie.

Also the Kingpin on this box doesn't look like Micheal Clark Duncan either.

Like JJJ says, Spider-man is a menace! I read in the Daily Bugle that he and Kingpin are working together now!

In some continuities Kingpin owns all of the Spider-Man licensing rights starting from the wrestling bouts from his origin story. Since Spidey can't legally contest those rights without revealing his identity and getting involved in a protracted legal battle he likely can't afford, it is in Kingpin's interest to keep showing off Spider-Man merchandise.

It wouldn't surprise me if he doesn't occasionally set up some very public heist that can't be traced back to him, just so Spider-Man can win and stay popular with the fans. Gotta sell those Spider-mobile action sets somehow!

You guys have it all wrong! It's not a Spidey tie, it's a daredevil tie. Made from 100% authentic matt murdock.
