IS David Tennant's Kilgrave a better villain than Daredevil's Wilson Fisk?

Kilgrave is simply incredible as Jessica Jones's big bad.

A man with the power to control others with a thought, Kilgrave goes beyond any respectable boundary. He compels his victims to kill(or at least seriously maim), and shows no remorse in doing so.

He produces arguably the best performance in Jessiva Jones, and plays a big role in the series' success. 

Who was the better villain?

This poll ended on 30 November 2015.

Kilgrave / Purple Man (Jessica Jones) - 71%

Wilson Fisk / Kingpin (Daredevil) - 28%

This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.

As a whole, Jessica Jones picks up the ball where Daredevil left off. 

Daredevil proved the Netflix-exclusive model could work for Marvel's properties, and in terms of content the streaming service provides a place where the darkest characters in Marvel's suite can be brought to life. 

Kilgrave pushes the envelope in these areas, and despite his worst atrocities staying in comic book pages the series alludes to such crimes. 

But is he scarier than Vincent D'Onofrio's Fisk? 

Fisk, or Kingpin as he is more widely known, was a terrifying brute of a man.

Have you enjoyed Marvel's Jessica Jones?

This poll ended on 30 November 2015.

Yes - it raises the bar - 69%

Yes - it's good but not the best thing ever - 28%

No - I haven't watched it yet but I will. - 0%

No - I'm not interested - 0%

This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.

He was a ruthless man who demanded perfection, and on more than one occasion took matters into his bloody hands. He didn't accept failure, as one of his (former) henchmen learned the hard way courtesy of a car door  

Kingpin pushed Daredevil to the brink. His actions essentially drove Daredevil to create his persona. 

Both men left trails of destruction in their wake. 

Both men tangled with two of Marvel's heroes with varying degrees of "success". 

So who did it better?
