Feeling Like the Queenpin (12/17/12)

Never heard of her, but I'm going to assume the Queenpin has a totally different body than the Kingpin otherwise that would still be an insult.

Google doesn't really a Queenpin Spidey villain, so I figure she's one of the many villains who were created to fill his extra popularity in this world.
Heck, there are probably zillions of fan-created characters who are popular enough for millions to be familiar with them.

I think it might be just a reference to Kingpin. As in, Kingpin is very powerful, a Queenpin would be a woman on top of the world, that sort of thing. I sorta assumed this was supposed to refer to an attitude, not to physical looks.

In short, I figured "Queenpin" simply meant, well, "queen" in this context.

...Also, since in this world the Kingpin is "Representative Fisk", his character's probably been going in significantly different directions than in ours.
