I think Owl works better as a rival to Kingpin, then trying to make him a lieutenant of Kingpin. Owl is really just not that interesting on his own and I think its easier to do things with him if he is contrasted with Kingpin, Kingpin is the calm, cool, in control crime boss, who relies on subtle manipulation while Owl has a nasty temper, spills blood at the drop of a hat and maintains control through brute force. Kingpin is more dangerous in the long term, but Owl is more dangerous in the short term, which traps DD in the middle if there is a war between these two.
