I'm not sure; reason being all 4 beasts in Daniel 7 are represented in Revelation 13 as an amalgamation. So the Wild Beast is really the 4th beast of Daniel 7 after it adopts the other 3. As you noted, that leaves us with two options: "consecutive kingdom took over for the next and adopted the traits of the last to be seen as a whole in Rev 13, or that in fact each beast in Dan 7 has a modern day fulfillment (multi fulfillment)" I prefer the modern day fulfillment without the multi-fulfillment, as it overly complicates the picture. (doesn't mean it's wrong though .. I just can't wrap my head around it lol) Definitely; but the description Jesus used, and the same sort of language in Ezekiel, Isaiah and Jeremiah applied to Israel, gives us a clue. I think I know where you are going with this though! Babylon = Vatican, which is the mouthpiece lion of the Wild Beast? So multi-fulfillment; you might be right. The 4 wings on the leopard does seem to strongly correlate with the Daniel 8 4 horns.
