    Short summary describing this character.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    This version of King is immortal, but this is triggered only when he gets killed. It allows him to be reckless and unpredictable.

    The King has long been a member of various incarnations of the Royal Flush Gang, a group of villians with a playing card motif. A previous version of King had charisma/hypnosis based abilities. Prior to that the Royal Flush Gang just relied on gadgets. They have pestered the Justice League for years, but have never really been a big threat.
