He was named "King" by his father as a joke, a play on the phrase "King For A Day." An ex-soldier, King Faraday took a position as a counter-espionage agent for the U.S. government and engaged in a variety of standard spy-type capers. Faraday has since been incorporated full-bore into the DC Universe as a member of the Central Bureau of Intelligence. At one point, he was Nightshade's mentor. In fact, he had a hand in both her and Bronze Tiger being recruited into Task Force X. He has also teamed up with Batman a few times. On two of the occasions he has helped Batman in the capture of Two-Face.

One Year Later, he is a member of Checkmate, serving as the Bishop for White Queen Amanda Waller.
