Gabriel Maxberry, known publicly as King, was the original leader of the Slaughterhouse Nine.
King would call his protege by his first name, Jacob, practically purring the word. He considered Jacob a "killer-in-training". Weaver believed that he was one of the few Nine members who would immediately report cheating to his superior, rather than seeing it as fun.
Bonesaw's clones of King, based on historical accounts, weren't embarrassed by nudity. They were unaware that Jack had been the one to kill them.
Abilities and PowersEdit
King's power took any physical harm he suffered and transferred it among people he'd touched within the last twenty-four hours.
He also possessed enhanced strength and durability.
It's possible that King was a star athlete who turned to drugs, resulting in his trigger event.
King was the initial leader of the Slaughterhouse Nine. He ran the Nine as a "brute squad" similar to the Teeth. He was the one who gave Harbinger his name. King's immunity to Gray Boy allowed King to recruit him. He was killed at the hands of Jack Slash and Harbinger in 1987.
King was one of the many former Slaughterhouse Nine members cloned by Bonesaw, and served in the Slaughterhouse Nine-Thousand under King's former pupil Jacob. Another instance of him was combined with Hatchet Face to create Tyrant.
