Here's today's entry in the A-Z Challenge. My theme is "Golden Age Comic Book Characters with the Same Name As Modern-Day Characters."
The King -- a/k/a King Standish -- was a crime-fighting, non-powered millionaire playboy who first appeared in 1940's Flash Comics #3 from National Periodicals (DC).
A new King first appeared -- as far as I could find -- in The King #1 from Jet City Comics, as recently as 2015. I couldn't find much information about him, sorry.
Thanks for your time.
