Benedict Kine, also known as the White King, is a mutant in the Marvel Universe. He is a member of the Hellfire Club and a member of Shinobi Shaw's Inner Circle.

Fictional character biography

Benedict Kine, alongside Reeva Payge and Benazir Kaur, joined the Inner Circle of the Hellfire Club following Shinobi Shaw's coup against his father, Sebastian Shaw. Kine was present when Shinobi attempted to force X-Men member Storm into joining him. Kine fought against the X-Men when they tried to rescue Storm but was defeated alongside his fellow Lords Cardinal.

Kine attempted to remove Shinobi Shaw from power and take over the New York branch of the Club by invoking a Rite of Challenging. Kine used the robotic White Knights to hunt down J. Jonah Jameson, hoping that his death would cause the Daily Bugle to cease investigating Hellfire Club. As part of the Rite, Shaw used the Ebon Knights, also robots, to prevent Kine's attempted murder. Jameson was saved thanks to the intervention of Spider-Man and then the X-Men, who were called by Tessa. Following the neutralization of Kine's White Knights, Kine tried to attack Shaw, but was stopped by Spider-Man.

After being defeated, Kine disappeared, presumably to escape Shaw's retribution, and his whereabouts are unknown. If he survived, its unknown if he is among the millions of depowered mutants following House of M.
