Biography


This legend entered the GWF in 2086 after being recruited by Thantos for the Evil Ones squad. Exo-King was the unofficial leader of the team that included Death Knight and Killer Queen. This massive fighter became embroiled in a classic feud with another mountain of a man, Massif. Exo-King possessed formidable power that was further enhanced robotic implants. These were placed in his arms as part of Thantos' plan to compete with Massif. The two giants continued their feud into the tag division when Exo-King teamed with Killer Queen and Massif with newcomer Earthquake.

The Evil Ones eventually morphed into the Royal Court that saw the Royal Overlord as the group's manager. This led to a power struggle between Exo-King and the new manager. The struggle eventually saw Exo-King take a one-year sabbatical from the GWF in 2093. He returned the following year minus the robotic implants and a new name, King Lear. The reinvigorated giant joined forces with Killer Queen and Mesmer as the King's Court. The newly formed squad began feuding with the Royal Court. Lear’s son entered the GWF in 2095 under the moniker Jack of Diamonds. Lear proved victorious in this feud by 2096.

It was this year that the King's Court participated in a three-way feud with the Collector's Workshop and the Galactic Rebels. Lear eventually returned to his Exo-King moniker but without the robotic implants. A couple of years later Exo-King stepped back from wrestling and focused on managing his son. Exo-King retired from wrestling in 2106 and would stay that way for three years. He reformed the King's Court in the CPC in 2109. Exo-King kept the squad going for years weathering betrayals from Raven and Sentinel. He would soon find himself going "head-to-head" with Jack of Diamonds over the latter's erratic behavior and unexplained absences. Implications soon surfaced that Jack had some dealings with organized crime. All of this led to Exo-King cutting ties with Jack of Diamonds.

Exo-King began to see the young Zed Marlowe as a substitute son. Marlowe transformed his image into that of Prince Zed in 2116. That same year Jack of Diamonds was reinstated after recent behavior was explained. This led to the arrival of Gunnar, Exo-King's surrogate son so to speak, to the CPC. It turns out that Exo-King's family took Gunnar in as a youth and cared for him through his teenage years. The feud between father and son only intensified as Gunnar joined Jack against the King's Court.

It was this year that many felt Exo-King was starting to lose his grip on reality. Family and friends, including Zed and Exo-King's wife, tried unsuccessfully to get the man psychiatric help. Zed approached Jack for help with his father in late-2119. The two concocted a plan along with the rest of Jack's teammates. The group forcibly placed Exo-King in a cruiser with his wife. The cruiser then left to take Exo-King to get the help he so desperately needed. A short while later it was revealed that he had an advanced tumor that required immediate surgery. The tumor was successfully removed but the problems did not end there. Exo-King was suffering from heavy poisoning brought on by the use of the robotic implants used earlier in his career. The prognosis was that he would be treated but would never be the same again. This was due mainly to the poisoning causing extensive bodily damage. Exo-King left the wrestling world completely to begin the healing process physically as well as with his son.
