King’s Army is the propaganda machine for John King, the tyrant misanthrope criminal mastermind immortalized in the short film “Skull Punch”. The army was formed in early 2012 by King to recruit new members for his criminal organisation.
When a member joins the ‘Join King’s Army’ Facebook group, they are ‘tagged’ by John King. There is now a bomb inside their brain, and they must complete the tasks set by King. By obeying him, they can work their way up the ranks of King’s Army with the promise of reward. If they fail to follow John King’s instructions from this point forward, they are, without question or enquiry, Skullpunched.
There have also been occasions where John King has offered rewards to his soldiers for their loyalty, in an attempt to further attract new members and consolidate his base.
In mid 2012 rifts inside King’s Army began to emerge with some of King’s followers supporting a demand for John King’s own Skullpunching. Much of this was incited by a mysterious new member of the Army known as James Murray, who had been posting inflammatory anti-King material inside the group.
When John King announced the theft of his Skullpunch case (including bomb, injector gun, Skullpunch detonator and all things needed for a successful Skullpunch), he set his followers to the task of finding it. It wasn’t long before their sleuthing led them to the James Murray figure, who had for a while posted photos of the stolen case on his own Facebook wall.
This discovery set off a chain reaction inside the Army with James Murray calling for the overthrow of John King through his creation of an alternative movement, '‘Resist John King’. His first video message to his potential followers was an Anonymous style call for action against King’s viciousness.
Through this video and his own testimony, James Murray’s goal was to warn the wider population of the dangers of John King, his Army and his ‘propaganda film’ Skull Punch
Since then, activity between the two parties has been carried out through a sequence of threats, covert operations and the revelation of double agents working inside both the Army and the Resistance.
