King's choice of fashion was named by Mike Myers as an inspiration for his popular movie character Austin Powers. An analogue of Jason King appears in the comic book series The Invisibles, written by Grant Morrison as “Mr. Six”, the so-called “Last of the International Playboys”, and member of “Division X”. In the X-Men comics, the character of Jason Wyngarde (aka Mastermind) was partially inspired by Jason King and Peter Wyngarde. Mastermind had first appeared in the 1960s, but took on the appearance and identity of Jason Wyngarde in the build-up to the X-Men's first confrontation with the Hellfire Club in the late 1970s. Wyngarde had played the leader of another Hellfire club in “A Touch of Brimstone”, an episode of the popular TV series The Avengers, in which Diana Rigg appeared in a leather costume that Jean Grey adopted as the Hellfire Club's Black Queen. He is also one of the inspirations (especially his clothes) for Kim Newman's psychic crime fighter and secret agent Richard Jeperson. Wyngarde is said to have been the inspiration for the character of Fireball in the strip of the same name in D.C. Thompson's Bullet comic.
