And he's right.
Obviously, Mister King also makes extensive use of body-armor. Despite this, he's had virtually every bone in his body broken at least twice.

He was really way too overweight for the look at the start of his career but Mister King is nothing if not efficient in getting his subjects to lose weight.

“New opinions are always suspected, and usually opposed, without any other reason but because they are not already common.”
- John Locke
The Brotherhood of Enlightenment has been around, in secret, for hundreds of years in fact some say Galileo himself founded the brotherhood in secret after he was forced to recant his discoveries under threat of death. They are scientists, philosophers and poets whose purpose is to reform society through reason and advance knowledge through science, promoting science and intellectual interchange and opposing superstition, intolerance, abuses of church, state, and the power of the oligarchy.
The Brotherhood is governed by the Council of Newton, which is always made up of the five senior men and women within the Brotherhood. The Council is currently led by Sir Phillip Humboldt a British physicist who worked alongside Dr. Guy Rousse at the Large Hadron Collider. He was also present when the Collider ruptured and released the wonder that was the Nexus Particle into the world. Sir Phillip disappeared shortly after the incident and did not reappear until six months later when The Brotherhood of Enlightenment made their existence known to the world.
A manifesto was released first. A 200 page pdf sent worldwide declaring a new age of enlightenment that began with the discovery of the Nexus Particle. Equations and designs that would harness the power of the Nexus to create a free renewable source of energy were placed on social networking sites and explained by the members of the Brotherhood via YouTube videos. They were mostly laughed at, jokes were made about them on late night talk shows, and their unconventional sciences ignored or even vilified by the people in power around the world.
Then the Council of Newton proved to the world that they were serious. In a single night the Council, and only the five members of the Council, wearing what has since become known as the Tesla Armor flew into the capitol of the small nation of Tajikistan and by morning they were the new rulers of Tajikistan. The coup was quick and vicious as they wiped out the small military, being careful of the civilian population, and the despotic rulers of the nation were exiled into neighboring countries.
All was not good through. The rulers of the countries surrounding Tajikistan feared that the Brotherhood would not be satisfied by just staying within the borders of their new nation and they were right to be afraid. The Council of Newton and the Brotherhood will not be satisfied until they can make the whole world a better place and as Tajikistan has proven they are not afraid to use force to do so.
In truth, he just knows how to do magic.
Mister Arcane is aware that there's a definite link between his "magic" and the Nexus but he thinks that this is actually a case of the supernatural returning to the world as opposed to appearing for the first time. He's thus extremely interested in finding out if there's people like him out there and investigating cases of the supernatural.
He has even formed his own team of investigators, called The Esoterrics, to deal with the supernatural exclusively.

The mid-term consequences is that the Russian bear has awoken and is in the process of totally rearming into a super power including recruiting many Russian Nexi and giving them training from former NKVD agents.
Russia has eyes on Tajikistan and while the Brotherhood has the technological edge, the Russians would be quite content to simply bury the country under bodies and/or use targeted assassination in its rebuilding of the Russian empire.
