An advertisement for Wind's presidential campaign ran on television, discussing his involvement in various grass roots events. Wind traveled to San Concepcion, for a banquet in his own benefit. There he met with ambassador Reich, who secretly transferred the Beast, into him. The Beast took control of Ken Wind, whom the Hand felt was destined to become the next president of the United States. Elektra assassinated Reich, but realized too late that the Beast was now within Wind[1].
Back in Washington, D.C., Wind then met with S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Garrett, Honda, and Minelli, simultaneously pressuring Senator Bob Willing to oppose funding of S.H.I.E.L.D. and making comments in support of Honda and Minelli's social status. Having been linked to Elektra, Garrett was able to detect the nauseating mayonnaise smell emanating from Wind. When Garrett realized the threat Wind posed and considered assassinating him, Wind revealed that he could read Garrett's mind and then crushed his hand[2].
Wind then met with a US General, discussing his political agenda, and sharing a glass of the Beast's milk with him. The General then felt the Beast's direction to launch all of America's warheads. The General prepared to follow out the Beast's commands, but managed to resist and shot himself in the head[3].
Garrett and Elektra's presence was discovered by S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Chastity McBryde; she led a squadron of agents to engage the would-be assassins while Wind was spirited away in an escape shuttle. Elektra managed to directly assault the Beast itself, after which she and Garrett destroyed the helicopter carrying Wind's shuttle. Wind crashed in the Lincoln Memorial, where he was defended by Perry, who quickly dismantled Garrett when he approached Wind. Perry then battled Elektra, while Wind stepped on Garrett's throat to prevent him from telling Elektra how to kill Perry by destroying his brain. Elektra succeeded in slaying Perry, after which Wind knew he was defeated[4].

  • When asked how to pronounce his last name, Ken Wind's response was always "Not wind the watch... wind -- like the air."
  • Throughout Elektra Assassin, Ken Wind's face is always depicted by a pasted-in photograph instead of a drawing. In fact, only two photographs were used. Both photographs are self-portraits of Bill Sienkiewicz.
