    Short summary describing this team.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    After the destruction of all the heroes at the hands of all the worlds villains (a plan formed by The Professor) The Fraternity was formed they quickly cleaned up the destruction caused by the great battle and wiped the minds of everyone on earth making it seem like super heroes never exisisted except in comic books and T.V shows and the heroes that survived (only ones mentioned were the big three of the Wanted universe based off of the DCU's Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman) Then going on to form the council of five and rule the world. 
    Similarities have been drawn between the villians of Wanted and the villians in the DCU (most likely intentionally). Such examples include t he two major characters:

    -   Wesley Gibson /   The Killer , based on   Deadshot,   Bullseye   (weapons expert with perfect aim)

    -   The Fox , based on   Catwoman   (animal-based jewel thief and joy-killer, former girlfriend of "The Detective"/Batman)

    There are five arch-villains in charge of the world. Two are analogues of specific DC villains, while the other three are pastiches of prototypical comic book arch-villains. The Fraternity consists of many sterotypical and un-original super-villlians. This is by no means copying, rather an analytical look at the villian that exist in the DC (and to a much lesser extent Marvel) universes. The villians and criminals that the Fraternity consits of include (As taken from Wikipedia)

    -   Professor Solomon Seltzer, based on   Dr. Sivana   and   Lex Luthor   (super-intelligent inventor/megalomaniac)

    -   Mr. Rictus, based on   The Joker   and   Black Mask, with a touch of the Red Skull (sadistic, amoral, joke-using murderer)

    -   The Future , a time-traveling bigot in the vein of   Kang,   Per Degaton, or   The Lord of Time, with a touch of   Hate Monger   (neo-Nazi madman)

    -   The Emperor , an anachronistic autocrat reminiscent of "sophisticated" villains such as   Ra's al Ghul, The   Yellow Claw, The   Mandarin   or   Fu Manchu

    -   Adam-One , a primeval immortal that's a pastiche of   Vandal Savage   and others, such as the   Ultraverse's   Rex Mundi   (immortal conqueror)

    The Professor's Gang   (based on   Superman's enemies) is:

    -   Brain Box , based on   Brainiac   (alien intelligence)

    The Imp , based on   Mr. Mxyzptlk   (hyper-powerful trans-dimensional dwarf)

    -   Fuckwit , based on   Bizarro   (imperfect clone of powerful super-hero)

    -   Sucker , based on   Parasite   (able to steal the powers of other villains) and Marvel Comics   Venom   (alien organism that takes over a human host).

    -   Doll-Master , based on   Toyman   (commands lethal toys)

    Mr. Rictus's Gang   (based on   Batman's enemies) is:

    -   The Avian , based on   The Penguin   and the   Vulture   (spider-man) (bird-based villain)

    -   The Frightener , based on   The Scarecrow, (uses fear and viruses as weapons); also similar in appearance to   Carnage   from Marvel Comics

    -   The Puzzler , based on The   Riddler   (puzzle-themed villain).

    -   Shithead , based on   Clayface   (shape-shifting mud-monster, actually composed of feces)

    -   Deadly Nightshade , based on   Poison Ivy   (plant-based villainess)

    -   Johnny Two-Dicks , based on   Two-Face   and   Ventriloquist   (a milquetoast controlled by a nefarious second personality)

    -   The Mad March Hare , based on   The Mad Hatter   (Alice in Wonderland-themed madman)

    Throughout the comic, a villian similair to Magneto also pops up, along with a Thor/Loki look alike. Iron Fist and Luke Cage look alike also make appearances.

    Millars creation of the Fraternity also pokes fun at the fact that villians never work together effectively. In the wanted world, they all sign up underneath one leader, Solomon Seltzer.
