    Villains conquered the world in 1986
    Villains conquered the world in 1986

    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 in 1986 and wiped the minds of everyone on earth making it seem like super heroes never existed except in comic books and T.V shows and the heroes that survived. 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)

    The Fraternity was ruled by five of the world's worst super-villain criminal masterminds in the world:

    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:

    Rictus's gang and some of Future Here's gang

    • 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.
