* CreateYourOwnHero: Invoked by Mr. Rictus, a CardCarryingVillain who routinely [[YouKilledMyFather murders a kid's parents in front of him]] to see if this will happen (in this world, the supervillains won decisively by banding together and rewroting reality so heroes forgot who they were). So far, nothing.

Added DiffLines:

* PlotArmor: Either that, or the Killer and the Fox are the only ones capable of actually hit the target they are shooting at. The Sucker and Shitface, however, are two egregius examples: the former wastes no time talking when he has to use his powers against [[spoiler: the Imp]], but when it's Wesley and the Fox's turn he [[spoiler: instead takes just enough time gloating to have him reach his limit]]; the latter doesn't take any action against the two and even [[spoiler: let's itself be held at gunpoint (despite bragging about being bulletproof ''after'' the Fox shot it, but Wesley had the bleach ready by then)]], as before, he had a more pragmatic attitude when he killed [[spoiler: the Professor]].

* AllThereInTheManual: Several character backstories that were not made apparent in the actual story were included in the ''Wanted Dossier'':
** Sucker is explained to be a parasitic alien lifeform that lives through attaching itself to various unwitting hosts, thus making him an {{Expy}} of {{ComicBook/Venom}}.
** Imp is considered an infant in the dimension he hails from. He's also having an affair with Rictus mook Deadly Nightshade.



** Sucker is [[Characters/SupermanRoguesGallery Parasite]].

to:

** Sucker is [[Characters/SupermanRoguesGallery Parasite]].Parasite]], with a bit of {{ComicBook/Venom}} for good measure.


Added DiffLines:

* ThrillSeeker: Deadly Nightshade is said to be sleeping with Imp for this reason. Every sexual encounter the two has has the chance to unmake reality.

'''''Wanted''''' is a comic series by Creator/MarkMillar and JG Jones that operates on one simple principle: superheroes really ''do'' exist in our world. Well, at least they did until 1986, when all the supervillains in the world teamed up for the express purpose of defeating every superhero in the world. However, getting rid of the superheroes and divvying the world up into sections to make money unencumbered by spandex-clad do-gooders wasn't enough for the supervillains. Did we mention they are ''super''villains? They used magic and technology to alter reality and people's memories, removing the superheroes from all recorded history and recall.

* ToiletHumor: Wesley and Fox take out Shithead, a supervillain [[TalkingPoo made out of poo]], with cleaning products. The result is illustrated by a panel showing a toilet bowl with shit smeared all over it and the caption noting "this is what happened to the last guy who fucked with us".

Added DiffLines:

* CessationOfExistence: Mr Rictus was originally an extremely religious man who did only good but after briefly dying on the operating table and realizing there was no afterlife, he became one of the world's worst supervilains after realizing there was no consequences for being bad.
** Weirdly Mark Millar's other comic ''Chosen'' is implied to be set in the same universe and it's about the second coming of Jesus.
