Awesome: Wanted

The comic

  • Wesley's training. Beating up a bunch of gang members? Check. Then they steal a jet the next issue...

The movie

  • Start of the movie: an assassin hurls himself face first through a glass window to the skyscraper rooftop across the street.
  • When Wesley initially starts training, he fails hilariously at most of his tests, including a particularly brutal one in which he's tied up and repeatedly punched in the face by the Repairman. One day, the Repairman beats Wesley so severely, he falls over bloodied all over and still tied to the chair. But rather than wimper and complain as has been his habit to this point, Wesley actually manages to free himself from the ropes, picks up the chair, breaks it over the head of his trainer, and theb proceeds to beat his ass.
  • Wesley finally gets pushed to the limit by his big, fat, obnoxious boss and tells her off. And then he immediately tops it off by smacking his sorry excuse of a friend in the face with a keyboard, knocking out one of his teeth which goes on to spell "Fuck you" with the keys that come flying off.
  • Also of particular note: Wesley lays siege to the Fraternity fortress. With exploding rats.
    • During this scene, he shoots a guy through the eye, jams his pistol through the hole, and uses his body as a shield while continuing to kill.
  • The Good-bye bullet scene, courtesy of Fox.
  • And the final scene where Wesley lures Sloan out into the open with a decoy and shoots him in the brain. He then proceeds to break the fourth wall, asking the audience, "What the fuck have you done lately?"
    • Don't forget the fact that he shot it over several miles through cars and windows.
    • Not to mention that the bullet nearly hit both his former best friend and his boss on the way to Sloan.
    • And again in the ending. "This is just a motherfucking decoy."
  • Most cutscenes in Weapons of Fate, right to the end when Wesley defeats the Immortal.
  • Fox's Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Wesley's one-man assault on the textile factory.
  • The Big Damn Kiss Fox lays on Wesley in front of his bitchy ex-girlfriend which totally shuts her up.
  • From the game, when Cross can't get a shot at the Immortal because the Immortal is shooting his bullets out of the air, he improvises by aiming down the barrel of the Immortal's gun.
    • More awesome is that while curving bullets is a core mechanic of the game, you can curve submachine-gun bullets, sending a bunch of them flying and exploding on your enemies.
