  • A born loser, Wesley Gibson resented everyone around him for their mistreatment of him and (perceived or otherwise) contributions to his failures until the truth of the world was revealed to him: superheroes and supervillains were once real. In 1986, however, the villains gathered together to wipe out the heroes and pool their powers to remake the Earth in their own image, without any memory of its champions, with them ruling behind the scenes as the Fraternity.

After several months of training, he was reborn as the second Killer, able to rob, rape and murder as he pleased, working alongside his fellow villains to build their power to ever greater heights.
