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. Having explained to him his absent father was in fact the unstoppable Killer, and that Wesley - having unwittingly inherited his father's capacity for murder - was due to receive his fortune and position on the Fraternity, Gibson gladly seized the opportunity to take what he felt life owed him. 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.

The Ability to End Life: a vague but innate superhuman ability of the Killer that allows him to kill anyone with almost anything.
