Synopsis:
The first issue of Wanted starts with Wesley Gibson describing his life. The first pages have his girlfriend cheating on him with his best friend, his boss making work hell, being chased home by Latin Kings tribe and going home to look on webs for diseases he might have. His life is crap and he knows it.

Wesley states that his father walked out on him and his mother when he was 18 weeks old and then the man is shown.

Wesley's father is a middle aged man with a big gut and a lof of money. He's about to start filming two younger men having sex (while explaining that he's not gay) when the building they are in is filled with bullets. Mr. Gibson jumps out the window, chases the attackers and guns them down. When he's about to kill the last one, he gests shot in the face by an unseen gunman. Following this scene there is a funeral for Mr. Gibson and members of the secret villain brotherhood that he was part of attend the funeral to discuss his death.
