CBR's Comics Should Be Good: Comic Book Legends Revealed
Welcome to the two-hundred and seventieth in a series of examinations of comic book legends and whether they are true or false
COMIC LEGEND: Wanted was based on a pitch by Mark Millar to DC for a Secret Society of Supervillains series.
STATUS: Enough Truth for a True
Mark Millar and JG Jones’ Wanted was about a young man who finds out that his father is part of a secret society of supervillains.
Ever since the hit comic book came out in 2003, it has been rumored that the story was originally written for DC as a pitch by Millar for a mini-series about the ACTUAL Secret Society of Supervillains.
Like many things, the truth is somewhere in the middle.
