Kick-Ass’s Story So Far:
Kick-Ass follows the story of Dave Lizewki, an ordinary teen who has a predilection for comic books. His inspiration drives him to become a real superhero. Although Dave has no superhero powers, still he enters the crime-fighting with zeal and courage. Following his first experience of being “Kick-Ass”, he meets with an accident, which gives me immense power and strength. A help call from his crush, Katie Deauxma via his MySpace account leads him to vigilantes, Big Daddy, and Hit-Girl indirectly. The father-daughter duo is set on a mission to revenge t the crime boss Frank D’ Amico. Kick-Ass’s involvement with the vigilantes draws Amico’s suspicion towards him. Later, Amico’s son, Chris disguises as Red Mist to confront Kick-Ass, only to discover that Big Daddy is behind all the attacks made to Frank. Finally, Red Mist traces the vigilantes and tries to assassinate them. Hit-Girl survives despite the shooting, yet his father is set in a blaze by a gangster. The closing scene follows Frank’s killing at the hands of KIckAss. In the climax, Dave and Mindy return to their normal life while Red Mist is still alive.

Kick Ass’s first and second installments featured the same cast. If the new film comes out, there is a fair assumption that most characters will return for the upcoming part except Chloe Grace Moretz.
