the main protagonist and titular character of Kick-Ass.

Personality[]

David é um adolescente, em última análise, inseguro e educado e moral que está consciente de sua falta de características definidas na vida escolar (alegando que ele não é o nerd da classe ou o palhaço de classe e que ele simplesmente existe). Ele é um seguidor apaixonado da cultura pop, incluindo histórias em quadrinhos, que serve como uma força motriz de sua decisão de se tornar um vigilante fantasiado. Ele tem um lado romântico , pois ele se mostra fortemente atraído por um colega de classe chamado Katie, bem como um professor conhecido como Sra. Zane (esta última dessas atrações parece ser puramente física e sem sentimentos mais profundos evidentes no primeiro). Dave é conhecido por ter algum senso de covardia, mas também é conhecido por sua coragem e perseverança. No entanto, sua bravura, na maioria das vezes, acaba ficando com ele ou aqueles próximos a ele em perigo. Ele se recusa a matar pessoas, mas não hesita em feri-las seriamente. Ao longo da história, Dave evolui para um personagem mais frio e perigoso, mas mantém seus valores morais até certo ponto.

Plot overview[]

Kick-Ass[]

Origins[]

David Lizewski era um adolescente normal que era um fã dedicado de quadrinhos. Ele tinha alguns amigos, um pai solteiro amoroso, e uma queda por uma garota chamada Katie Deauxma, que o odiava e o considerava um perseguidor. Seu amor pelas histórias em quadrinhos o inspirou a se tornar um super-herói da vida real, comprando um fato de mergulho verde e passando por treinamento secreto.

One day, he spotted a trio vandalizing a brick wall, and attempted to stop their antics, donning his wetsuit and confronting them. Unfortunately, his attempt ended in his nerves being nigh-permanently damaged. In order to retain his secret identity, Dave hid away his costume before paramedics arrived, being found by the medics bare naked.

After telling his father he was mugged, Dave underwent intense physical rehabilitation. Dave then vowed to quit his heroism, but soon donned the wetsuit once again and continued to go on patrol. One fateful day, Dave was able to rescue a man from a group of violent Puerto Ricans, and the incident was recorded by an onlooker who uploaded his video onto Youtube, dubbing his video as "Kick-Ass," a name that Dave chose for his alter-ego.

In Dave's school, after claiming that he was mugged once again in order to cover up injuries sustained from the fight with the Puerto Ricans, rumors surfaced of him being a gigolo. Believing them, Katie Deauxma took a strange liking to Dave, and she adopted him as her "gay BFF." Although unwilling to be known as a homosexual, Dave nevertheless went along with this in an effort to spend time with Katie. After continuous patrol weakened Dave, his father provided him with a can of pepper spray for protection.

Ela então deixou Dave para se juntar a um homem mais velho chamado dse juntar a um homem mais velho chamado Big Daddy; depois disso, a dupla misteriosa então escapou da cena.

Dave then discovered that he had started a phenomenon which involved ordinary men and women donning costumes and fighting crime. One of them, named Red Mist, was gaining better publicity than Dave, a fact which constantly irritated the latter to the point of him actually inviting Red Mist to meet him in a certain alleyway and question him.

Dave discovered that Red Mist was, in fact, a fan of his. After which, Dave befriended Red Mist, and even rescued a cat in a burning building. Because of the rescue, the two gained public fame throughout the state. Dave was then confronted by Big Daddy and Hit-Girl, who blackmailed him into aiding their assault, along with Red Mist, on the crime boss John Genovese, lest they post his secret identity on the Internet.

Dave and Red Mist made their way to Big Daddy and Hit-Girl's hideout, where they discovered a group of gangsters, led by John Genovese, circling the duo, with Big Daddy mortally wounded and Hit-Girl weeping. As Kick-Ass looked on in utter disbelief, Red Mist unsheathed a gun and smashed the hilt onto Dave's head.

Death of Big Daddy[]

John revealed that Big Daddy and Hit-Girl have been repeatedly persecuting them by foiling their plots, & Red Mist, who was John's son, Chris, planned to dress up as a superhero in an effort to discover the whereabouts of Big Daddy and Hit-Girl, and much to his father's surprise, the plot worked.

John's men discovered a briefcase, and, after believing the case's contents to be money, tried to force Big Daddy to tell them the case's combination. Hit-Girl suddenly attacked the men, only to fall out of a window after being shot several times. Dave was then tortured by the men by having his testicles electrocuted.

Big Daddy revealed that he was a mere accountant who hated his life and wanted something more. His love for comics then drove him to become a real life superhero, and that he led attacks on Genovese mainly because "he needed a villain." Big Daddy's briefcase was then opened, and it was revealed that only vintage comic books were inside, and that they were used to fund for the equipment he used throughout his journeys.

John, his son, and a number of men left the room, and several men were left inside to kill both Dave and Big Daddy. The latter was killed first by being shot in the head.

Attack on John Genovese[]

After Big Daddy was killed, Dave spouted vulgar words at the men, egging them to "kill him using their fucking hands." The men gladly complied, but Dave's continuous taunts irritated them; this led to the men to attack him so brutally that the chair Dave was tied to was destroyed.

Dave then stood up, grasping one of the legs of the chair, and prepared to fight the men off. Just as Dave was about to get killed, Hit-Girl, who survived due to her wearing Kevlar, leapt from the shadows and rescued Dave, killing all the men.

Dave and Hit-Girl then invaded John Genovese's home, with Dave defeating Red Mist, and Hit-Girl murdering all of John's men, including John himself, whose testicles were shot down by Dave before his death.

After the attack, Hit-Girl, whose real name was Mindy Macready, quit being Hit-Girl and lived with her mother, who Big Daddy lied about being dead to keep in tune with his "origin." Dave, however, revealed to Katie that he is, in fact, straight and professed his love for her, ended up being brutally punched in the face by Katie's boyfriend. Also, upon coming home, he discovered his father "getting his rocks off" with a woman who was revealed to be Eddie Lomas's former girlfriend, Lucille.
