Mindy McCready has mastered a hundred ways to kill a man. Her father, the super hero known as Big Daddy, made sure of that. She's used her skills to wipe out mobsters, super villains and more. So why does facing the popular girls at middle school feel like her toughest challenge yet? With Big Daddy now gone, Hit-Girl tries her hardest to make good on a "normal" life with her mom and stepdad. So she strikes a deal with fl edgling super hero Kick-Ass: She'll train him to stay alive, if he'll teach her how to fi t in with the other girls at school. But with a new maffi a don on the rise, being normal may just have to wait. Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. pull back the curtain on Hit-Girl, the world's deadliest 12-year-old, in this prelude to KICK-ASS 2!

The first part of the Kick-Ass sequel! Hit-Girl spins off into her own blood-soaked saga! Mindy McCready tries to settle into life as a regular school-girl, but wants nothing more to be dispensing hot justice to the scum of New York City. Her mother thinks she's doing her homework, but in reality she's taken Kick-Ass on as her sidekick and training him up to punch, shoot and stab ... just like Daddy would have wanted. And in return, Kick-Ass is helping her learn to survive middle school - without spilling anyone's blood. But when Kick-Ass gets benched, leaving Mindy to take on the mafia solo, even Hit-Girl may be in over her head. Meanwhile, Red Mist pursues his goal of becoming a super-villain ... and faces a final test of his own.
