For those of you living under a rock, Kick-Ass is an amazing movie by director Mathew Vaughn. It’s based on the superhero brainchild of writer Mark Millar and artist John Romita Jr, and features a unique take on superheroes. The game will be heading to the PlayStation Network this Thursday, and it’s a cross between the comics and the movie.
You can play the role of Kick-Ass, a dorky high school kid who is sick of seeing people around him doing nothing to stop crimes. You can also play as Hit Girl, a 90-pound powderkeg of badness. Hit Girl has been trained by her father (Big Daddy — also playable) to be a ruthlessly effective mercenary and assassin.
