The violence with no restraint mini series comes to a ballbusting conclusion. Today I will be reviewing Kick-Ass 2 #7. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think
Kick-Ass 2 #7
Spoiler Alert! (you were warned)
So let’s talk about the book. The gloves are off. The heroes and villains have arrived. Let the battle begin. After some back and forth insults between Red Mist and Kick-Ass, the war begins. Everyone is battling everyone. Hit Girl throws down with Mother Russia, but unfortunately for her, Mother Russia is a real fighter with years of training and experience. She easily disarms Hit Girl and beats her down. She is about to kill her when a distraction causes Mother Russia to look away. This gives Hit Girl an opportunity to sucker stab her to a bloody mess. The heroes are winning. However, when the cops arrive, they just arrest anyone in a costume because to them, they are all guilty. Meanwhile, Kick Ass is beating the shit out of Red Mist but Red runs away when the cops show up. Kick Ass follows him and after some more fighting, he pushes Red Mist off of a building. The cops arrive and see Kick Ass but Hit Girl sacrifices herself to save him. After a brief car chase, Hit Girl is caught and hauled off to jail along with the other heroes in costumes. All to the sound of cheering from the civilians who watched the fight and knew the cops were wrong. And that’s the book.
So let’s talk opinions. WOW! What an incredible ending to what has to be one of the most violent, no holds barred, no moral code respected comic series of all time. I loved it. While this issue wasn’t as gross and offensive as some of the earlier issues, it was still filled with plenty of blood, gore and violence. I actually respect Mark Millar a lot more after reading this issue. He actually took the fanboy experience to a new high here. He really showed us what would happen, in reality, if a no name schmuck took it upon himself to get into a costume and fight crime. He escalated that realism by showing what the result of a gang war would be. The cops did their job. Period. I don’t care who the good guys or the bad guys are. These are idiots on pajamas becoming vigilantes. They were fighting in the streets and they got arrested. Excellent work. Also, the battle between Mother Russia and Hit Girl was both phenomenal and a bit surprising. I was positive that Mr. Millar would let Hit Girl dominate the entire battle. I loved that he added real life to this fight as well. Mother Russia is a trained mercenary who used to protect the president, or something. Some little child with a few knives should be absolutely no match for her. I loved that beating. That beating alone should pound a bit of reality into any moron out there who read this comic and even harbored a thought of trying out the super hero thing for themselves. It taught a very valuable lesson. No matter how much of a bad ass tough person you think you are, there is always someone out there more dangerous than you. Still, the way that Hit Girl ended the battle was gruesome and super cool. I really wish, with all of my being, that Romita Jr. wasn’t the one drawing this series. If anyone who knew how to draw distinguishable individual characters had drawn this series, it would be iconic. Without color, there would be no way to identify who is who. But wishes are not always granted and I have to deal with the disapointment in the art by loving the writing even more. I can’t wait to see what’s next. I feel that Red Mist will be back eventually and that Dave will be putting the green suit on to face him in battle. The Hit Girl limited series should be awesome too. That’s my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.
