Kick-Ass 2 #7

Next up, the finale to the second Kick Ass book... Let's see if this one has a decisive ending or if Mark Millar is planning a third book/movie...

Kick-Ass 2 #7(of 7):

Summary: The heroes and villains square off in Times Square and naturally Mother Russia squares off with Hit Girl while Kick-Ass gets his arch-nemesis, the Mother-Fucker. Mother Russia beats the HELL out of Hit Girl, until she is momentarily distracted by some random heroes, at which point Hit Girl kills and decapitates Mother Russia. Meanwhile, Kick-Ass chases the cowardly Mother-Fucker around and the two eventually face off on the rooftop of a building. The two fight for a bit and Kick-Ass ends up knocking the Mother-Fucker off the rooftop(!). Kick-Ass is horrified that he killed somebody, at least until the Mother-Fucker... um, all fucked up from the fall, begs Kick-Ass to call an ambulance for him since he was broken and probably paralyzed and all. The Mother-Fucker promises not to tell anybody that Kick-Ass dumped him off the roof, and Kick-Ass ends up calling the fuzz for help. The cops find the Mother-Fucker's broken body and also see Kick-Ass(who is an idiot) staring off the rooftop. Hit Girl manages to cause a distraction by stealing a cop car, which allows Kick-Ass to escape. As for Hit Girl, she ends up crashing the squad car after swerving to avoid an angry police detective. This series ends with the cops cuffing Hit Girl while a crowd of people cheer her on.

Thoughts: Meh. This was a surprisingly lackluster final issue here... But then, how could this one really end in a satisfying way? Honestly, I can't think of a scenario that I wouldn't dislike... The Mother-Fucker gets arrested after a beating from Kick-Ass? I guess that could have worked. As it is, the Mother-Fucker is out of the picture, the awesome Mother Russia is dead(and she really had some fantastic lines in this issue), Hit Girl is locked up and Kick-Ass is... um, with his father dead and all, I don't know what he is. There really wasn't any closure here, which makes me think that Millar IS planning a third Kick-Ass, and for the life of me I can't figure out what Kick-Ass 3 will be about...

Score: 7 out of 10.
kick-ass 2 #7
That's gonna leave a mark...


  1. a Hell of a better ending than the first one had

  2. To be honest with ya, I hardly even remember how the first one ended...

  3. I know they are making a Hit-Girl spinoff.

  4. Ah... THAT actually makes a TON of sense given the end of this one. There seems to be WAY more to be done with Hit-Girl as opposed to Kick-Ass.
