Hit-Girl's story arc continues where it left off in Kick-Ass (2010), where she starts her new life in highschool while living life outside with her new guardian Marcus Williams. Mindy leads her new life by adopting a more mildmannered persona in contrast to her more aggressive demeanor. While, her initial attempts prove successful she quickly dissolves her efforts, and rises up to her true superhero identity Hit-Girl.
Behind the ScenesEdit
- According to a passage In Mark Millar's "Kick-Ass: Creating the Comic, and the Movie" he comments on his original idea of for the Kick-Ass comics, "The idea that I had originally was a book about Big-Daddy and Hit-Girl. It was called Kick-Ass -- after going through a few different anmes -- and I wrote the first issue entirely starring Big Daddy and Hit-Girl. But there was something about it; it was good, but it was very hard to identify with the main characters, because they were so extreme. No reader was going to be like Hit-Girl or like Big Daddy. I really liked it though, so I sat with it for months and I kept looking at it, and I knew I wanted it to influence a whole generation of real life superheroes via MySpace and YouTube and all that, but it just wasn't right, I knew there was something wrong. So what I did -- which is something I never do -- is I just scrapped the issue, and then started again with a character that we could identify with, bringing Big Daddy and Hit-Girl into a little bit later. So, essentially, in terms of the hero's journey, you start with the naive Luke Skywalker guy, who everyone can identify with, and then you meet Han Solo and Ben Kenobi and everyone, and the Jedi Knights suddenly make sense, because you're seeing it through the eyes of a newcomer." page 15, [Mark Millar's Kick-Ass Creating the comic Making the Movie]. This indicates, that Hit-Girl was originally suppose to be main protagonist of the Kick-Ass comics. There's a popular trend indicating that Hit-Girl stole the limelight in Kick-Ass (2010) because of her appeal, and extreme vulgar nature in contrast to Kick-Ass's newcomer status. In the upcoming Kick-Ass 2 (2013) film, the plot seems to focus/centralize largely on Hit-Girl's story arc trying to lead a normal life. Hit-Girl's popularity in the Kick-Ass franchise, and the Hit-Girl centric story arc for both the comic, and film versions of Kick-Ass 2, have resulted her to become the unofficial "main" character, despite Mark Millar's initial revision.
