Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. Instead of a year-old white boy from New York, this rebooted Kick-Ass follows Patience Lee, a Black veteran and mother as she decides to put on a costume and fight some bad guys. The original Kick-Ass raised the question of what superheroes would look like in the real world, where not everyone is a superpowered alien or mutant. Dave Lizewski was a normal guy who got the idea to put on the suit because of comic books. Patience Lee comes at it from a different direction: she needs money. In addition to that, he left her with thousands of dollars of his debt. So, after thinking about her money troubles and her skillset, making a list of potential jobs and actions, she does the reasonable thing and plans a heist.
