- I always wondered why nobody did it before me. I mean, all those comic book movies and television shows, you'd think at least one eccentric loner would have stitched himself a costume. Is everyday life really so exciting? Are schools and offices really so thrilling that I'm the only one who ever fantasized about this? C'mon. Be honest with yourself. We all planned to be a superhero at some point in our lives.

Synopsis for "Kick-Ass"
Dave Lizewski, regular high school kid being raised by a widower father, takes it upon himself to become a real life superhero. After getting together a suit and doing some training he confronts his first criminals, which doesn't go well for him.
- This issue was dedicated to Paul James Downie.
- Throughout the issue Dave and his friends talk about (Marvel owned) comic properties, including the appearance of Galactus in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, the debate over organic versus engineered webbing in the Spider-Man films, and Joss Whedon's run on Astonishing X-Men Vol 3--which Lizewski says makes his "Buffy look like shit."
