Re: Kick Ass 2 announcement coming soon - Part 1
In the comics, Red Mist was a sadistic monster and an ******* from the very beginning (he's a Millar character, they're all *******s). In the first film, he was a nerdy kid torn between wanting to please his dad and be his own man, but he was a decent kid overall. He genuinely liked KA and never wanted him dead. It wasn't until KA blew his dad up with a bazooka that he really flipped. He's kind of a tragic character in that regard and I was legitimately sad when he went bad. In the sequel, he's kind of a psychotic doofus in many ways, which makes him both scary and funny. His progression is much more in depth and interesting in the movies, as opposed to being bad from minute one like in the comic.
