Yeah...Millar gets off on using that word as a female codename. It was also the name of Peter Parker's long-lost granddaughter in 'Old Man Logan' - she called herself "Spider-Bitch" and had a costume incorporating Spidey's eyes over her breasts.

He's a dirty little Scot.

wasn't it just a guard calling her that, to degrade and humiliate her?
and my copy of the old man logan trade got to be broken, because the only eyes i see on her costume are where they belong, on the mask.

Hah. Suppose I was wrong on that second one.

But, yeah, he definitely referred to her by that name all throughout interviews, and I can't recall her being referred to by any other name in the series.

Even Better: Red Mist has become a supervillain, changing his costume, and going with the name "Motherfucker" and having a gang called the Cunts.

I don't know--I think the worst out of those is Battle Guy. At least "Night Bitch" has the slight possibility of being said with fear, but Battle Guy's so vague and bland that NO ONE will remember that.

In that not-quite-Don-Quixote way, it's likely that all of these origins are fake. This is really a meeting of the Had Nothing Better To Do club.

This is entirly too positive on his fanbase for Millar. 5 bucks says one of them is a pedophile.

Well, whatever he is I doubt he's very effective at it. Eyeholes are a commodity that seems to be undervalued around where he lives.

Eh, the design is basically ripped off from classic Spidey villain the Black Tarantula. He looks like Miguel after starving himself for half a year.

Also, I might have just mis-read my Biology textbooks, but isn't one of the definite, empirical features that classify a creature as an 'insect' the fact that it has SIX legs, not EIGHT?

Either an artist screw-up (highly illogical), or yet another one of these clowns is being made to look pathetic just in the act of trying.

A supposed cop who dresses up so he can do all the stuff he can't in his "day job" sets off my alarm bells, and I'm not Mark "and I'll have the SHIELD guy randomly whack a child in the face with a rifle butt because he was there" Millar.

Hate to say it, but between this issue and the whole run of Superior, I've actually started to like Millar again.

I know it'll all end in rape, but for now, it's actually pretty fun.

I enjoy Superior a whole lot,
but for some reason, Kick Ass comes off so much more assholish to me. Maybe it's just me, but even if I enjoyed the movie, Kick Ass itself does little to appeal.

Kick-Ass 2 is actually a lot better than the first one, judging from the one issue of Kick-Ass 2 that I've read. It's a lot less mean spirited than the first series.

I'm sorry, but really :| The art didn't bother me until I saw Insect man's head, and the kid's story about his parents... Yeah okay I thought they'd be angrier about the whole thing.

So I'm just gonna ask straight out: Who died? Became evil? Got raped? Etc. Or is this the last safe issue before everyone is brutalized (including the dog)?

Is Red Mist back and kicking puppies?

If that was actually her slogan, I'd have more respect for Millar.

Only a a little, mind you.

How could I have ever doubted his genius? Did I really think that he was just a cynical hack that recycled tired old tropes (including his own work) to a lowest-common-denominator audience? We should feel lucky that we live at the same time as him! Fuck Alan Moore, man, this dude is the One True God of Comics!

You know what I actually liked about the first one? Besides the fact that it was funny in the absurd way, it showed that (even if it wasn't much without ridiculous help) Super-Heroing around can at least lead to some success, even if it is only stopping a guy from getting beaten up. You show me that little success without something absenly horrible, and I'll buy this book, Millar.
