Kick-Ass 2: “It’s My Mom’s Costume”
Kick-Ass 2 baddie Christopher Mintz-Plasse explains his character’s choice of costume.
Since watching his dad being bazookaed out of a window, life has changed a bit for Chris D’Amico. In the two years since the first Kick-Ass, his mum has thrown out his Red Mist costume, and he’s taken on a new supervillain nom-de-plume as he forms his own Evil League Of Evil – the Mother F**ker. Of course, a new name requires a new costume – and this one is, er, not the sort of thing you’d expect to see a bad guy in the Marvel or DC Universes stepping out in.
“This is my mom’s costume,” Mintz-Plasse tells SFX. “My mom tossed away m Red Mist costume. Something happens to her and when I go through her stuff I find her fetish gear. My guard, played by John Leguizamo, wants to throw it away, but I look at it and I see something in it and make something out of it.”
