Hit-Girl # 4 - Mark Millar

Postby LOLtron » Thu Dec 20, 2012 6:01 pm


Even without Kick-Ass’s help, Hit-Girl continues to wreak havoc in the underworld. She has targeted the mafia, and she’s relentless. Mr. Genovese, the big boss, loses millions of dollars as his clandestine transactions are routinely intercepted by a 12-year-old girl more lethal than anyone else in the world.

Meanwhile, after torturing the most popular girl in school, Mindy is finally welcomed by all girls. Suddenly, they all want to sit next to her during lunch and Mindy is the one that gets to decide who deserves the privilege of her company. Dave Lizewski is still recovering after breaking his arm, and that’s when he gets a mysterious message sent by his nemesis, Red Mist. 

Red Mist tells him that he has been training in Asia with the best martial arts experts that money can buy (or hire), and he compares himself to Bruce Wayne before turning into Batman; he warns Dave about his fighting abilities that have now increased beyond all measure. However, what Red Mist doesn’t know is that his masters are only interested in the thousands of dollars he has been paying them, and instead of teaching him Kung Fu secrets they simply make him do weird exercises that look cool but that have no real purpose. This is an important subplot, as Red Mist’s fighting abilities will be tested on his final confrontation with Kick-Ass in the second volume of the series. 



There are some really funny references to pop culture, movies (such as “Batman Begins”) and even comics, as Red Mist tells Dave to enjoy DC’s relaunch in the little time he has left (ironically, this relaunch is no longer bringing joy to DC, as their sales continue to decline, but I doubt Millar has used these line to make fun of the Distinguished Competition).

Another subplot that will have greater repercussions in the second volume is the fact that Mindy’s stepfather finds out she has been killing dozens of mobsters in recent weeks, and forbids her to continue acting as Hit-Girl. Now Mindy will have to do everything she can to escape from home if she wants to keep fighting against crime, but clearly her stepfather is smart enough to keep an eye on her, after all, he is a cop.

Incluso sin la ayuda de Kick-Ass, Hit-Girl continúa agrediendo al bajo mundo. Su blanco es la mafia, y ella es implacable. Mr. Genovese, el gran jefe, pierde millones de dólares cuando sus transacciones son interceptadas rutinariamente por una niña de 12 años realmente letal.

Mientras tanto, después de torturar a la chica más popular del colegio, Mindy por fin es bien recibida por todas las chicas. De pronto, todas ellas quieren sentarse a su lado a la hora del almuerzo, y es Mindy la que debe decidir quiénes merecen el privilegio de su compañía. Dave Lizewski aún se está recuperando después de romperse el brazo, y ahí es cuando recibe un misterioso mensaje enviado por su némesis Red Mist. 

Red Mist le dice que ha estado entrenando en Asia con los mejores expertos en artes marciales que el dinero puede comprar (o alquilar), y se compara a sí mismo con Bruce Wayne antes de convertirse en Batman; advierte a Dave sobre sus habilidades de lucha que ahora se han incrementado. Sin embargo, lo que Red Mist no sabe es que sus maestros sólo están interesados en los miles de dólares que él está pagando, y en vez de enseñarles los secretos del Kung Fu lo fuerzan a hacer raros ejercicios que se ven alucinantes pero que en realidad no tienen ningún propósito. Este es un sub-argumento importante ya que las habilidades de pelea de Red Mist serán puestas a prueba en la confrontación final con Kick-Ass en el segundo volumen de la serie. 

Hay algunas referencias muy divertidas sobre la cultura pop, películas (como “Batman Begins”) e incluso cómics, cuando Red Mist le dice a Dave que disfrute el relanzamiento de DC mientras pueda (irónicamente, este relanzamiento ya no resulta un disfrute para DC, y es que sus ventas continúan cayendo, pero dudo que Millar haya usado esta frase para burlarse de la Distinguida Competencia).

Otro sub-argumento que tendrá mayores repercusiones en el segundo volumen es el hecho que el padrastro de Mindy descubre que ella ha estado matando a docenas de mafiosos en las últimas semanas, y le prohíbe continuar actuando como Hit-Girl, Ahora Mindy tendrá que hacer todo lo que pueda para escapar de casa si es que quiere seguir luchando contra el crimen, pero su padrastro sabe que debe vigilarla, después de todo, él es un policía.

Ari, a suggestion to help make it easier to read this: try Editing this from the Front Page, highlight the text then change the text color to black.

Cool. I was going to do it but didn't know if I should edit his article.

Thanks for the suggestion. I thought I had to be a mod like GHERU to fix it.
