Hit Girl: One of the Coolest Heroines Who Can Really Kick Ass


Hit Girl played by Chloe Moretz in the film Kick Ass is one of the best super heroines that I have ever had the pleasure of watching on screen. Although she does not have any special powers, she is a trained assassin and has an amazing mastery of knifes in combat. She was trained by her father Big Daddy, who was played in the film by Nicholas Cage. 

When the movie was first released it created a lot of buzz because the character Hit Girl was very controversial amongst a group of parents who thought it was wildly inappropriate for a tween girl to be cursing like a "truck driver" and running around murdering people without an ounce of remorse. What they do not see is the big picture, sure killing people is not exactly the most heroic thing, but because of Hit Girl and other equally controversial young femme fatales like Hannah young girls can look at this gals as empowering and they can identify with them because they are as young as them .


  1. I agree that Hit Girl is one of the best superheroines! So what if she curses like a sailor. Just because she is a girl doesn't mean she isn't as tough as any other man, and the language is just one of the ways the movie tries to show it.

  2. Wow! I had totally forgotten about her! I really admire that character. She completely breaks the stigma of women superheroes. I think the movie in general does this because the fact that a skinny kid can kick some ass is not seen very often. Anyway, Hit Girl is so awesome! I think that her cursing further illustrates the point that she's no ordinary character - she has personality! My favorite thing is how young she is because it shows that even young kids are powerful and capable of making a difference.

  3. I totally agree, in Kick Ass she was just something that I had never seen before, she was a scrawny little girl who could kick ass.
