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 .
