‘Kick-Ass’ Comic Vs. ‘Kick-Ass’ Movie: How Do They Compare?

While it’s no secret that Matthew Vaughn’s “Kick-Ass” movie diverges at points from Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.’s comic book series (with the comic creators’ blessing), fans should be excited to know that much of the film does indeed stay true to its source material. In fact, the film is so faithful to the comic at times that we felt inspired to show you some of our favorite comic-to-film moments.

We went through the official “Kick-Ass” trailers and clips here on MTV.com, found the corresponding scenes in their comic counterpart, then put everything together in a mash-up video that offers a great indication of just how closely Vaughn followed the comic when bringing “Kick-Ass” to life.
