Like Zombieland, Kick-Ass stars an awkward teenager who gets mixed up in an ever more violent situation. However, unlike Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) from Zombieland, Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson) does not get caught up in the end of the world: he causes his own problems. Dave is kind of a nobody. He isn't a great athlete, and he isn't good at being a geek. Like most kids his age, he "simply exists," trying to make it through his days without hassle.
