||Graphic novel by Mark Miller and John Romita Jr
||A geeky teenage boy decides to become a superhero, but is frequently beaten until he meets Hit Girl and Big Daddy who are conducting a war against the drug barons.
||Frequent violence with firearms and edged weapons, often carried out by a 10 year old girl. The hero is surprised to find himself on quite intimate terms with an attractive young woman, because she thinks he is gay. Lots of swearing.
||This weird superhero film does not, in my view, put a foot wrong, right up to the fantastic finale, which takes place to the accompaniment of Elvis Presley’s American Trilogy.
