en wat leuke plaatjesave Lizewski, an otherwise ordinary New York City high school student and the child of Greg Willer, loving single father, takes his interest in comic books as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. He assembles a suit and mask, which he wears under his normal clothing, begins exercising, and practices things like walking on roofs, satisfying his ambitions for a time. He eventually seeks to fight crime, with his first attempt leading him to receive a severe beating and stabbing by thugs, followed by his wandering into the street and being hit by a car. He retains his secret identity, however, stripping off and hiding his costume before paramedics arrive.
Telling his father he was mugged, he undergoes intense physical rehabilitation, including four operations. He is released weeks later, and as soon as he is off crutches dons the suit once more and goes on patrol. When he saves a man from a beating, an onlooker catches the scene on a cellphone camera and uploads it to YouTube, turning Lizewski into an overnight sensation christened with the name Kick-Ass.
In school, the mugging excuse used to cover up his bruises spawns rumors Lizewski is a gay prostitute. Believing them, his longtime crush, Katie Deauxma, adopts him as a "gay best friend". Lizewski goes along with this in an effort to spend time with her. His father, worried about him, gives him a can of police-issue pepper-spray for protection.
As Kick-Ass, Lizewski sets up a MySpace account, so people can contact him for help. The first such request he investigates leads him to an apartment of violent lowlives who try to kill him. He is rescued by a costumed, sword-wielding young girl named Hit-Girl, who kills all the attackers and then leaves to join a grown man named Big Daddy. The two disregard Lizewski, who later learns that Kick-Ass has inadvertently inspired a subculture of people dressed in makeshift, original superhero costumes. Later, one such hero, the Red Mist, appears, and teams with Kick-Ass on street patrol. The two gain great public popularity after nearly being killed rescuing a cat from a burning building.
Kick Ass, at the behest of Big Daddy and Hit Girl, accompanies Red Mist to meet the duo at an abandoned warehouse to strategize the takedown of local drug kingpin John Genovese. There they find Big Daddy and Hit Girl captured, and Red Mist reveals himself as Genovese's son, who had orchestrated this ambush. The gang kills Big Daddy and tortures Kick Ass, but fails to kill Hit Girl, who escapes and returns to kill several of the gang members. Afterwards, Hit Girl kills John Genovese while Kick-Ass beats Red Mist into submission. Lizewski helps Hit Girl go back to a normal, calm life with her mother and stepfather, however Lizewski's own life is no better than before. He had told Katie Deauxma about him not being gay, and she shuts him out once again. When he comes home, he catches his father with Eddie Lomas' ex-girlfriend Lucille. The main story ends with the superhero who tried to fly at the start of the story catching the elevator to the top floor of a building. The epilogue has Red Mist swearing vengeance on Kick-Ass, setting the scene for Book Two.
