Most of the material will come from Mark Millar's comic book series. Huge spoilers at the ending of Kick Ass 2, them being quite different than the comics ending. In the comic Hit Girl is locked up in prison. The post credit scene of Kick Ass 2 shows Chris in the hospital with both his legs gone while in the comic he has all his limbs. Issues 1 and 2 of the Kick Ass 3 comic is already available. The comic centers on Justice Forever tying to stage a prison break for Hit Girl only to wimp out and run away. With high school done, Marty aka Battle Guy went off to Harvard while Dave aka Kick Ass and Todd aka Ass Kicker end up working at a burger joint.
