"Katana Kid"

Brutal language and unflinching ultra-violence is nothing new to comics. But having it stem from a button-eyed, adorable little girl? Now THAT'S something else. Which is probably why Hit Girl from Kick-Ass has won the demented love of nerds worldwide.

Of course, the accolades are well-deserved. After all, I can't think of many preteen comic characters with a body count (or a potty-mouth) to match hers. I wonder if she'll ever get recruited by the Teen Titans. Isn't it about time for them to add some edginess to their crew?
