With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to retire-leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes.

Synopsis

Synopsis: The film opens with Dave Lizewski (Kick Ass) and Mindy Macready (Hit Girl) standing opposite one another in an abandoned gravel pit. Mindy shoots Dave in the chest with a small handgun, as Big Daddy did to Hit Girl in the first Kick Ass movie. He is wearing a bulletproof vest, and so he gets up, unharmed. She then shoots him in the back with a much larger revolver, despite his protests. Dave Lizewski narrates as he tells us this is part of the way into the story, and then the film flashes back, and shows Mindy being dropped off at high school by Marcus, the best friend of her father, Damon (Big Daddy), who adopted her after [SPOILER] Big Daddy died in the previous film. [SPOILER END]Instead of going into school, she waits outside and then catches a cab to a safe house where she trains as Hit Girl all day. The narrator (Dave Lizewski) explains how she hacked the school website to give herself the perfect attendance award, as she has been skipping school since she started there.

The film then cuts to the house of Chris D’Amico, where he is arguing with his mother about her throwing away his Red Mist costume. She gets in a tanning bed, and he kicks it several times in anger until he accidentally breaks it, killing his mother, who is inside. He inherits all the money that his family owns, and he finds 2 polished handguns and a black leather S&M costume that belonged to his mum. He dresses up in the costume, and holding the pistols, declares himself as a supervillain, ‘The Motherf*cker’ to his bodyguard, Javier. The film cuts back to the school where Dave talks to Mindy as she waits for a taxi. He asks her to train him, and she agrees, and takes him to the safe house, where they train. Later, Marcus confronts Mindy, as she was not present in school to collect her perfect attendance award, so he followed her and saw her getting into a taxi with a boy. She says she went to the mall with him and promises not to skip school again, however she keeps training Dave during school. After extensive training, Mindy tests Dave’s new fighting skills by sending him into a rough neighbourhood dressed in expensive clothes. 4 men follow him into an alley, and he attempts to fight them all single handed. He eventually fails, but Mindy steps in and beats up the criminals. She cuts off the hand of one man, and then flees across the rooftop as the police turn up. Dave explains that she rescued him. Mindy receives a call from Marcus, who is still a police officer, wondering why she was not at school. She says that she is at home sick, and he tells her that he is almost home. He turns on the siren on his car, and she uncovers a purple motorbike, and they race home. Mindy manages to get home first, jumps in bed, and pulls the blankets up as Marcus walks in, but he notices blood and realises that she has been fighting crime. He tells her that her dad was wrong to deprive her of her childhood, and she promises not to be Hit-Girl any more. The next day, Mindy does not turn up for training with Dave, and so he confronts her in school, and she tells him that it’s over, in front of his girlfriend, Katie Deauxma. It looks to them like he has been dating Mindy, who is younger than him, behind Katie Deuxma’s back. Katie breaks up with him, and tells him that she has been seeing another guy anyway.

Kick Ass then hits the streets again, on his own, until he teams up with a fellow hero, Dr Gravity (Donald Faison), who says he is a physics professor, but is really doing an English major.Meanwhile the Motherf*cker commits his first act of evil. Javier drives him to a shop where he robs the till, hoping to be seen on CCTV cameras, and put on YouTube to gain publicity. However, the store has no cameras, and an old man infuriates him, causing him get angry and start shooting randomly around the shop. He runs out to the car and escapes.Mindy becomes friends with the popular school girls, and goes to the most popular girl, Brookes, house for a slumber party. They discuss Mindy, and boys, and then watch the music video Carry You, by Union J, and they all have a delightful time.Dr Gravity introduces Kick Ass to a superhero team, Justice Forever, lead by Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), a born again Christian, formerly a mob enforcer. The team consists of Night Bitch, Insect Man, Remembering Tommy, Kick Ass, Colonel Stars and Stripes, and Battle Guy, who turns out to be Marty, Kick Ass’s friend.

The Motherf*cker asks his bodyguard to put out the word that he is building an evil army, and uses racial stereotypes ("archetypes") to name the super villains – Black Death, The Tumour, Genghis Carnage, and Mother Russia are the first to join his team, called the Toxic Mega-C*nts. He buys a warehouse to use as his lair, and installs a shark tank that he plans to kill Kick Ass with.Meanwhile, Mindy goes to Varsity dance training with Brooke, the dance team captain, and outperforms her, to Brooke’s embarrassment and anger.Justice Forever continues to meet and the members are trained to fight by Colonel Stars and Stripes. Dave begs Mindy to join, but she refuses, and agrees to go on a date with a jock named Simon.Justice Forever take on their first big job, shutting down an illegal brothel run by Jimmy Kim. They beat up the 6 gangsters inside, and give the prostitutes $50,000, before freeing them. Kick Ass begins a sexual relationship with Knight Bitch afterwards. Dave and Marty share their secret with Todd, whom they have been ignoring recently, and invite him to join Justice Forever. However they are consistently mean to him, so Todd joins the Toxic Mega Cunts instead.Mindy goes on her date with Simon, but it is a setup, and she is left in the woods alone as revenge by Brooke, for outshining her. Mindy walks to Dave’s house, and climbs into his bedroom, and he comforts her, and tells her to beat the mean girls at their own game. She goes into school the next day, and humiliates the girls by using a crowd control device – the sick stick – on them that causes spontaneous diarrhoea and vomiting.

Dave’s dad finds Dave’s Kick Ass costume, and they argue, so Dave leaves, and stays at Marty’s house. Chris D’Amico’s uncle, who runs the family business, and is in prison, is worried by Chris’s antics as The Motherf*cker, and meets him in prison. He has Chris’s bodyguard, Javier, killed while Chris listens, in order to scare him, but it serves to motivate Chris further. The gang of super-villains finds the Justice Forever headquarters, and Mother Russia decapitates Colonel Stars and Stripes. They then find Night Bitch, and beat her up. Mother Russia kills 10 police officers, and they flee the scene. This causes the police to crack down on costumed vigilantes, and they trace the IP address of all the superheroes, and arrest them. Dave’s father says that he is Kick Ass, and is imprisoned by the police. Todd tells the Motherf*cker that the man is Dave’s father, and so Mr Lizewski is killed in prison, and a picture of his body is sent to Dave’s phone. The funeral is a few days later, and Justice Forever, and Mindy attend, and police officers stand guard to prevent the super-villains making an appearance. They do attack, however, grabbing Kick Ass, and driving off in a van, back to their headquarters. Mindy steals a cops gun, and clings to the roof of the van, and shoots all the occupants, and forces the driver to pull over and tell them where the Supervillain lair is. Mindy and Dave go to the safe house and gear up, and uses Twitter to invite all the Superheroes in the city to unite and convene to the Supervillain lair for an epic final battle. They turn up at the Toxic Mega C*nts’ headquarters, and a huge brawl ensues. Mindy fights Mother Russia, whom she is physically outmatched by, but she outsmarts the former KGB agent, tricking her into injecting Hit Girl with an adrenaline shot, that gives her the energy to kill Mother Russia with broken glass. Kick Ass fights The Motherf*cker on the roof, where the leader of the super-villains falls through a skylight. Kick Ass tries to save him, but he refuses Kick Ass’s help, and falls into the shark tank. As he realises he is still alive, the shark attacks him, and rips him apart. The superheroes win the battle, and restrain the Supervillains. The Justice Forever team assemble on the roof, and flee before the police arrive. Mindy, however, is wanted for the murder of the 6 men in the van, with the cop’s gun, so not wanting to trouble Marcus with a police inquiry, she leaves town on her motorbike, kissing Dave before she leaves. She rides across the Brooklyn Bridge as the screen fades to black and the credits roll.

There is a scene after the credits that shows Chris D’Amico in hospital under police guard, disfigured, missing both legs. He says his d*ck was bitten off, and he tries to reach his drink, but fails.
