Christopher Genovese (The Motherfucker)

Mother FuckerIn the first trailer of Kick Ass 2: Balls to the Wall we finally had a first sight of Chris D’Amico‘s new masked identity, The Motherfucker, played as in the first movie by Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Well, surely the character shows an incredible refinement. Anyway, the Mother Fucker has a costume quite different from the one created by his comicbook counterpart, Chris Genovese, but the story behind the boy’s vengeance against Kick-Ass, his father’s killer, seems more or less unchanged. Let’s see together who the Mother Fucker is in the comics…and beware, some spoilers may lie ahead.

When John Genovese ended up being killed by the alliance between Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl, and all his criminal empire fell into the clutches of his brother Ralphie, Chris found himself alone, constantly afraid of losing his life at the hands of the psycho kid who killed his father. Finally, a couple of months after John’s death, he decided he would have stepped out of the shadows and planned a vengeance. Chris went to his family’s boat house, where his mother lived (in the comics she’s unnamed, while in the movie she’s called motherfuckercomics1Angie). He explained her his plan, telling her he would have been something different from normal criminals, who couldn’t stand a chance against the new superheroes in town: he would have become the city’s first supervillain. Despite his mother telling him it was an insane plan and asking him to come back home, Chris, in his Red Mist costume, left, taking with him all of his comicbooks, two goons and his Mistmobile. He decided to commit his first supercrime (which would have been killing Kick-Ass, but he didn’t remember the hero’s secret identity anymore), which ended up being a robbery. Red Mist, along with his two goons, killed a shop owner, but something went wrong, and the sons of his victim ended up chasing him; while running from them, Chris was abandoned by his men, and was caught by Dr. Gravity and Insect Man, two new superheroes: he was severly beaten by both the heroes and the shop owner’s sons, until police arrived. Luckily enough, the policemen who arrested him were on Ralphie Genovese’s pay roll, and he was freed immediately after. Vic, a friend of John, led him to the airport, telling him to disappear for a while, and Chris decided he would have travelled the world like Batman did, paying old masters to be taught ancient martial arts, to become a scientist and a fighter, finally ready to face Kick-Ass.

motherfuckercomics2Well, Chris arrived in Asia, and paid some monk-like guys to train him in ancient martial arts, but he got tired soon enough of it. He believed that the masters were only interested in his money and weren’t actually teaching him anything; above all, becoming a martial artist was far too laborious and hard, much harder than Chris thought, and he decided for the easier way: to hire a badass bodyguard. Coming back home, he stopped in Eastern Europe, where he hired Mother Russia, a hulkling woman who became his right-hand (wo)man, and where he finally remembered Kick-Ass’ real name: Dave Lizewski. Back in town, Chris created a new criminal identity, the Motherfucker, and started a trip around the country to recruit the most vicious supercriminals ever seen…actually, he enlisted them on Twitter and FaceBook, never leaving New York, but, in a way or another, he managed to create his supervillains’ team, the Toxic Mega-Cunts. The city was now much a safer place, since Kick-Ass’ example gave birth to many superheroes; the most popular and powerful ones were gathered in Colonel Stars‘s group, Justice Forever. As the first act of the Toxic Mega-Cunts leader, Chris led an assault against Justice Forever’s hideout, killed Colonel Stars, and destroyed everything in there, leaving his new name painted on the walls. As second, he targeted Katie Deauxma, the girl Dave Lizewski loved; after asking two kids where she lived, and killing them when they answered him, he brought his team to Deauxma’s house, and, after killing Katie’s father, he interrogated and tortured her. When the girl told him she didn’t know anything about Kick-Ass, The Motherfucker raped her, then leaving her to his men. At last, following Mother Russia’s advice, he had Dave’s father killed, and attacked the hero during his funeral. Kick-Ass was saved at the last moment by Hit-Girl, but war was definitely declared.

Chris Genovese liked to think he has grown up since the last time he’s been in New York, but the reality is he’s the same cruel, spoiled child he’s always been, only a little bit more sadistic. As the Motherfucker, he doesn’t have any particular power or ability, but he leads a gang of dangerous men and women, and he has full access to his father’s fortune, which he uses to buy new weapons and gadgets for himself and the Toxic Mega-Cunts. A dangerous boy, Chris Genovese lives a comicbook adventure in which he’s finally taken up the role of the main villain.
