COMICS: Easter Egg In KICK-ASS 3 Finale Indicates That...It Was All A [SPOILER]?!
The amazing finale to Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s Kick-Ass finally went on sale earlier this week, and while we won't spoil the fate of any of the characters for you, we have spotted one Easter Egg which is definitely worth sharing! Near the end of Kick-Ass 3 #8, there's a scene with Dave and his girlfriend Val (a nurse) in the hospital. However, as you can see from the images below, Dave Lizewski's name is written on the list of patients in the ICU unit, something which makes little sense considering the fact that he's physically fine for the most part here.
Mark Millar (MPH) and John Romita Jr. (Superman) brought Kick-Ass to an end this week, but hidden in the finale are a few Easter Eggs which have left us wondering whether the writer is trying to tell us all that the events of the past few volumes have all been just a [SPOILER]...
We also see in the background of another panel a man standing over his son's bed. Look familiar? If you go back and read through the second issue of the first volume of Kick-Ass, you'll see that it's an exact recreation of a scene from the opening of that comic when Dave's (now DEAD) father visits him after he was stabbed and hit by a car following his first attempt at fighting crime as Kick-Ass!
So, what does this mean for the series? Well, speculation is now running rampant that the events of everything from issue #2 onwards have all been a hallucination brought on as a result of Dave's coma. His girlfriend being a nurse is no coincidence, as it could just be that she's the one who changes his bedpan every day! It's all speculation of course, and as the final few pages reveal how the world of Kick-Ass is connected to the likes of Nemesis and Superior, it would be a pretty big shock if this and every other Millarworld title are all just a dream thought up by a comatose kid who was foolish enough to try and be a superhero. Based on what we see here though, that could just the the case! What do you guys think? Share your thoughts and theories below...
