The Red Mist was another teenager inspired to become a masked hero because of Kick-Ass. But his cooler appearance, tricked out sports car, and the fact that he stopped Russian drug dealers stole some of Kick-Ass' fandom. And though Kick-Ass tried to talk to and force Red Mist into giving up his superhero identity, he quickly befriends him.
When Kick -Ass was visited by Hit-Girl and Big Daddy, Red Mist was reluctant to join their team. Both friends were on their way to meet Hit-Girl and her father in their headquarters ready to make a counter offer, but instead found a heavily wounded Big Daddy pleading for help at the hands of Johnny G. At that moment, Red Mist was exposed as not only a traitor who set up the would be heroes, but also the son of Johnny G.
Major Story Arcs
At the end of the first arc of Kick-Ass, Red Mist is seen in his new costume writing Kick-Ass a death note while saying, "... wait till they get a load of ME." a line from the Joker in the 1989 batman movie.

Weapons and Equipment
Since The Red Mist is a character based in a real world scenario, he does not have any super powers or mutant abilities. However, being the son of a crime boss he has enough money to buy just about anything, including weapons, drugs, and amazing cars. And so far the only weapon we've seen him use is a hand gun.
Besides every real world's hero's necessity, a cell phone for keeping up to date with local emergencies, The Red Mist also uses weed to calm his nerves before patrol.
Tricked out race car with "Mist" written across the front window. No specifics are given in the comics as to how it has been upgraded.
Portrayed by Christopher Mintz Plasse, Red Mist is Chris D'Amico, son of Frank D-Amico instead of Chris Genovese. His real life character, Chris, is given much more depth than in the comics, showing how the idea to become The Red Mist was his way of proving to his father that he is ready to be part of the family business. And with costume redesign comes character redesign. Not only is the movie version of Chris portrayed as more of a weak comic book nerd, Red Mist himself originally wants to show mercy to Kick-Ass by letting him go when they capture Big Daddy. Though that view quickly changes after his father is killed by Kick-Ass. He later swears his revenge on him, while wearing his new super villain costume.
