Listen to the story.

We talk with John Romita, Jr., co-creator of the "Kick-Ass" comic book series, and regular illustrator on "Daredevil," "Iron Man," "Wolverine," and "Spider Man." Romita tells us how it feels to see his characters make the transition from print to screen; what it was like producing "Kick-Ass" and directing its animated flashback scene; and why fans seem to identify so strongly with the self-made superheroes Hit-Girl, Red Mist, Big Daddy, and, of course, Kick-Ass. And we want to know, If you could be any super hero, who would it be?
