Defendor is probably the sweetest superhero movie ever made. Woody Harrelson plays Arthur Poppington a nice man who sees the world through childlike eyes and wants to make it a better place, and for him that means donning the costume of Defendor and offering battle to the forces of evil. Basically this movie is if Charly from "Flowers For Algernon" decided to fight crime. The supporting cast is fantastic with Kat Dennings playing the hooker who befriends him and Elias Koteas as the nasty crooked cop who stands in his way. Highly recommended.

How does it stack up?
I haven't see Kick-Ass but just going by the trailer I'd say Kick-Ass is the action-comedy goofball type while Defendor has comic elements but it's more loaded with heart and in a more realistic world..
