This Spoils the Ending
In the Graphic Novel In the Movie
   When Kick-Ass is being tortured he has a car battery hooked up to his testes and is shocked extensively. He gets beaten up and the attack is broadcast on the internet.
   Big Daddy and Hit Girl follow Kick-Ass to his home. They track him to his home by re-routing his IP address and tracing a discharge from his taser.
   Kick-Ass finds Red Mist and beats him up using two wooden boards. Hit Girl kills everyone. Kick-Ass uses a jetpack fitted with machine guns to kill several people along with Hit Girl.
   Big Daddy is not actually an ex-cop in the comics, as he admits to Genovese and Dave shortly before his death. He was in fact an accountant who, much like Dave, fantasized about being a superhero. He made up a fake history of himself and lied that he was an ex-cop with a personal vendetta against John Genovese. Big Daddy is a former Cop who was framed as a drug dealer. This is why he was thrown off the force.
   Big Daddy quizzes Hit Girl on a communication device whilst she is killing gangsters in a bar, with him providing over-watch with a sniper rifle. He quizzes Hit Girl in the armory while she plays with her new knife.
