Would Hit Girl make a good sidekick/daughter to Batman?

I just read and watched Kick Ass again the other day, and I must say, Hit Girl and Big Daddy remind me of a much more "violent" style of Batman and Robin. Hit Girl is pretty much the only thing that keeps Big Daddy going in both the film and comic, where it's almost the same case with Robin (Dick Grayson in particular). I was wondering if Hit Girl would make a good sidekick to Bruce - whether it's the comic form or movie, hell, mash 'em together, because I think Bruce could serve as a better father figure to Mindy than Big Daddy if he could put up with ALL Robin's... Problem is, Hit Girl is a killing machine which breaks Batman one rule, but still - with a little practice, could Mindy be a good sidekick to Batman?

No. She's everything Batman is against, in a vigilantly.

Damian doesn't really kill many people. To my recollection, he's only ever killed Henri Ducard.

Ah I see. I've not read much Batman and robin, but what did he do to the Talon? I can remember but did he decapitate him?

If she didn't kill anyone and didn't have the mouth of a sailor, then yes. She can most certain hold her own against almost anyone .

She'd be a perfect The Dark Knight Returns Batman sidekick. Canon verse though she'd probably make a better Damian villain ;)

Talon's don't really count. They're already dead.

she's too interesting, violent, and rude to be related to batman. if they put hit-girl in batman she'd just be a girl in a robin outfit saying "what the fruit-rollups" or Holy Shinanigans Batman"

Too interesting? What, you think killing people makes you interesting?

I like this. I could see her as a sidekick, bumping heads with Damien and Batman trying to change her ways.

With hit-girl ya killing people does make her interesting (the whole young girl who's a badass killer is what makes her whole character) if you put her with batman then like i said before is a cool character who is now not doing anything that makes her funny or edgy. she would be again just a girl in a robin suit. no one would want to turn hit-girl into sorry to bump into you-girl.

Morgan Ducard actually lol,and there's Doctor Dedalus,the Spook not to mention potential others before he met Batman.

Nah. He killed people like it was nothing, but he was forced to stop just about as he was introduced. Not before he killed a guy, decapitated him and stuffed a grenade in his mouth and offering it as a present to his father though, lol.

Damian fills her role far more effectively. Still I'd prefer Hit Girl as Batman's sidekick to Steph any day.

Hit Girl and Big Daddy literally took the inspiration from Batman. So....

Hit-Girl is one of my favourite comic book characters, but I don't know if she would fit in with Batman. She does believe in protecting the innocent but she is really brutal on criminals. Maybe if she learned to control her violence then possibly.

Batman wouldn't have the patience to deal with her, she's just too out of control and willing to do whatever it takes. I could see many a long shouting matches where at the end Bruce walks away with a headache and wondering if it is even worth it.
