Comic-Con may be over but there are still plenty of superheroes left in 2013. Coming up soon is Jeff Wadlow’s Kick-Ass 2, which greatly expands the cadre of heroes and villains from the original film. One such new introduction comes in the form of Battle Guy (Clark Duke), whose backstory is revealed (sorta) in this new clip from the film. In another new clip, tried-and-true vigilante Hit-Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) fights the never-ending battle of overbearing parenting.
Also starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Jim Carrey, Kick-Ass 2 opens August 16th. Hit the jump to watch the clips.

Here’s the official synopsis for Kick-Ass 2:
Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010’s irreverent global hit: Kick-Ass 2. After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation. When we last saw junior assassin Hit Girl and young vigilante Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy.
Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to retire—leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls on her own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, the world’s first super villain, The Mother F%&*^r, assembles his own evil league and puts a plan in motion to make Kick-Ass and Hit Girl pay for what they did to his dad. But there’s only one problem with his scheme: If you mess with one member of Justice Forever, you mess with them all.
