Damon Macready, known by his alias Big Daddy, is is a prominent character in the superhero comedy Kick-Ass. He is a former police officer, the father of Mindy Macready, and the alter ego of crime-fighting superhero Big Daddy.

He is portrayed by Nicolas Cage, who also portrayed Cameron Poe in Con Air, Stanley Goodspeed in The Rock, Grug Crood in The Croods, Zoc in The Ant Bully, Johnny Blaze in Ghost Rider, Ben Gates in National Treasure, Randall Raines in Gone In 60 Seconds, Balthazar Blake in The Sorceror's Apprentice, and Spider-Man Noir in Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse.

History

Damon Macready was once an NYPD police officer, along with his partner and friend Marcus Williams, but was framed for drug dealing by crime lord Frank D'Amico after he refused to work for the gangster, and sent to prison. Damon's wife, who was pregnant with their child at the time that he was framed, committed suicide after giving birth to a girl, Mindy. Damon spent five years in jail, while Marcus volunteered to take care of Mindy. While imprisoned, Damon formed an intricate plan to get revenge against D'Amico. Once freed from jail, and reunited with Mindy, he set to work executing his plan. Damon taught Mindy about weaponry, fighting styles and how to take a bullet to the chest by wearing a bulletproof vest.

A skilled artist, Damon adapted his story into a comic book series for his daughter to use as research and inspiration. The two became the father-daughter crime-fighting duo Big Daddy and Hit-Girl, and seeked to bring down Frank D'Amico's organization by tracking down and killing D'Amico's henchmen and drug dealers one by one before taking out D'Amico himself.

During this time, a teenager named Dave Lizewski also became a masked, crimefighting vigilante called Kick-Ass. Mindy admired the young vigilante, although Damon was not impressed. After meeting Kick-Ass, however, he softened somewhat towards him, and allowed him to stay in contact with them if he ever needed their assistance.

Marcus discovers Damon's alter ego, and condemned his former partner for seeking vigilante justice and "brainwashing" Mindy into becoming a killer. Marcus warned Damon that a corrupt detective named Vic Gigante, who was on D'Amico's payroll, was looking for Kick-Ass because he was being blamed for Big Daddy and Hit-Girl's actions.

Later, Big Daddy attacked D'Amico's warehouse, killing every thug inside before burning the warehouse down. However, unbeknownst to Big Daddy, the entire event was recorded by D'Amico's son Chris, who placed a secret camera in the warehouse inside a teddy bear. After receiving the tape, the younger D'Amico had Gigante hunt down Big Daddy. Marcus contacted Damon and informed him that the recording was shown to the NYPD by Gigante, and that the police were now after him.

Kick-Ass contacted Big Daddy and Hit-Girl for help after being told by fellow superhero Red Mist that they were both wanted dead by "some bad motherf--kers". Big Daddy agreed to meet him at one of his safehouses. Upon arriving with Red Mist, the two were greeted by Big Daddy who welcomed them inside. As soon as they entered, Red Mist, who in reality was Chris D'Amico in disguise, gunned down Hit-Girl, and the safehouse was soon thereafter raided by a group of goons who took both Big Daddy and Kick-Ass captive.

Frank D'Amico planned to let his henchmen post a live video of them beating up and torturing Big Daddy and Kick-Ass on both national television and the internet. Just as they were about to set the place on fire and kill them both, Hit-Girl, who had survived the gunshots due to wearing a bulletproof vest, arrived and killed D'Amico's henchmen, rescuing Kick-Ass, but was unable to save her father in time, who was fatally burned. Damon told Mindy that he was proud of her, and father and daughter expressed their love for each other. Damon then died with a smile on his face.

Damon's death was avenged by Mindy and Kick-Ass, who were successful in defeating D'Amico and destroying the crimelord's business.

Appearance

Unlike his comic book variation, Damon is lean and often wears glasses when working with art and technology. He has a natural mustache and has brownish bronze hair. 

As Big Daddy, Damon wears a Batman-inspired suit that is 100 percent bulletproof. Underneath the cowl, Damon has black paint around his eyes and fake but thin facial hair added by the sides of his mouth. He carries 2 pistols and close-quarters combat knives for stabbing and throwing. When Hit-Girl unmasks her father, it is revealed that the cowl is made in seperate pieces: the mask, the temples, and the small bat-like ears/the top of the cowl.
