Flying Guy is described as an Armenian man with a history of mental health problems. He is also a man who, inspired by Kick-Ass, decided to try and become a superhero.
He is shown at the opening and the ending of the Kick-Ass graphic novel, having just created a costume and a metal set of wings, hoping to make his debut as a costumed crime fighter. He jumps off a rooftop, expecting to fly, but predictably falls and crashes into a parked car.
He is presumed dead, although this is never confirmed.
He briefly appeared on Kick-Ass film, reprising his role from the comic book.
- While he never claims to be called Flying Guy, a script in the early development of the graphic novel refers to him as Flying Guy, and so this is the closest to an official name that he will ever get.
