->''"Domestico[[note]]Spanish for "Domestic" or "hand-made"[[/note]] is a super-hero story [[RealityEnsues that sounds real from every point of view]], and yet includes every aspect required for said genre. There is a [[SuperHeroOrigin genesis]] of his powers. [[ArchNemesis The deep loath of his nemesis]]. [[DistressedDamsel The victims that needs rescue]]. An [[UtilityBelt extravagant choice of tools]]. The helping {{Sidekick}}s (a la [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Alfred]]). And of course, his super powers ([[{{Determinator}} fighting until the very end]], uncommon quality among mortals)"''
-->-- '''Liniers''' (prologue)

''Domestico'' (Spanish for Domestic/Home-made) is an {{Argentinian}} one-shot comic created by Sebastian De Caro and Diego Greco (bad dog). It's a realistic story about a normal (but somehow crazy) guy who one day decides to dress up on a superhero costume, and be a superhero himself. Since the setting is realistic, let's just say things don't go exactly according to his plans.

This comic book pre-dates ''ComicBook/KickAss'' the comic by one year, and has more than a few things in common. Besides the setting of "normal dude who dress up as a super-hero" and who "gets his ass kicked hard time", the suits' similarities are astonishing. Said similarities are even bigger in the Movie, and the actor playing ''Kick-Ass'' resembles Doméstico a lot.

!! This comic provides examples of:
----

* {{AntiHero}}/WellIntentionedExtremist: In order to became a super hero, Domestico is willing to [[spoiler: steal money for a super market and deceive his grandmother]].
* {{Deconstruction}}: of the SuperHero genre. While it has everything that a super hero needs to be called one, the whole thing is extremely realistic.
** ArchNemesis: [[spoiler: Is the guy who is only with the girl he loves.]]
** [[StockSuperpowers Super Powers]]: has none, [[{{Determinator}} besides being incredibly stubborn]].
** {{SideKick}}s: For different reasons, two or three guys help him during his quest. Most of them are only former friends, and hate helping him in this.
** DistressedDamsel: [[spoiler: The woman he loves. She is not in danger, and she doesn't want to see him.]]
** [[UtilityBelt Extravagant Tools]]: [[spoiler: he only has an scooter he buys from a ebay-like webpage.]]
* {{Determinator}}: described as Domestico's only super power.
* HollywoodNerd: Domestico is quite handsome for being a nerdy guy.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial (combined with HeroicWannabe/ IJustWantToBeBadass): All Domestico's motivation for becoming a super-heroe is to be able to be special. He wants to prove that, even in the dullest world, something unusually movie-like can happen.
* RealityEnsues: [[DownerEnding Pretty much the ending]]. [[spoiler: The girl he was trying to win over ignores him and calls him crazy. The guy he tries to defeat beats him up easily. The people from the Asylum find him (thanks to his friend betraying him) and lock him up again]]
* SuperHeroOrigin: Mariano talks about his past in order to explain why he became Domestico.
* UnreliableNarrator: Subverted. Mariano is totally nuts, but his story is 100% believable.
