Anthony "Tony" Romita is a minor antagonist of Kick-Ass. He was "one of America's most wanted crime kingpins" until he was arrested in Queens "after a 911 call from someone claiming to be a superhero".
In order to get the money needed to attain Red Mist's costume, weapons and and supplies needed to stop Kick-Ass, Hit-girl and Big Daddy, Chris D'Amico decided that their organization should turn one of their drug dealers/members over to the police for a large ransom. Their plan works, Tony's arrested and everyone in the city thinks that Red Mist turned him over to the police, making him "a hero".
