About The Tick
The Tick is a superhero character best known from the 2001 series starring Patrick Warburton, which was re-booted in 2016 on Amazon starring Peter Serafinowicz. Both series are an adaption of a 1986 comic book by 18-year-old Ben Edlund which was also an animated series in the mid-1990’s. While each live-action tv series only managed to last one season, The Tick is still an incredibly popular character among diehard comic fans.
Somewhat of an anti-hero, the Tick is often considered too bizarre for the mainstream but still holds a cult following among fans. The Tick’s origin varies throughout his appearance, but he was originally known to have escaped a mental institution with the intentions of fighting crime. The 2001 series sees him leaving the bus station he has vowed to protect, in order to move to the city. No matter the back-story, The Tick is a much loved, wacky character!
