The Tick

A powerful but dim would be superhero calling himself "The Tick" is sent to "The City" after he crashes and ruins a superhero convention. The Tick thinks that he's been given a great deal, but in reality the city is a dumping ground for useless, unwanted superheroes. Meeting Arthur, a ex-accountant who wants to be a sidekick (and even has the costume to boot), the Tick starts to defend his city when the villainous and muffled idea men threaten to flood The City; and in the process finds that he's not the only superhero in town.
