THE TICK (FOX 2001)
"I am the wild blue yonder. The front line in a never-ending battle between good... and not-so good. Together, with my stalwart sidekick, Arthur, and the magnanimous help of some other folks I know, we form the yin to villainy's malevolent yang. Destiny has chosen us. Wicked men! You face...The Tick!"
The life of a superhero is not easy. There are not enough dangers. However, someone must fight evil and protect good. The few who face this challenge have to leave behind comfort, security and a little sanity. Jumping from roof to roof in one single jump, the mysterious blue justice defender The Tick (Patrick Warburton), with his limited knowledge of human life, patrols The City to protect society. Teamed with his new side-kick Arthur (David Burke), aka The Moth, a former frustrated accountant who had secretly always wished to be a superhero, fight against injustice alongside Batmanuel (Nestor Carbonell), a Latino superhero who never promotes himself without a worthy cause and Captain Liberty (Liz Vassey), the government's number one weapon on the battle against supervillains. The Tick is based on the 'cult' comic character created by Ben Edlund. (Digital, 201 min)
