The Tick!
Gallery of Superheros and Sidekicks From the Tick Comics

Arthur

Arthur

Arthur is The Tick's sidekick. He is an ex-accountant who purchased a flying moth suit at an auction and decided that he wanted to be a superhero. Arthur hangs out with The Tick for excitement. All of Arthur's normal friends and his sister Dot think he should give up superheroism (or sidekickery) and go back to his day job, but so far he has persevered.

Appearances: The Tick #1: The Tick! (background), The Tick #2: Hi-Rise HiJinx (background), The Tick #3: Night of a Million-Zillion Ninja (background), The Tick #4: A Big Fight, The Tick #5: Early Morning of a Million Zillion Ninjas, The Tick #6: Villains, Inc., The Tick #8: A Matter of Cosmic Import...and other stories...

The Cape

The Cape

The Cape is a 'golden age' hero that The Tick reads about in a superhero magazine. Not much is said about him overall, but he was an ally to The Sultan and due to his armored cape, he had back problems later in life. I don't know if this is supposed to be the same The Cape that showed up in the live show or not.

Appearances: The Tick #8: A Matter of Cosmic Import...and other stories...

The Caped Wonder

The Caped Wonder
A.K.A. Clark Oppenheimer

The Caped Wonder is a Superman clone who encounters The Tick in The Tick Issue #1 and The Tick Issue #2. The Tick generally makes Clark's life a living hell by following him around and getting a job as a crossword puzzle editor for the same paper Clark works for. There are some tense (and hilarious) moments as The Tick and Clark have low key battles in company meetings.

Eventually, after The Tick unleashes Clark's Fortress of Fortitude and ruins his car, Clark looses his temper and attacks The Tick, but as you can see at the left the Tick manages to destroy Clark's disguise and escape.

Appearances: The Tick #1: The Tick!, The Tick #2: Hi-Rise HiJinx!

The Man Eating Cow

The Man Eating Cow

The Man Eating Cow got her start as a creature in the pit of torture owned by Chariface Chippendale in The Tick Issue#7, The Moon Menace. . After Chairface was defeated, The Man Eating Cow took to the streets and later ate two triggermen who were trying to assassinate The Tick. When Tick and Arthur left for New York at the end of The Tick Issue #8, A Matter of Cosmic Import...and other stories, Tick officially left The City in the 'hands' of The Man Eating Cow.

Appearances: The Tick #8: A Matter of Cosmic Import...and other stories...

Oedipus

Oedipus

Oedipus is the heroine of the Million-Zillion Ninja saga. She has several weeks of ninja training under the venerable ninja master Shing. She is also perhaps best known as the person who caused The Tick to have a lucid moment.

Appearances: The Tick #3: Night of a Million-Zillion Ninja, The Tick #4: A Big Fight, The Tick #5: Early Morning of a Million Zillion Ninjas

Paul the Samurai

Paul the Samurai

Paul the Samurai is the sworn foe of Sagin the Ninja master from Japan. When Sagin comes to America, Paul follows him to try to force a final confrontation. In America, he teams up with The Tick and Arthur for awhile and is instrumental in The Tick realizing that he has pockets...

Paul now has his own spinoff series of comics, but I haven't read them yet.

Appearances: The Tick #4: A Big Fight, The Tick #5: Early Morning of a Million Zillion Ninjas

The Running Guy

If The Caped Wonder is a jibe at Superman, The Running Guy is a jibe on Flash. The Running Guy is "faster than ten fast men". Unfortunately for him, it is very hard to get started in The City, and he is forced to hire The Red Scare from Villains Inc. to stage a heroic battle. When he shows up to the battlefield late, though, he finds that the Red Scare was busy battling The Tick.

Appearances: The Tick #6: Villains, Inc.

Shing

Shing

Shing is the Ninja master who taught Oedipus. He was once the master of all Ninja operations in America, but when he got old he was overthrown by the younger (and more business savvy) District Manager. Shing, like Sagin, is disgusted by the incompetent fools passing as Ninja and he seeks the Thorn of Oblivion to destroy all Ninjas everywhere.

Appearances: The Tick #1: The Tick!, The Tick #3: Night of a Million-Zillion Ninja, The Tick #4: A Big Fight

The Sultan

The Sultan

The Sultan was THE hero in the 'golden age' of heroism. Sultan's book describing his exploits and his battles against King Crime is what inspires Arthur to superheroism (or sidekickery at least).

Appearances: The Tick #8: A Matter of Cosmic Import...and other stories...

The Tick

The Tick

The Tick is simply the coolest superhero of all time. Sure, he escaped from a mental institution and he is a bit clueless; but he gets the job done and he has fun doing it.

Spoooooon!
