The new Tick TV show is great! Have you seen it? The first handful of episodes are available now on Amazon TV and they’re pretty great! I loved them! And the good news is that the second batch of episodes will be in February!
The new Tick is a really nice update to everything we’ve seen before. It focuses on Arthur as a neurotic nobody who gets thrust into the world of superheroics alongside the mystery and strange new hero, the Tick! And with his help, Arthur might really become a hero and stop the Terror from terrorizing the world!
Also, I’m totally an Arthur/Lint ‘shipper!
If you’re like me, you gladly watched the new The Tick pilot on Amazon last Summer. It was hilarious and awesome and, thankfully, a whole TV show has been made! Here’s a trailer!
The show will be available on Aug. 25, so keep your eyes peeled! I can’t wait. I’ll be just about done with The Defenders by then, so the timing is perfect.
Have you heard about the new live action The Tick show on Amazon? They’ve produced a pilot with the hopes that it is popular enough to warrant an entire series. Well I’m here to tell you that the pilot is pretty great and I really hope it gets pushed to a full series pick-up.
And the best news of all is that you can watch the pilot for free online!
I really enjoyed the episode. It’s realistic in all the right ways, while being just cartoony enough to definitely be The Tick. The actors are fantastic, the action is really cool, and neatest of all, it’s written and developed by Ben Edlund, the guy that created The Tick in the first place! How cool is it that the original creator gets to come back and reimagine his most famous creation for a new adaptation? I also really like the big twist of the episode, but I won’t spoil it here.
I don’t know how this pilot program thing really works, but hopefully if we spread the word enough, The Tick will be seen and enjoyed by all. And then picked up for a full series!
If nothing else, my blog is a place where I can talk endlessly (even if it’s just to myself) about my favorite superheroes. I know I talk a lot about comics in general, and even sometimes about movies, TV shows and video games. But gosh darn it, I talk about Multiple Man so much that he’s even got his own category. And I bet there’s a good chance that a lot of the people reading my blog have never even heard of Multiple Man! It’s not like he’s on the Avengers. Or even on the X-Men. But Multiple Man is real and he’s my favorite superhero. I even liked him in his 10-second cameo in X-Men: The Last Stand. He was the only good part of that movie.
Multiple Man is Jamie Madrox, a mutant born with the ability to create duplicates of himself. Ever wanted to be in 10 places at once to get all your errands done? Multiple Man can do that. It’s his super power. Madrox has had a semi-long career on the outskirts of the X-Men franchise, never quite joining the team, but always somewhere in the background. Most prominently, he is the longtime star of the X-Factor comic series, and has been headlining the book now for nearly 100 issues. So I’m a happy fan. And to celebrate Madrox’s awesomeness, this week’s blog list is a look at 6 other characters from pop culture who share his rather unique super power.
I realize this is kind of a crummy list this week – unless you’re a Multiple Man fan – but don’t worry, I’m gonna make up for it next week!
