He’s a superhero unlike anything we’ve seen before, and he’s pretty darn blue. In the literal sense. Based on the Ben Edlund comics, “The Tick” is played by Peter Serafinowicz, and is not your ordinary superhero.
The trailer for the upcoming TV show has been released, and you can check it out above.
