A host of new characters from Amazon Prime Video’s new series The Tick have been unveiled.
Ahead of the shows arrival on 25th August 2017, Amazon Prime Video has released a series of characters depicting the main characters from the show. A set of character descriptions have also been released:
Arthur Everest (Griffin Newman)
Arthur lost his father as a child, and courageously tries to keep his fears from getting the best of him. Enter The Tick, who shows Arthur he will never be “normal”—because he’s extraordinary.
The Tick (Peter Serafinowicz)
This “humble, blue avenger” is a big riddle to everyone who meets him—and sometimes to himself. He’s here to fight for justice, but isn’t always sure how. The Tick sees a hero in Arthur—a sidekick with the brains he needs to make his brawn effective.
Dot Everest (Valorie Curry)
Arthur’s sister works as a Paramedic, but her biggest emergency is always taking care of her brother. If Arthur joins The Tick to fight evil, how will she fit into his life?
Miss Lint (Yara Martinez)
A super villain who runs with one of the gangs that controls The City, Miss Lint can zap her victims with a million volts of electricity.
Superian (Brendan Hines)
He’s the most famous superhero in the world, who made a crater out of The Terror, and restored peace to The City.
Ramses IV (Michael Cerveris)
Ramses runs the Pyramid Gang, which terrorizes The City. He and his gang all have Egyptian-style eye tattoos, since he understands that maintaining his brand is a huge part of his power in The City.
Overkill (Scott Speiser)
With hands and eyes made of metal, this “robo-ninja” is an unhinged vigilante who believes that violence is always the answer.
