Perhaps Ben Edlund's The Tick (and Arthur, Sewer Urchin, Die Fledermaus, Chairface Chippendale and all the rest) need to be experienced and not described. It's better that way. Here, at any rate, are two indispensable items. First we have a handy guide for coming up with super-hero names and catch phrases. When so many of the more striking name have long been claimed, it's harder and harder to devise one that a hero or villain hasn't already claimed. Just as actors often have to use their middle names because someone is already listed by the Screen Actors Guild (so Mary Moore became Mary Tyler Moore) or have to change their real name already (as David Bowie had to abandon his original last name because the Monkees had a singer named Davy Jones). So a new super-hero can't just be the Owl, he has to be the Midnight Owl or Owlympus or Owl Boy.
I must say, fans of the Tick know better than the expect a straight answer from him.
Those two pages of timeless enlightenment are from Greg Hyland's 1997 book MIGHTY BLUE JUSTICE, which includes (besides everything you need to know about Tickverse), a few pages of historic and scientific facts "qualifying this book as educational so it will be okay to read it in schools."
