The Tick Vs. Doctor Doom



Nobody wants to squash villainy more than the Tick, and nobody has less patience for shenanigans than Victor Von Doom, so I think this would make for an interesting match up. I don't know who I would give the edge to in this battle, but  it would be fun watching Doom's nerves getting increasingly frayed.

Epic!

Spoon!

I think this would be like an episode of the Marvel Super Hero Squad, with Doom sputtering through the entire adventure. Ben Edlund is brilliant with what he's done with The Tick. Have you read his haunting take on Yogi's Ark? It's a short, maybe four or five page backup that was in some of the early Tick issues. It's really cool.

Haven't seen that one. I mostly became a fan of this tick from the cartoon show.

Tick versus Doom... this would be a little like the (sadly only one page) meeting between Ambush Bug and Batman. Doom certainly would be screaming with frustration, and in the end I have little doubt that Arthur would save the day.

This certainly would have the tone of the Ambush Bug/Wolverine pairing I've been wanting for such a time.

Hm. Don't know why it didn't post my name and link up there.

Well, if Squirrel Girl could kick Dr. Doom's ass, then why not the Tick?

Have you matched The Tick with Ambush Bug yet? I remember reading the DC Comics Presents Superman & The Doom Patrol issue with the first issue of Ambush Bug as a villain (believe it or not!). Then he reappeared a year later in that award-winning, groundbreaking hilarious mini-series parody by Keith Geffen. I was shocked, cuz I never thought any writers at DC had a sharp sense of wit & humor (J.M. DeMatatties shocked me too months later with the Justice League). Anyway, parody heroes (who break the 4th wall, yet remain in continuity) like Ambush Bug, The Tick, 'Mazing Man (you gotta use him, Ross, its long overdue) and Deadpool are really awesome. On a really sad note, Ambush Bug had almost disappeared Post-Crisis and was never around throughout the decade of naughts. But seems to be popping up as some kind of Superhero CNN reporter.

Tick/Ambush Bug? You may just get your wish...

@Invisible Chair: you can find all of Ambush Bug's post-Crisis appearances outlined at www.fourhman.com/ambushbug/

Yeah, the Ambush Bug is just too cool to disappear. I don't care how many reboots and Anti-Monitors they throw at him, he's busted through the fourth wall and he's gonna pop up again, sooner or later. It's inevitable. You can't keep a good bug down...say, speaking of popping up, maybe the Impossible Man and Ambush Bug..? Please, somebody stop me...

Wow, thanks for that tip, PBLFSDA. That is quite cool website. I'm crazy enough to head over to Midtown Comics (NYC) and track down most of issues!!!
