* RealitySubtext: In one episode of the 2001 series, Tick eventually snaps at his (supposed) wife for wanting to sit down to dinner instead of fighting crime. While likely unintentional, the outburst probably resonated with longtime fans who wanted him to actually fight someone.

* CreatorBacklash: Ben Edlund wants to focus on science fiction and horror for his entertainment output. Fans keep asking for more of The Tick.
