Tick #5: Early Morning of a Million Zillion Ninjas
Tick #5 completes the Million Zillion Ninja story line and officially
ties The Tick and Arthur
to their Superhero-sidekick relationship. The episode begins with
Tick finishing his destruction of Ninja World (which is a pity;
I'd have liked to visit it someday...and they can't rebuild because
didn't buy Superhero insurance) and going to visit Oedipus
in the emergency room. Arthur and Paul
the Samurai both follow him there, which of course brings
in Sagin for the final showdown...
Paul, and Arthur meet to discuss strategy on the roof but of course
they have left Oedipus alone and she's taken hostage by Sagin.
(they should have had Amanda in there; she might be more evil
than Sagin). When Sagin threatens Oedipus Tick threatens to throw
the Thorn off of the roof, but (SPOILER HERE) drops it on accident.
Sagin leaps off of the roof to try to save it but he learns that
Ninjas can't fly.
Tick makes a discovery (he has pockets!) and he formally accepts
Arthur as his sidekick, setting up more hilarity in future issues.
