Amazon Studios have announced they'll be adapting the quirky comic book hit The Tick. Peter Serafinowicz will take the leading role as the big blue bug of justice, with creator Ben Edlund writing and producing.  The Tick is a surreal parody of superheroes, with the title character a well intentioned if slightly simple hero, who protects The City from a variety of evil-doers.  With the avalanche of superhero films and TV shows being produced these days The Tick could be timing it's comic arrival to perfection.
