The The Tick vs. The Proto-Clown wiki last edited by Renchamp on 10/05/13 07:56AM View full history

The Tick and Arthur return to the City to find that nearly everyone is gone. The few heroes that remain (only because they couldn't get a ride out) inform them that a new menace is ravaging the City. The Tick goes toe-to-toe with the problem - a hulking clown. The clown sends the Tick into space and the rest of the heroes scatter.

They are about to be smashed until the Tick falls back to Earth (he had been on an existential journey through his mind while in space) and lands on the clown.
