Having defeated Barry for the right to use the super hero name "The Tick," it is determined that the Tick is also entitled to his base of operations and all of his equipment. As the Tick and Arthur move into the Tick Cave underneath Barry's mansion, their opponent turned host hatches a devious plan. When our heroes head out to investigate nefarious happenings at Brenda Industries, Barry calls his rogues gallery and tells them all about his new look, his new sidekick and where he can be found.
