After being saved from a villainous, napalm-spewing cow, Arthur wakes to find himself in the company of a superhero known as The Tick. Impressed with Arthur's amateur crime library, The Tick wants him as part of a crime fighting team. However, noting the problems of a co-worker who traded in his day job for superhero stardom, Arthur isn't so sure he wants to. Meanwhile, with the help of fellow superheroes Batmanuel, The Cape and Captain Liberty, The Tick seeks an arch-villain to fight. Despite warnings from his colleagues, The Tick sets his sights on the biggest super-villain of them all, The Terror. After alerting Arthur to their mission, The Tick places a phone call to The Terror's mansion, goading the 112-year-old villain into a fight. However, it's Arthur who's in trouble when he learns that The Terror has identified him. But when The Terror falls victim to a heart attack, The Tick notes that any victory over evil is a good one, regardless of the circumstances. When Arthur's abandoning his post at the hospital allows The Terror to escape, Captain Liberty and Batmanuel arrive to help stop him. With Arthur distracted by Metcalfe, the co-worker whose shot at superhero stardom has left him incapacitated, The Terror abducts Batmanuel, leaving Captain Liberty and The Tick to bring the evil villain to justice. While saving Metcalfe from a potentially fatal attack, Arthur fails to stop The Terror. Yet, with The Tick's help, The Terror is defeated, boosting Arthur's confidence in his abilities as a crime-fighter, and giving The Tick added faith in his new partner as well.

And tired of fending off romantic overtures sparked by her superhero costume, Captain Liberty is intrigued when a handsome stranger asks her out on a date when she's not in uniform. While everything from fingerprints to DNA fails to uncover anything, word from the police that a woman claiming to be his wife produces the first concrete lead in the search for The Tick's identity. And when the woman claims he is her missing husband, Ted Glick, Arthur accuses The Tick of deceiving him and then decides to return to life as an accountant. Meanwhile, Batmanuel warns Captain Liberty against keeping her superhero identity a secret from her new suitor.

But when she cannot convince a pet store owner to sell her the one she really wants, she turns to Batmanuel for help.
