I actually never read The Tick. My local comic shop didn't carry it so my first exposure was the original cartoon.
Well.

I think he means the original comic, cause it definitely began to ape the show

But the important thing is that the original creator was involved with the cartoon, Warburton's show and this show

Yeah, the original comic before the cartoon and everything.  You still had goofier elements like the Man Eating Cow and stuff, but more often that not, the world played the straight man to the Tick.  Even the parody characters like the Superman parody and the Elektra parody were played somewhat straight and the comedy came from them reacting to the Tick's weirdness.

Yeah The Terror, Ms. Lint, and Ramse The IV are the main villains. For heroes you got Tick, Arthur, Overkill (Batman/Punisher hybrid), Dangerboat (Overkill's KITT like boat voiced by Alan Tudyk) and Superian (A Superman knockoff).
