The Heroes wiki last edited by Renchamp on 11/19/14 12:27PM View full history

The Tick and Arthur are featured on the hit show "Heroes," a show similar to "Cops." While on their rounds, they meet and momentarily defeat a new villain, the Deadly Bulb. The Deadly Bulb resurfaces and kidnaps Arthur and the cameraman. Arthur is used as bait while the cameraman is to film the Deadly Bulb killing the Tick -- all so everyone will forget the fact that the Deadly Bulb has a live pig for a leg.

The Tick finds the Deadly Bulb but gets duped into becoming the world's largest filament in a large light bulb. Fortunately, American Maid gets the drop on the Deadly Bulb by throwing an apple that the pig-leg chases. The Tick is freed and the Deadly Bulb is taken into custody by the police.
