Tired of your superheroes being serious and dramatic and just no fun? Well Amazon has just cast the lead in the cult classic superhero tale The Tick.

Deadline reports Peter Serafinowicz best known for voicing Darth Maul from Star Wars and more recently for his small role in Guardians of the Galaxy will bring The Tick back to life in a new pilot for Amazon’s streaming service.

Created in 1986 by Ben Edlund, The Tick is a comedic superhero parody who has no memory of his life before donning his Tick costume and is portrayed as mentally ill.

In 2001 Fox ran a short lived live action show starring Patrick Warburton in the lead role and even though the show lasted only 9 episodes it achieved a loyal following.
