Ahead of the superhero comedy series' premiere in a few short weeks, Amazon has released an exciting new clip for their upcoming reboot of Ben Endlund’s The Tick. Spoon!

Produced by Edlund, Barry Josephson (Bones) and David Fury (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), the 12-episode first season (which’ll be split in two) finds Peter Serafinowicz (Guardians of the Galaxy) as the Big Blue Bug of Justice and Scott Speiser (NCIS) as the villainous Overkill.

The two characters come to blows in the clip below as The Tick’s sidekick, Arthur Everest (Griffin Newman), provides some (ahem) sidekick assistance to our near-indestructible blue hero, who provides a hilarious running commentary the entire frickin' time our "hero of the super variety" and "Mr. Stabby" (see: posters below) are battling it out. Ha! Check it out:

The Tick also stars Valorie Curry, Jackie Earle Haley, Yara Martinez, Brendan Hines, and Michael Cerveris and will debut on August 25 on Amazon.
