This can't be coincidence!

In the animated tv series _The Tick_, in an episode entitled "Heroes," a
supervillian calling himself the Deadly Bulb appeared. He was originally
called Pigleg, for the good and sufficient reason that one of his legs
terminated in a pig, rather than a foot, but he wanted an image change. As
the Deadly Bulb, one of his gimmicks was *blinding* flashes of light.

And of course, you all remember the name of the catacrest Silk is offered
before he buys Oreb in _Nightside the Long Sun_: Tick!
