The Tick (1994)

The Tick is the name of a blue-costumed muscular superhero who fights crime in a city simply called "The City". He is an absurdist spoof of the superhero genre, originally found in an independent comic book series started in 1988 by cartoonist Ben Edlund, subsequently gaining popularity through a 1994 animated television series on the Fox Network. A video game, a short-lived live-action television series, and even a board game have all been based on the character.

Its satire of both animated children’s TV shows and comic book superheroes came totally out of left field—the one similar parody from the time period I can think of is the occasional character “Really Really Big Man” from Rocko’s Modern Life. The Tick, though, was a full-time satirist, a possibly insane, blue man-child who possessed super strength but a lack of any common sense, and powerful abilities that literally increased or decreased depending on how “dramatic” his surroundings were.
