    Big Bismuth Black Device Growth Ray. Big Bismuth, the secret weapon created by mad scientist Dr. Karamazov, serves as both the bane of Superman-like character Superian and the reason for the Very Large Man (VLM) in Season 1 of Amazon Prime's popular series The Tick. One of the over-arching plots lines for this first season focused on the VLM who was made so with rays emitted from this device which appears in the first minutes of Episode 8 titled "After Midnight." This a rare opportunity to own an actual tool of evil that was ultimately thwarted by the Tick and Arthur. The piece exhibits some wear, the condition is Very Good. Dimensions are approximately 40" x 19" x 19".
    All lots in this auction were obtained directly from the production set for "The Tick" - a Prime Original and are accompanied by a signed certificate of authenticity from Sony Television Studios guaranteeing its authenticity.
    This lot will be shipped by ScreenBid from its Hawthorne, California offices.
