The Running Guy is a thin, fit young man in his early twenties. His costume looks a lot like a bicycle racer’s gear : a green-and-white tunic, purple shorts, running shoes and a green-and-white bicycle helmet. His face is partially concealed by a green mask.
The front of the Running Guy’s tunic bears his logo, which he often has to explain to people : “Is it a shooting star or a chicken claw ?” “No, it’s a palm tree bent by hurricane-force winds. You know, as if… as if I had just run by really fast and WHOOSH, and the wind just… just bends the palm tree… you know ?”
DC Universe History
The Running Guy can be dropped into the DC Universe pretty much unchanged. If you’re bringing him in without the rest of the “Tick Universe” characters, he can still be a comic-relief “wannabe” superhero.
