Insect-Guy, real name Norman Nerd, is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. He is a superhero from New Tek City in the Special Zone, who made a single panel appearance in Sonic the Comic #93.
He was bitten by a radioactive insect and granted super insect powers to fight crime. He was the idol of Richie Rover, a young resident of New Tek City who attempted to emulate Insect-Guy by dressing up as "Insect-Pup".
- Insect-Guy is a reference to the Marvel Comics hero Spider-Man (real name Peter Parker; coincidentally, both of their real names are alliterations). Their back-stories, costume and powers are all similar.
