Dick Tracy (Literature)

"...kind of like a Dick Tracy kind of thing."

Dick Tracy is the super-detecting, crime-avenging, gadget-using hero of first a comic strip, then comic books, and finally a movie where he had the misfortune of being played by Warren Beatty and being involved with Madonna. He is famous for using fancy gadgets, which is what Logan is referring to.

"His password is Dick Tracy? Oh, that is adorable."

Tough-as-nails detective Dick Tracy has been matching wits with criminals since 1931. With an array of advanced technology at hand (literally, in the case of a walkie-talkie watch), he studies a crime scene and figures out whodunnit. When Dick Tracy is after you, consider yourself caught. Tim, the nerdy, slightly creepy TA, probably idolizes the famous detective, but as we all know, he's no match for our Veronica.
