    The fact that you see Tulip as “pretty much just a love interest” can be explained by your hazy memory of the comics. Re-read them when possible; Garth Ennis made her a very relatable and complete character.

      Thanks for your feedback. That said, I don’t remember being impressed with her or her agency over her life in the same way I was about, say, any of the women in DOOM PATROL.
