One of the most liberating things about these obscure Tomboy adventures is that everyone loves Tomboy.
I’m so used to the word “tomboy” being used pejoratively — to suggest that girls shouldn’t act “like boys” or whatever — so I expected the superhero Tomboy to either explicitly and defiantly challenge gender assumptions, or to be regularly criticized for acting according to some stereotype of “boyish” behavior, or both.
NOPE. Tomboy just does badass superhero stuff, and everyone loves her!
