Outside of the DWU, Tuck first appeared in the comic Death's Head II #3. The fact that her name resembles Friar Tuck is not a coincidence. There are parallel between her origins in a futuristic world resembling medieval Europe and Robin Hood's England. In particular, in Tuck's introduction story, the new Death's Head, under the alias of "Hood", was a leader of a group of outlaws calling themselves "Merry Men". Further, during Tuck's first encounter with Death's Head, she was travelling with nuns.
