The Topnotch Tangler is a superhero who can untangle any knot and tangle with any villain that Tipp Town has to throw at her! Teamed up with the local police post, she keeps the city's streets clear by night while hiding in plain sight with her secret identity during the day. Of course, being a vigilante does complicate her love life...
