When Hedy Wolfe gained the rights to and began republishing the classic Patsy Walker comics, she gave Tom and others royalties for their likenesses. Using these funds, Tom opened Burly Books, a queer bookstore in Brooklyn. Later Tom reconnected with his old friend Patsy Walker and hired her new telekinetic roommate, Ian Soo.
One of the books being sold in the store is a Slash fiction between Luke Cage and Iron Fist, Power x Fist. Cage discovered it while visiting with wife Jessica Jones and their daughter Danielle, and read it with a puzzled look before Ian awkwardly took the book from Cage.
