There are SO MANY reasons to love Squirrel Girl beyond just that story though. Okay, so the story that that happened in? It was back in the Golden Age of Comics, when that sort of story was pretty normal. It was an era when Superman would turn into a Gorilla like two times in one year. So yeah, no big deal there.
Thing is, it’s 2014, and Squirrel Girl….is still a Golden Age superheroine. She never wallows in wangst, she hasn’t had a Dark Age—heck she snapped the boy she had a crush on (another “Fun” character named Speedball) out of HIS Dark Age—and despite the fact that her powers consist of 1.) Can talk to Squirrels 2.) Has claws and a tail and 3.) Can climb trees like REALLY well, she has a better win record against supervillains than pretty much any other hero in the Marvel Universe.
She beat Thanos. To put that in perspective, Thanos is the guy the Avengers—the entire team, including a literal Norse God and the Hulk who has unlimited strength—are going to have to TEAM UP to fight in the next Avengers movie. She beat Fin Fang Foom. He’s a giant dragon—we’re talking Godzilla sized or so in some instances. She beat Ego the Living Planet. If you are not familiar with Ego the Living Planet….that name is not a metaphor. He is a planet. Wolverine is edgy when she’s around. Deadpool is terrified of her
She wins battles because Superheroes are supposed to win. Her books are fun and funny, because comics are supposed to be fun, and there aren’t enough funny books in Superheroes anyway.
Seriously, she’s just the best.
