Join us for our bite-sized discussion of UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #1, featuring the triumphant return of Marvel’s most unstoppable hero! She’s knocked out Thanos, she’s sent Galactus running, she may even have smooched Wolverine, but can she win the hearts of all four of our hosts? Tune in and find out!
The thing I always liked about Squirrel Girl is that she’s a throwback to the old Silver Age heroes that make zero sense and shouldn’t help them fight crime at all (DOLL MAN! With the power to… Shrink. And that’s it. No strength, no speed, nothing, just shrinking powers.). So I get the feeling this book is going to be silly-for-the-sake-of-silliness, with character-driven moments happening when she appears in other titles. I don’t remember what title or issue run it was, but there was a really good character arc just after Civil War where she followed Penance around and kept reminding him how much more fun he was as Speedball.
