Let me tell you about my favorite superhero. Forget Batman, any superhero that can be played by the delightfully punchable Ben Affleck can’t be my favorite; Forget The Hulk, Spiderman, Captain America, and I’m sure we all forgot about Superman years ago.
My favorite hero is adorable, furry, and woodland themed. No it isn’t Rocket Raccoon, though “BLAM! Murdered you!” is basically the best catch phrase in history.
No. My favorite superhero is non-other than the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. No other woodland hero can compete.
Seriously, here she is standing behind the felled Thanos.
Marvel’s official character page shows all of her stats as maxed. Yeah, she’s one tough nut to crack. (It’s a pun. Laugh with me.)
You can read the announcement on ComicBookResources.com. Just look at her, standing astride the bodies of Doctor Doom, Thanos, Ultron, Mystique, and some villains even I’m not familiar with but who still look very intimidating.
This means I’ll have to go back to pushing my Squirrel Girl in Avengers 3 agenda on Twitter. It’s going to happen. Mark my words.
