First Appearance: Marvel Super-Heroes III#8 (January, 1992)


Powers/Abilities: Squirrel Girl is a mutant and has enhanced strength, speed, agility, and reflexes; her metabolism is likely quite high, requiring regular feedings. She has small claws on each digit to enhance her gripping and climbing, enlarged incisors, a retractable knuckle spike able to carve through solid wood, and a bushy semi-prehensile taile which she can use to cover others' eyes or wrap around herself for warmth. She can leap several stories and she can perfectly mimic squirrel sounds, as well as actually communicating with and directing the actions of squirrels. She often uses a number of squirrels to distract or even assault others, chewing through circuitry and other materials. She shares a close, possibly empathic bond with certain squirrels, such as Monkey Joe and Tippy Toe.

Her belt's pouches, or nutsacks, typically hold nuts, which she can consume for energy; Macadamias, in particular, give her extra pep.

    She has been seen to fly in her Squirrel-a-Gig, a gift from Big Bertha (her "Secret Santa").

Height: 5'3"
Weight: 100 lbs.
Eyes: Brown
Hair: Brown
Note: It is unclear whether the markings around her eyes are natural or cosmetically applied.


(Marvel Super-Heroes III#8) - In the woodlands near Stark Enterprises, Squirrel Girl encountered Dr. Doom while on the way to meet Iron Man. Squirrel Girl jumped on a low flying Iron Man while he was testing an experimental radar system. After they both crash-landed, Squirrel Girl introduced herself and her abilities to Iron Man in order to win him over as a super-heroic partner. Unfortunately, Iron Man was not impressed, but before he could leave Dr. Doom disabled his armor and knocked him unconscious with a pulse-interruption ray. A tractor beam then hoisted all three of them into Doom's flying craft.

Squirrel Girl and Iron Man were both imprisoned within the same deathtrap; Iron Man was secured by energy draining bonds, but Squirrel Girl was unfettered within their prison. Spotting a vent, Squirrel Girl was able to open it and call for her squirrel friends. The squirrels jumped aboard the ship from the treetops, chewed through wiring, disabled Iron Man's bonds, and attacked Dr. Doom. While he was being gnawed on, Iron Man and Squirrel Girl encountered Doom. Rather than meet defeat by squirrels, Doom opened an escape hatch, disappearing into a nearby river. Iron Man gave chase while Squirrel Girl waited shore-side but Doom escaped.

(GLX-Mas Special#1 (fb)) - Squirrel Girl fought and defeated the Mandarin.

(GLX-Mas Special#1 (fb)) - Squirrel Girl fought and defeated the Atlantean Giganto.

(GLA#2 (fb) - BTS) - Squirrel Girl and Monkey Joe relocated to Manhattan, New York, operating out of Central Park.

(GLA#2) - Squirrel Girl and Monkey Joe took out a pair of muggers threatening Doorman and Flatman, after which the two GLA'ers invited her to join. When they ok'd Monkey Joe joining as well, she agreed, and she almost instantly joined them on a mission to investigate an alarm. The four GLA'ers attempted to assist Grasshopper against Batroc's Brigade (though he was doing quite well on his own). Squirrel Girl and Monkey Joe were present during the less-than-six-second interval between Grasshopper's joining the GLA and being killed by Zaran. Squirrel Girl and Monkey Joe wondered whether they'd made a mistake in joining, but Squirrel Girl decided that she was not a quitter.

(GLA#3) - Squirrel Girl and Monkey Joe arrived at GLA headquarters, and Doorman began trying to spook her by showing her all of the members who had died. When the GLA went to investigate the scene of the first crime, Flatman recommended that Squirrel Girl remain behind on monitor duty. Not wanting to miss out on super hero stuff, she refused, recommending Monkey Joe stay behind instead. When Doorman questioned Monkey Joe's abilities (since he was a rodent, after all), Squirrel Girl argued that Monkey Joe had once defeated Dr. Doom. When she asked for a show of hands of who else present had taken out Dr. Doom, the other GLA'ers were forced to yield to her wishes. While Flatman questioned the designers of the Chronal Accelerator at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Doorman kept trying to scare Squirrel Girl. Doorman apologized soon after, revealing that he was trying to scare away new members to prevent their deaths. She then offered him a nut from her nutsack. However, at the same time, Leatherboy, a former member of the GLA who had been expelled for not having powers, invaded GLA HQ, broke Mr. Immortal's neck and then attacked and killed Monkey Joe.

(GLA#4) - Squirrel Girl was excited about opposing Maelstrom and his Cosmic Crunch, which could be their biggest adventure ever, but she was devastated upon returning to GLA HQ and learning of Monkey Joe's death: "He was a good squirrel. My best friend. I love you." Afterwards, she had no interest in going after Maelstom, but Mr. Immortal reminded her that if the whole universe was destroyed, all the squirrels would be, too. Determined to prevent this, she summoned an army of squirrels to help her, "Chhrt Cheet Cuk Cuk Cuk!" Upon confronting Maelstrom and his lackeys, Batroc's Brigade, she sent the army of squirrels after Machete, reminding them that this one was for Monkey Joe. The vortex generated by Maelstrom pulled the squirrels into it, but Squirrel Girl managed to save one of them, whom she named Tippy-Toe (though she considered Monkey Joe 2).

(GLA#4) - Later, back at GLA HQ, after the GLA had received a cease and desist order from the Maria Stark Foundation, all of the remaining members (except, presumably, Tippy-Toe) revealed to each other that they were mutants. They then followed Mr. Immortal's suggestion to become the GLX: the Great Lakes X-Men!

(House of M I#8 - BTS) - Squirrel Girl was among the handful of mutants who retained their powers after the Scarlet Witch cast a reality-altering spell to shut off the mutant gene. In the aftermath, there were roughly 300 active mutants worldwide.

(X-Men: The 198 Files - BTS) - General Demetrius Lazer of O*N*E made a threat assessment of the remaining mutants. In this report, he analyzed Squirrel Girl's threat as being low. Lazer also noted she appeared to be more concerned with the plight of the world's squirrels than involving herself in the human/mutant situation.

(GLX-Mas Special#1) - Flatman knitted a scarf for Squirrel Girl. It was colored to match his own costumed form.

(GLX-Mas Special#1) - Squirrel Girl was narrating the prologue to the comic special, when Doorman interrupted her and asked her to pick up some eggnog and toilet paper for the party. En route to the store aboard her Squirrel-a-Gig with Tippy-Toe, she saw a laser-fight and touched down. With "Dum Dum" Dugan's blessing, she and Tippy-Toe took out MODOK, who was trying to steal equipment from Maelstrom's former base. Dodging MODOK's blasts, she and Tippy-Toe disabled his exoskeleton and he surrendered. Citing her impressive record, Dugan offered her a position with S.H.I.E.L.D., but she turned him down as she already had a team of her own.
    Squirrel-Girl returned to the party with the eggnog, but forgot the toilet paper and headed out again and came across the spaceship of Thanos, who planned to charge his Pyramatrix with the life force of everyone on Earth and then conquer the universe.

(GLX-Mas Special#1 - BTS) - Squirrel Girl fought and defeated Thanos.

(GLX-Mas Special#1) - Uatu the Watcher appeared, congratulating on saving the entire multiverse, and he further confirmed that it was "the one, true Thanos" she had defeated, and "not a robot, clone, or simulacrum."

(GLX-Mas Special#1) - Later, at the GLX party, Squirrel Girl asked Doorman if he had any plans for Christmas Eve, and he replied that he had to see his dad.
    Later still, Dum Dum Dugan called Squirrel Girl to help stop Terrax, who was on a rampage downtown. Feeling that Tippy-Toe had had a busy day, she asked her girl-squirrel to stay home and sit this one out.
    On Christmas morning, Doorman gave Squirrel Girl a hat that matched his own costumed eyes. She and the other GLX'ers were pleased to see the Christmas star in the sky, though only Doorman was aware that what they were really seeing was the flaming corpse of Grasshopper (Neil Shelton)'s body as it re-entered the atmosphere.

(I ♥ Marvel: Masked Intentions#1) - Squirrel Girl fantasized about kissing Speedball, much to the amusement of Tippy-Toe. Leaving her room of Speedball memorabilia, she asked Flatman and Mr. Immortal to come with her to Madison where Speedball was making a public appearance and pose as bad guys so that she could save Speedball from them. When Mr. Immortal suggested that she simply introduce herself to him, she complained that they were making fun of her and stormed off. At Madison, Squirrel Girl caught sight of Speedball's enemy the Bug-Eyed Voice sneaking up on the Masked Marvel, and she sprang to Speedball's aid, defeating the villain. However, no one witnessed her fight, and the police couldn't charge the Bug-Eyed Voice with anything more than a misdemeanor because he was only carrying paint-guns. They suggested that she return to the "big city"-- Milwaukee. Dejected, Squirrel Girl was astonished when Speedball appeared and thanked her for saving his life and then kissed her. As he bounced away, she wondered who told him what she had gone, and suspected Tippy-Toe.

(Thing II#8 (fb)) - Visiting some squirrels in Manhattan's Central Park, Squirrel Girl and Tippy-Toe were drawn to the sounds of a battle between the Thing and the Bi-Beast. Reasoning that his dual noses made him more susceptible to foul odors, Squirrel Girl and Tippy-Toe gathered large quantities of garbage that so distracted the Bi-Beast that the Thing could easily punch him out. The Thing invited Squirrel Girl and her friends to his upcoming poker tournament.

(Thing II#8) - Squirrel Girl and the GLX attended the tournament, though Marvel Girl (Rachel Grey) took offense at the name Great Lakes X-Men and forced Mr. Immortal to pick another name. He chose GLD/Great Lakes Defenders, but Dr. Strange denied this as well. Later, after Flatman had won the tournament, Squirrel Girl and the rest of her teammates sang, "We are the Champions," leading Mr. Immortal to pick a new name: the GLC/Great Lakes Champions, despite Hercules' objections.

(Cable & Deadpool#30 (fb) - BTS) - The morning the Superhuman Registration Act was passed, Squirrel Girl and the rest of the GLC registered.

(Cable & Deadpool#30) - Unaware of the GLC's registering, Deadpool attacked them (minus Squirrel Girl) in their headquarters. He managed to kill Mr. Immortal (who got better later) and blew the place (and himself) up in the process. While recovering, he was attacked and viciously beaten by an enraged Squirrel Girl. The GLC then turned Deadpool over to the local authorities, who were unsure what to do with him, as it was the first time they'd actually caught someone. All the while, Squirrel Girl demanded Deadpool shut his evil, evil pie-hole.

(Mighty Avengers I#1 - BTS) - Tony Stark and Ms. Marvel discussed who should spearhead their first official Avengers team after the superhuman Civil War, Squirrel Girl was one of the superhumans they reviewed.

(Deadpool/GLI: Summer Fun Spectacular#1/2) - The newly-rechristianed Great Lakes Initiative journeyed to Wisconsin to find the source of an inebriation wave which had rendered nearly all of Earth's heroes drunk. Aided by Deadpool, they discovered a hidden A.I.M. base owned by Dr. Tannenbaum where the Olympian god Dionysus had been forced into their machines. The legions of A.I.M. were terrified at the very presence of Squirrel Girl, who they deemed to be the "Anti-Life" and "Slayer of All That Breathes." Afterwards Squirrel Girl gained access to Olympus to return Dionysus and helped Zeus out with a problem with Pluto. Back home the GLI invited Deadpool to join their team as their first reserve member.

(Deadpool/GLI: Summer Fun Spectacular#1) - Learning the horrible fate which Speedball had suffered since the destruction of Stamford, Squirrel Girl took off to try and help him. With Tippy-Toe, she broke into Thunderbolts Mountain and tried to console Robbie (now Penance), pointing out that the deaths weren't really his fault. However, Penance was so far gone that he refused to believe her. Still determined to help him, Squirrel Girl went to Latveria and had Dr. Doom let her use his time travel machine so that she could try to save Robbie from his destiny. However, Squirrel Girl and Tippy-Toe wound up in the alternate future of Earth-2992 instead, where a divergent Speedball had been stranded with other time-traveling heroes. Squirrel Girl considered staying there with him so that they could renew their romance, but she discovered that Mr. Immortal was still alive in this future, and he told her to return to the past to help the GLI, who had been overwhelmed by Deadpool's obnoxious behavior since joining the team. Squirrel Girl returned just in time to kick Deadpool out, once again admonishing him for being a "evil, evil man."

(Avengers: The Initiative#19) - During the Skrulls' so called "secret invasion" the Great Lakes were one of many Initiative team's infiltrated by a super skrull. Squirrel Girl and her team were surprised to find out Grasshopper was the infiltrator, during their fight the team was joined by Gravity (Greg Willis) and Catwalk of the Skrull Kill Krew. While her friends fought "Grasshopper" Squirrel Girl complimented Catwalk on her earrings after which the decapitated head asked if she was wearing fake fur. Squirrel Girl confirmed she did and her little friend Tippy-Toe wouldn't let her wear anything that isn't cruelty-free.

(Avengers: The Initiative#25 - BTS) - Squirrel Girls and the Great Lakes received message from Avengers Initiative director Norman Osborn they would receive a new leader: Wisconsin born Gravity.

(Avengers: The Initiative#25) - The cheerful Great Lakes awaited Gravity's arrival at the airport. Gravity, however, was less than pleased to join the team after being replaced by Prodigy as teamleader of Nevada's Heavy Hitters.

(Age of Heroes#3/4 (fb) - BTS) - Squirrel Girl fought and defeated Baron Mordo.

(Age of Heroes#3/4 (fb) - BTS) - Squirrel Girl fought and defeated Korvac.

(Age of Heroes#3/4 (fb) - BTS) - Squirrel Girl fought and defeated Ego the Living Planet.

(Age of Heroes#3/4 (fb) - BTS) - Squirrel Girl fought and defeated Fing Fang Foom, leaving him near a construction site.

(Age of Heroes#3/4) - Squirrel Girl returned from her fight against Fing Fang Foom to the Great Lakes headquarters where her friends were playing cards. When they asked her about the fight she mentioned she and Tippy-Toe could have needed their assistance. However, the Great Lakes were determined they would just get in her way and recalled several other threats Squirrel Girl had dealt with. Realizing the Great Lakes would never reach their full potential if she would be there to take on all of the threats Squirrel Girl decided the time had come to leave the Great Lakes and continue on her own. Leaving through the bathroom window Squirrel Girl made her way back to the construction site where Fing Fang Foom was still unconscious and told the media that were on-site she was the one holding the Great Lakes back and for now on would go solo. When the camera asked what was next she replied Disneyland!

(I Am An Avenger#1/3) - Squirrel Girl decided the time had come for her to return to New York City, the place that truly felt like home. She and Tippy-Toe boarded a crowded airplane and subway to reach central park where she witnessed Iron Man flying by. Ecstatic to be back Squirrel Girl took to the trees where she commented it was good to be back.

(New Avengers II#7) - When Avengers Luke Cage and Jessica Jones were looking to hire a nanny for their infant girl Danielle, Squirrel Girl was among the many superpowered applicants, some of the other applicants were D-Man, Sepulchre and Ultragirl. While most of the diverse cast rubbed Cage and Jones and wrong way Squirrel Girl did exactly the opposite, revealing she couldn't think of anything more rewarding than helping guide a child into the person they would eventually become. During the interview she asked to hold baby Danielle who immediately took a liking to the squirrel-like girl, recognizing her love for children Cage and Jones decided to hire Squirrel Girl on the spot. Just than, while still holing the baby, Squirrel Girl noticed several Avengers walking by, Wolverine in particular. Instantly recognizing James she noted he looked well prompting Wolverine to ask what she was doing in Avengers mansion. Explaining she would now be working in the Avengers mansion Wolverine reminded her they'd promised to never see each other again, hinting at some kind of mysterious relationship. Unwilling to give up her newfound job she hoped they could agree to be professional, Wolverine agreed after which he told her she looked amazing. Somewhat confused by the situation Jessica Jones asked for her baby after which the Avengers witnessed the arrival of Dr. Strange's "man"-servant Wong.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#653) - Squirrel Girl answered the Avengers phone while feeding baby Danielle. On the other line was Spider-Man who was in the midst of fighting the Scorpion (Mac Gargan). In need of assistance Spider-Man asked for Wong, Squirrel Girl, however, didn't quite understand the gravity of the situation and asked the Spider to call back later since both Strange, Wong and the other Avengers had gone away on a mission. Spider-Man then hung up on the super nanny.

(Wolverine IV#8 - BTS) - In an effort to save Wolverine from "Hellverine" several X-Men (Emma Frost, Kitty Pryde, Rogue and Jubilee) and his girlfriend Melita Garner entered Wolverine's mind to help him. Upon getting lost Emma Frost entered a room named "sexual fantasies" filled with several of Wolverine's sexual fantasies, amongst them was Squirrel Girl. Other's were Mystique, Spiral, Jewel (Jessica Jones) and Emma Frost herself, she quickly left the room.

Although Doom escaped, his faceplate was recovered and his ship was more than likely kept as well by Iron Man, so he should still have them in storage somewhere. Of course, Doom is notorious for booby-trapping his gadgets or rigging them with surveillance devices, so they may have been destroyed.

    Will Murray takes credit for Squirrel Girl in the credits of the Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD: Empyre novel. He also reveals her real name in that issue.

A message from Squirrel Girl creator Will Murray:
    Nice job on the Squirrel Girl profile. In case you don't know, there was an SG Fleer-Skybox card. Note that this artist assumes SG wears clown makeup, and painted her face blue.
Will was kind enough to scan the card.

In Marvel Age#124 (1993) - Squirrel Girl, Razorback, a gun-toting Frog-Man and gun-toting, leather jacket-wearing 3D Man banded together to form the Misfits. This was probably on an alternate Earth.

Narrative prologues and out-of-story comments
Monkey Joe and Squirrel Girl have several narrative prologues and out-of-story comments that are probably not in-continuity. It usually involved Squirrel Girl complaining about violence or issues degrading to women, or of Monkey Joe telling people to eat more nuts.:

    GLA I#1-4
  1. Squirrel Girl introduced herself and Monkey Joe and cautioned kids not to try anything they saw in the comic. Grasshopper also appeared, telling Squirrel Girl that kids didn't read comics, and that fanboys were all overweight men in their thirties with poor hygiene.
        Monkey Joe made several other appearances, encouraging fan boys to write in yo complain about Grasshopper's commentary, warning that child endangerment is never funny and that suicide is stupid because you don't get to eat any more nuts, commenting that product placement never hurt, and predicting that another GLA'er would die in #2.
  2. Squirrel Girl again reminded kids not to do anything they saw in the issue, like illegally downloading music from the internet. Monkey Joe backed her point, telling why doing this with music or comics was wrong. He also decried the Magnolia soundtrack, commented that the urban myth motif would only work for the first year of any character's continuity, noted that 5.8 seconds was a new record for the shortest membership on any team (following Grasshopper's death), and predicting that yet another GLA'er would die in the #3.
  3. Squirrel Girl and Big Bertha discussed how most comic book writers treat rape and violence towards women so cavalierly because they are overweight men in their thirties with bad hairlines who never got any action in high school (or college, Monkey Joe punctuated). Monkey Joe also cautioned kids not to play with scissors, declared that the Dr. Doom he and Squirrel Girl had defeated was not a Doombot, complained that a flashback within a flashback was poor storytelling.
  4. After Squirrel Girl found his body, his ghost told everybody that life was too short and that they should go outside and live. His final words of wisdom were, "but through the living, all live on. The ghosts of friendships and loves remembered. Take succor in that, while you can. For in the end, all that awaits you is there black, empty void of oblivion. And above all, remember: eat more nuts." When Squirrel Girl sent her squirrel army after Machete, exclaiming "This one's for Monkey Joe," he commented that it wasn't like it would bring him back or anything. He then headed off into the light...
        As the GLA became the GLX, Tippy-Toe cried out, "Enough with all the doom and gloom! Let's dance!"

    GLX-MAS Special#1
  5. As they run into Thanos, "Here we go again."
  6. In response to the Flatman action figure, she told everyone, "Remember, always get your parents' permission before using scissors."

Profile by Kyle Smith, Snood & MarvellousLuke.

Squirrel Girl has no known connections to

Monkey Joe

Best friend of Squirrel Girl and a member of the Great Lakes Avengers (see the comments).  He remained behind on monitor duty during their first mission since his joining, and while he researched Roxxon's Atomic Inverter via the Internet, he was ambushed by Leatherboy, a former member of the GLA who had been expelled for not having powers. Leatherboy performed unnatural acts on him, burned him to death, and stomped on him. When Deathurge came for Monkey Joe, he took the form of a squirrel, making himself vulnerable to an assault by Mister Immortal.
    Monkey Joe's spirit passed on.

A very intelligent squirrel, he could surf the Internet without assistance.

--Marvel Super-Heroes III#8 (GLA#1-4 (prologues/vignettes), GLA#2-4


    Part of the squirrel army summoned by Squirrel Girl to help against Maelstrom and Batroc's Brigade, she was the only one Squirrel Girl was able to save from Maelstrom's Cosmic Crunch device. Squirrel Girl also briefly considered the name Monkey Joe 2 for her. Knowing Squirrel Girl, it is almost a certainty that she would have insisted on Tippy-Toe's membership into the GLA and the GLX.



    Tippy-Toe accompanied and assisted Squirrel Girl in defeating MODOK (leaping atop and scratching his face then entering his exo-chair and disabling it) and then Thanos. Squirrel Girl left her behind when she went to fight Terrax, and Tippy-Toe was targeted by Deathurge, who sought vengeance on the GLX for being stranded on Earth and being trapped in squirrel form. Later, Tippy-Toe joined Squirrel Girl on her adventure to try and help Speedball, briefly visiting Earth-2992 in the process.
