History: (Marvel Rising Alpha#1) – To illustrate a point on computer event loops to her class, teacher Doreen Green drew a chalk figure on the board of a lovable and loyal squirrel, dubbed Nutsy McSmasher, with a hammer who would search for and smash open nuts. The student Ember Quade, later known as Emulator, used her Inhuman powers to turn Nutsy into digitized reality then she sent the newly-alive giant squirrel to attack her class. Ms. Marvel and Squirrel Girl teamed up against Nutsy, who kept smashing at them with the hammer. Squirrel Girl pinned Nutsy then Ms. Marvel hit the squirrel with its own hammer, dissipating it. Emulator soon summoned Danger Kong to fight the heroes as well.

Comments: Created by Devin Grayson and Georges Duarte.

Is it me or does the chalk drawing of Nutsy resemble the squirrels from Disney's "A Sword in the Stone?" --Proto-Man

Danger Kong

(Marvel Rising Alpha#1) - A famous video game character, Danger Kong was a super-strong gorilla who threw projectiles in the game. Later, Ember Quade (later known as Emulator) used her powers to create a digitized construct of Danger Kong to attack her school. Danger Kong threw bookshelves and garbage cans at students before Squirrel Girl, Tippy-Toe and Ms. Marvel attacked and restrained the gorilla before dissipating his energy.
