Our Editor's Take

Comedy meets superhero action on Marvel's Squirrel Girl: The Unbeatable Radio Show! The podcast series is one of Marvel Entertainment's audio fiction ventures. It follows Squirrel Girl's adventures after her outing as a superhero. Squirrel Girl, aka Doreen Green, first appeared in the Marvel universe in 1991. Her team affiliations include the Avengers and Mechanics. The character's abilities include communicating with squirrels and regenerative healing factors. Her arsenal includes a prehensile tail, retractable knuckle spikes, and sharp claws.

Will Murray created Squirrel Girl as an antithesis to typical drama-laden comics. Artist Steve Ditko brought his idea to life. Will credits the artist for inventing Squirrel Girl's knuckle spikes. He said that he based the superhero on an ex-girlfriend who liked critters. In 2015, after several supporting roles in other Marvel comics, series, and movies, Marvel revamped Squirrel Girl. For the first time, she starred in her own standalone series, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. The comic series ran until 2019, with a total of 58 issues. Marvel's Squirrel Girl: The Unbeatable Radio Show! continues the storyline from the comic books. Ryan North wrote the revamped comic and podcast series.

The podcast is about Squirrel Girl's life as a semi-retired superheroine attending college. Her attempt to dole out advice over the radio starts with chaos. She's overheard making a snide comment about Captain America. Her first caller is a kid looking for help cheating on his homework. Soon, however, Squirrel Girl has much bigger problems to contend with. In her debut comic book appearance, Squirrel Girl had to face off with Doctor Doom. Now she faces a new foe—Fine Art.

Marvel's Squirrel Girl: The Unbeatable Radio Show! is hilarious and lighthearted. The writers balance comedy with serious superhero business. The always-positive Squirrel Girl provides a refreshing listen. She breaks away from the heavy drama popular in a lot of comics.
