If You're Not Following Squirrel Girl On Twitter, You Are Not Living Your Best Life

Every issue of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl opens with a credits page that is also a look into Doreen Green's social media life, as she chats with friends and fellow superheroes about her adventures. But those social media accounts don't just exist in the pages of comics, but on actual Twitter too, and guys, they're pretty dang good.

The Unbeatable Squirrel girl account itself is famously active as the comic's social media presence, hyping up new issues while also offering an important voice on squirrel-related events of the day:

But what makes this whole thing even more adorable is that the other Twitter accounts that appear in the comic also totally exist in our otherwise-much-more-depressing-version of real life. Doreen's best friend Nancy Whitehead has her own account, which is, naturally, mostly related to cats, Thor, or the delightful combination of both, Cat-Thor. But even better is the fact that Tony Stark's own Twitter — @StarkManTony — is real too, and mostly exists to interact with Squirrel Girl's. Case in point, this scorching hot take Tony had earlier this week in Doreen's mentions about... the Greek myth of Icarus.

Canonically speaking, Tony Stark is meant to be kind of sort of dead/in a coma/walking around as an AI in the Marvel comics-verse right now, but reader, this Twitter conversation even manages to address that.

Only the magic of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl can bring about moments like this. I love this comic and everything surrounding it so much, you guys.


    What's the point of inventing the term mansplain if the definition keeps changing?

      I continue to wonder why "explaining something in a condescending manner" needed to become a gendered issue. My anecdotal experience has been that women do this about as often as men do.

      But I think the image in the article header was just a light-hearted joke anyway so whatever.

        Because changing the topic is a great way to hide ones stupidity and accusing a man of being a sexist is a great way to get him on the back foot.

    "I love this comic and everything surrounding it so much, you guys."

    Agreed. It's my #1 favourite comic these days. Every issue gives me at least a chuckle or several if not a few outright LOLs :)

    Not like canon really matters. USG's universe didn't take part in the collapse of the multiverse, so really it's its own separate beast. Thankfully.
