In part 1 of this series, we looked at who Squirrel Girl is and in part 2 we looked at her power set and how she could have defeated Dr. Doom. To finish off the three-part series, I will discuss my thoughts on a Squirrel Girl TV show and how it might play out.
A TV Show?
Squirrel Girl is a more casual superhero, so a laidback sitcom esque show would be perfect for her character.
I think this would work out great if it was set in a high school and featured her day to day life except every once in awhile a scary villain can show up and Doreen defies all odds and defeats them in a comedic way. I believe it could succeed in what “Agents if Shield” tried to do before it became a serious show.
I honestly don’t think there needs to be an overarching villain or story. Just a series of 2-3 episode arches is all the show needs.
Of course, some villains would appear at times, I definitely wouldn’t mind seeing Whirlwind, Wizard, Slapstick or some other minor villain just to make things interesting.
If I would have to pick a network, I feel ABC would be the best place for it. Netflix should be reserved for Marvel’s more darker shows.
Of all heroes, why did I choose Squirrel Girl? Well, I picked her because I like the goofiness of her character and feel a laidback sitcom show would be interesting to watch. It could be a great way to bring relatively unknown villains to the small screen and introduce them to the world. This concludes my three part series on Squirrel Girl.
