Squirrel Girl needs a movie.

omg yes

LISTEN UP YOU MAGGOTS
THIS CHARACTER IS BY FAR THE MOST POWERFUL, THE MOST INTERESTING, AND THE MOST WORTHY OF BEING YOUR ROLE MODEL EVER.
FIRST OFF SHE NEVER ONCE GOES GRIMDARK NOT ONCE AND WHEN SPEEDBALL WENT AND DID HIS STUPID CLIVE BARKER POINTS POINTED INWARD ARMOR THING SHE CALLED HIM OUT ON IT AND OUTRIGHT DECLARED SUCH A THING WAS CHILDISH AND MADE HIM INEFFECTIVE AS A HERO BECAUSE A HERO HAS TO BE APPROACHABLE.
ALSO LETS TALK ABOUT HER SUPERPOWER. YOU TAKE ONE LOOK AT HER AND THINK SHE’S JUST A LOSER RIGHT? WRONG. SQUIRREL GIRL HAS THE MUTANT POWER TO NOT ONLY HAVE SQUIRREL TRAITS BUT CAN ALSO COMMAND THE ABSOLUTE LOYALTY OF SQUIRRELS. HOW MANY SQUIRRELS? TRY EVERY SQUIRREL EVERY WHERE. FLYING SQUIRRELS, TREE SQUIRRELS, I BET YOU SOMEHOW SHE CAN EVEN COMMAND THE LOYALTY OF SOME SHITASTICALLY RARE POISON SQUIRRELS.
BECAUSE OF THIS POWER SHES MANAGED TO TAKE ON FOES THAT WOULD NORMALLY JUST INCINERATE HER ON THE SPOT. SHE TOOK ON DOCTOR VICTOR VON DOOM FOR PETE’S PATOOTS NOT A DOOM BOT THE ACTUAL DOCTOR DOOM AN ACTUAL SORTA ALIEN GOD CALLED THE WATCHER HAD TO ACTUALLY FACT CHECK THAT SHIT BECAUSE EVEN HE DIDNT BELIEVE IT AND THAT FUCKER NEVER INTERVENES FOR SHIT BUT HE HAD TO IN THIS CASE BECAUSE THE WORLD JUST COULDN’T BELIEVE SQUIRREL GIRL DEFEATED THE GENUINE DOCTOR DOOM HE WAS LIKE “OH HELL YEAH I HAVE TO COME DOWN AND FACT CHECK THIS SHIT THE UNIVERSE NEEDS THIS WHAT IM SURE GALACTUS CAN WAIT.”
ALSO HOLD ONTO YOUR PANTALOONS BEACUSE THIS LADY ACTUALLY TOOK ON GALACTUS AND WON.
GALACTUS YES THAT GALACTUS THE GIANT DUDE THAT EATS PLANETS SHE TOOK ON A SPACE GOD WITH NOTHIN GBUT MOTHERFUCKING SQUIRRELS.
SHE NEEDS A SERIES. A MOVIE, A FANBASE SHES JUST THAT AWESOME.
ALSO SHE’S PART OF A LOSER HERO TEAM CALLED THE GREAT LAKES AVENGERS AND ITS STAFFED BY A DUDE WHO CAN COME BACK TO LIFE WHEN HE DIES LIKE KENNY FROM SOUTH PARK
FUCK
IM DONE HERE JUST USE WIKIPEDIA ALREADY DONT TAKE MY WORD FOR IT

No, seriously, it has become something of a running gag that Squirrel Girl can defeat any villain.
Any. Villain.
She is like “Instant Fun, just add Squirrel Girl”.
I strongly recommend reading her adventures, they are just super-great. ^__^
(Minor correction, it is actually the Great Lakes Champions, not Avengers.)

(She also has a healing factor and enhanced strength among some other squirrel-themed powers.)

Marvel set up a system of gauging superheroes powers and based it largely on which characters have defeated and lost to other characters to determine what those power levels are.  Due to Squirrel Girl having defeated so many strong villains, they were forced to put every single power category at 7 out of 7.
She is the only Marvel character in history to achieve this.

The red are what fans think her power ratings should be.
Blue is canon ratings.

The Diversity Gap in the highest grossing science fiction and fantasy films. Sad, right? You can see the full study here.

 I highly recommend reading the entire article. 
from the infographic:
Among the top 100 domestic grossing films:
only 8% of films star a protagonist of color
of the 8 protagonists of color, all are men; 6 are played by Will Smith and 1 is a cartoon character (Aladdin)
0% of protagonists are women of color
0% of protagonists are LGBTQ
1% of protagonists are people with a disability

When people call you strong, sometimes it’s hard to take it as a compliment. They mean well, and are probably admiring how you’ve managed to pull yourself through crappy things in life (or so I’m told) but equally… Or at least in my case… I find it hard to take it in a good way. Or I can take it well at the time, but it eats away at me too. (I’m just as guilty for saying it to people, especially when they’re going through stuff because, well I guess I’m not great with the wordy feely things.)

I’m the sort of person where at the moment of a crisis I panic. If I get some horrible news, I cave in on myself and feel like the floor is dropping away beneath my feet and all I can think about is whatever it is I’ve just been told. I can’t take a step back from the situation. I can’t calm down. All I can do is spiral and cry and feel like I’m drowning. I reach out to people around me in the hopes that they can help me make sense of whatever it is that I’m dealing with because all rational thought has gone out the window. Once I’ve had that panic, and reached the bottom of the spiral (which is normally because I’ve exhausted myself and pass out, or if I’ve been too stubborn to reach out to people, have willed myself to not cry and not dwell on it and focus on moving forward) I just push it deep down inside and try not to think about it.

And that… is not a good coping mechanism. Why? Because it means that I then get people being all like “how are you feeling now?” which is obviously met with me standard I-don’t-want-to-talk-about-it response of “fine” or my weird “it’s always darkest before the dawn” inspirational quote spiel that I only ever whip out when I feel like dirt. And generally? They don’t delve any deeper. Because who really wants to hear someone recount all the ways that they’re struggling and feeling like they’re constantly drowning? And I’ve been playing this game for so long now that I know how to make it sound convincing that I’m fine. I know how to laugh and make it sound like I’m dealing with things. And the problem with that is that people then feel like you’re this invincible person who can deal with whatever life throws at you. I’ve had someone say “wow, nothing ever really gets you down for long does it? You just get right back up. You always bounce back” But you know what, how can you bounce back when you never really got up in the first place?

I live my life in a constant fear of “waiting for the other shoe to drop”. Yes, I’m capable of enjoying life and getting caught up in happy times and all the rest of it… But when I’m lying in bed late at night and I can’t sleep because a million thoughts are racing around my head, or I’m driving somewhere and I’m so wrapped up in my own thoughts that I can’t bring myself to sing along to my favourite songs because I’m scared that if I open my mouth I won’t be able to stop myself from crying, and if I start crying I have no idea when I’ll stop… Those are the times that I wish I could stop being “strong”. They’re the times where I wish I could just curl up in a ball and cry until my eyes dry up, and scream at the universe at how it is so unfair because I don’t deserve this and I can’t deal with everything and curse every single person who has ever uttered anything similar to “everything happens for a reason” like the pain that I feel every day is some consolation for the fact that I’m “right where I need to be” and part of some grand plan that I’m not privy to.

The problem is, there’s a part of me that categorically doesn’t want to talk about anything… But there’s another part of me that is buckling under the weight of everything and is silently hoping that it will all come out.

Heh, I enjoyed this. Great mix of scenes + text posts.

This is amazingly perfect, and made even better by the part where I’ve already seen a lot of these posts making the rounds.
