Okay, New Avengers #19 is out today and Doreen makes like a horny teenager for Daredevil and he rejects her "squirrel musk" after asking how old she is. But that's not what I want to talk about.

This is cross-posted from The Sketchcard Saloon, where we love the people at Marvel Comics. They pay attention to the community. They recognize the throngs of Squirrel Girl fanatics around the world and they tickle us until we bust a gut. This time they took it over the top.

In an interview about the upcoming Avengers vs. X-Men event, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Alex Alonso turned a question from the audience into one of the most intriguing possibilities in comic book history. What if Squirrel Girl became the next host body for the Phoenix Force? With a wink and a nod, he even threw in a mock-up for added effect. The illustration above is an example of tantalizing tongue-in-cheek trolling of the highest caliber.

We asked Axel who the artist was, on Twitter. He graciously supplied the culprit: Irene Lee, one of Marvel's top bullpen production artists. Irene also happens to be the genius who created the following.

That is, by far, one of the coolest things we have ever seen. While we wait for next week's Heroes and Heralds mode DLC for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 to get us zoned, we will return to Squirrel Girl. And announce a contest.

What WOULD a finished Dark Squirrel Girl look like? We want you to show us. Draw it yourself, ink and color Irene Lee's drawing at the top of this page, or get your Photoshop on. Send us a scan of your version of the Phoenix Force incarnating inside the purity of Doreen Green, and we will publish the results right here in the Saloon. Prizes include Squirrel Girl comic books, the Marvel Super Heroes Comic Combat video game featuring Squirrel Girl, and official Rittenhouse Archives Squirrel Girl sketch cards. Everyone who enters will win something!

Send scans of your Dark Squirrel Girl to: sketchcardsaloon@gmail.com Deadline: February 14th.

One more tease, and then we will leave you to your own devices. Jean Grey felt the power once upon a time, now it's Doreen's turn. This is going to be nuts.

Okay, the Ultimate Kitty poster is made of adorable. Don't recognize the one to the right of Kitty!Rocket Racoon, though.

No, Kitty!Sentinel is the big robot one near the middle.

Crimson Viper (assuming I got the one who is Rocket Raccoon correct).

rdfox: Joker asking Tim Drake, "'Sup?" from Paul Dini's "Slay Ride" (Default)

A while back, I came up with a pondered archfoe for Doreen, her own cousin, who has essentially the same mutations... except that hers are skunk-based, and given the reputation all things mephitine have in our society, it forced her to be a punch-clock supervillain instead of a hero. (To the point of actually being somewhat beloved in her home base of Waukegan, Illinois, because she's a hell of a lot less horrible than the average supervillain!)

Her name? Skunk Girl. Complete with her own Smellicopter. Even did a crappy photoshop of the first appearance of the Squirrel-a-gig to show what she looks like... that seems a lot more likely for a Dark Doreen than Dark Phoenix, IMO! ;)

Well, this was back in her GLA days that I came up with it. And I freely admit I'm not good with naming characters...

I will say it again: Shuma Gorath Kitty is adorable.

OK I'm gonna ask a question sure to catch me a lot of flak.

Why does everyone get all wet over Squirrel Girl?

She's pure comics -- an irrepressibly upbeat ├╝ber-dork with a ridiculous power set who has -- starting with Dr. Doom -- single handedly beaten the heavyweights of 616 from Deadpool, Bi-Beast (heh heh) and and Modok to Korvac, Fin Fang Foom and -- as confirmed by Uatu himself -- Thanos! What's no to love?
