I call bullshit on Squirrel Girl needing anyone's help.

I'm sure there's going to be complaints about her not being able to handle the situation herself (her being able to beat Thanos once and all), but I like the way she's used here. She has this crazy-awesome feel to her from her past adventures, but this is her first time as a semi legit AVENGER, and she's protecting a child, so she would probably be a bit over her head.

...thanks. After the rage-inducing stuff DC threw out there in the last post, I needed that.

And hey, Doreen's exhausted (and wounded!) from fighting her way TO the mansion, she's got Dani in her care as her first priority, and she doesn't really know the mansion's defensive systems anywhere near as well as she SHOULD have had them explained to her. That's a fair reason for her to be in over her head even before you add in sheer weight of numbers. (Even Dan Slott toned down her crazy-awesomeness a bit last time he worked with her--remember how tired out she was after beating Fin Fang Foom, since the rest of the GLAers didn't help out?)

Put that all together, and it makes perfect sense that she needed a little backup from someone who'd been an Avenger before. Nothing wrong with that. Besides, part of her ability to beat anyone is that they tend to underestimate her and thus give her the opening to win. The Nazi mech pilots had already seen what she could do, and wouldn't be underestimating her any more, so now it'd be harder for her to win.

(By the way, who here would love to see Doreen cameo as a random fangirl hanging out in front of Avengers Mansion in "The Avengers," blithering Tony's ear off while he waits for them to open the gate for him, and then, when Tony complains that they need more security to keep the rabble away from the gate, Nick Fury's only response is to chuckle, "So you met the squirrel girl, huh?")

It's one thing for Squirrel Girl to be badass all on her own. But here, she was protecting a baby, so she had to keep her priorities straight.

The main thing I was thinking through this issue was...Daredevil doesnt kill people. And unless nazi cant be killed by explosives he killed a lot of nazis.

Last panel: Daredevil POV shot. Put your ear up to the panel, rub it, sniff it, or lick it to find out what he's pointing at

There was a lot of nice stuff here, but Daredevil's rampage against the mechs? Seeing him holding an ubergun and blasting away was uncomfortable.

Though the stories and writing is great!
