Is Marvel ashamed of the mutants or something? Just what is going on with this company and decisions (Yes I am aware that Fox has movie rights and that could be what is causing a problem).

It's because of Fox, but in this particular example, it's a deliberate in-joke about the issue.

The bolding of the words 'and legally' in this scan seem to point in that direction.

I think it's more likely that Marvel told him to do it, and he decided to be cheeky about it, rather than he decided to do it on his own.

No! It's my personal judgement, based on the over-the-topness of it (mom suddenly blurting it for no reason, the shifting of tone, the lampshaded gratuitous"and legally"); and also on my intuitions about Ryan's distinctive sense of humour, as a veteran Dinosaur Comics reader.

I see what you're doing, Marvel @ryanqnorth, you meta-joking devil you.

Ooookay.

That joke's going to be very dated and confusing later. But it's probably better than giving her an entire new non-mutant origin.

So if she’s not a Mutant, I wonder what he origin will be. Bitten by a radioactive squirrel? Actually an uplifted squirrel experimented on by the High Evolutionary, adopted by her human parents? Alien/human hybrid? Was her mother exposed to the Mystical Acorns of Ratatoskr while pregnant with Doreen?

....Doreen was either bitten by a radioactive squirrel and/or the Mystical Acorns of Ratatoskr. But probably she'll be just another NuHuman.

According to the comic it was either a squirrel bite, cosmic rays in a forest ,an experimental nut serum or a radioactive tree. Or maybe something else that happened during the nine months that her mother was pregnant.

When it comes to Squirrel Girl, the answer is obvious. All of the above.

She's a cosmic entity. Does she really need an origin?

Ya know, I wonder if this will matter if the chips come down.

I mean, they ID'ed her as a mutant several times. Not just in her first appearance, but later in great lakes mini. And even without the cheekiness, it's kinda an obvious move.

She's the living embodiment of the Squirrel Force.
