Squirrel Girl now available on Marvel Avengers Alliance

NAT83013Playdom has made the fan favorite Squirrel Girl available in Marvel Avengers Alliance beginning this weekend. However, players must first complete the Covert Task called “Bright Eyed, Bushy Tailed” from now until September 18 in order to recruit her. It is unknown if she will not be available for recruitment once the tasks expire. Upon completion of the ten tasks, players must pay 90 command points to recruit her.

Squirrel Girl is a scrappler class character who is deceptively powerful. She has a good chance to avoid melee attacks and inflicts a great deal of pain without having to spend a whole lot of stamina. Believe it or not, this is in keeping with how she is characterized in the comic books, where she has shocked many delightful fans at having managed to defeat the likes of Deadpool, Wolverine, Dr. Doom, and Thanos. If you don’t believe me, here are the actual scans of some of her victories Marvel considers canon.
