One of the things that has given me pause regarding the current DCU reboot is that so far, most of the fun characters are nowhere to be seen. Metamorpho, the Metal Men, Elongated Man, The Shazam Family, Blue Devil and more seem to have been cast aside in favor of more grim and gritty titles. I hope that changes soon as the diversity in character types makes for a more well rounded universe, in my opinion. Marvel doesn't have as many fun characters, but I have to say I am charmed by Squirrel Girl. Here's a character that is fun to read and really stands out among all of the more serious heroes as well as the other heroines parading around in glorified bathing suits. I hope that Marvel find more outlets for Squirrel Girl, her adventures always bring a smile to my face. Part 2 of this story is coming tomorrow!
