Earlier this month Marvel TV announced they would bring a new hero team to Freefrom called Marvel's NEW WARRIORS. As part of that announcement, it was revealed Squirrel Girl would be a member of the team.
Today, in a press release, Marvel disclosed the full team of heroes joining Squirrel Girl:
Doreen Green a.k.a. Squirrel Girl
Superpower: 'The powers of a squirrel, the powers of a girl' (is acrobatic, strong, can fight, can talk to squirrels)"Doreen is a totally empowered fangirl. She is a natural leader—confident and tough, but not innocent. Doreen is bouncy and energetic and her greatest quality is her optimism… She has faith in others and inspires people to believe in themselves. She also takes her pet squirrel, Tippy Toe, everywhere."
Craig Hollis a.k.a. Mister Immortal
Superpower: Cannot die. Ever. Maybe. So he says."The team troublemaker and lothario… Craig is kind of like 'The Most Interesting Man Alive,' except he’s more cocky than confident and at times, charmingly grumpy. Although Craig’s superpower seems amazing, he hasn’t made use of it at all—he’s lazy and figures if he has all the time in the world to learn how to fight, what’s the rush?"
Dwayne Taylor a.k.a. Night Thrasher
Superpower: None"Dwayne is a local celebrity 'hero' with his very own YouTube channel. Brilliant, strong, noble, and maybe a bit full of himself, Dwayne is a shameless self-promoter and entrepreneur. But he also deeply believes in justice — at least his version of it. Dwayne hides the fact that he comes from a really rich family because he’s afraid he’ll lose his street cred."
Robbie Baldwin a.ka. Speedball
Superpower: Can launch kinetic balls of energy"Robbie grew up watching Quinjets take off from Avengers Tower and loves the idea of being a hero. He’s an impulsive and immature people-pleaser with a misplaced sense of confidence. Although you would think throwing kinetic balls of energy would be awesome and effective – his are completely out of control."
Zack Smith a.k.a. Microbe
Superpower: Can talk to germs"Zack is a shy hypochondriac whose ability nearly makes him a telepath — the germs tell him where you’ve been, what you ate and who you hung out with. It’s impossible to keep secrets around him. He’s a big sweet guy the team takes under their wing, and they help him find and grow his own confidence."
Deborah Fields a.k.a. Debrii
Superpower: Low level telekinetic; trickster'Deborah is proud, funny and quick witted. Confidently out as a lesbian, Deborah has experienced deep loss in her personal life as a direct result of super 'heroics.' She can take care of herself, or at least says she can. She’s the one who calls people on their BS and has no fear of putting her opinions out there."
“'Marvel’s New Warriors' is about six young people with powers living and working together. With powers and abilities on the opposite end of the spectrum of the Avengers, the New Warriors want to make a difference in the world … even if the world isn’t ready. Not quite super, not yet heroes, 'Marvel’s New Warriors' is about that time in your life when you first enter adulthood and feel like you can do everything and nothing at once – except in this world, bad guys can be as terrifying as bad dates."
