Ahhh. Comic book love. That is the wedding of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. She is also known as Jewel, and they are both members of the New Avengers.
Obviously the love between Luke and Jessica has borne fruit. Their baby is Danielle, and she has often been the focal point for some serious drama in the Marvel Universe. This weekend at the New York Comic Con, Brian Michael Bendis made a major announcement that will alter comic book mythology forever. Danielle’s new nanny will be Squirrel Girl.
As you can see, this beautiful baby is in constant danger of being snatched by supervillains. Since Squirrel Girl has never been beaten, she makes the perfect sitter. The offspring of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage could not be in better hands.
Brian Michael Bendis admitted this weekend that he has “written his Squirrel Girl issue”. What does that mean for Doreen Green? That remains to be seen. Bendis is a serious writer who delves deeply into the dark side of superheroes, and Squirrel Girl thrives in the light. She has never been featured in a mainstream Marvel title, and she has never been anything short of whimsical. The future of Squirrel Girl is about to change drastically, thanks to the cute little spawn of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones.
Very exciting times.
Those are the New Avengers, and you can probably recognize most of them. Marvel Comics busted their myth wide open this weekend at the New York Comic Con by announcing the addition of Squirrel Girl to the title. Yes, Doreen Green has been selected as the nanny for Danielle, the daughter of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. We can hardly believe it, but it is true.
Soon Squirrel Girl will be found in a mainstream Marvel title.
Aside from the fact that our bushy-tailed fave will now be rubbing magicks with Doctor Strange, perhaps the most thrilling aspect of this is simple.
Stuart Immonen will be drawing Squirrel Girl. ‘Nuff said.
The Squirrel Girl wave is about to crash into the mainstream of Marvel mythology. Yesterday at the New York Comic Con Brian Michael Bendis dropped a big bombshell for bushy-tailed freaks everywhere: Doreen Green is appearing in the New Avengers.
No, Harley Quinn is not crossing over. That little ditty is just a raucous romp by pennycandies on deviantart.com. The truth about Squirrel Girl’s new gig goes like this, straight from the Bendis’s mouth:
She will be chosen as the nanny for Luke Cage and Jessica Jones’ baby, and she will be found to have “a hidden past with some of the members.”
It’s true, and Bendis confirmed it yesterday. He has “written his Squirrel Girl issue”, and she will soon be part of the New Avengers. I can’t think of a better piece of news for 10/10/10.
