I got a few productive things done today. That's not the important part. The important part is that I picked up issue #2 of the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl.
If you haven't read it, love adorable things, and have an even passing interest in the Marvel universe, I implore you to pick up the first couple of issues. It's not too late. There's no overly complicated sea of lore to swim through to get it.
Squirrel Girl is a third-string superhero who used to work for the Great Lakes Avengers, lived in the Avenger's attic for a while, and now is moving out to college. The title picks up there. Despite having a power set pretty much limited to the relative strength and agility of a squirrel, combined with what I can only refer to as squirrelepathy, she has taken down some A-list baddies in her day.
Issue #2 revolves around her trying to get to the moon to fight Galactus. This duty falls to her as no one else can see his arrival, as Galactus' ship is cloaked - but forgot to shield it against squirrels (who are always sneaking into observatories to watch for trouble). One part of one of her plans is to steal a pile of parts of old Iron Man suits and try to convince them to cover her and her best squirrel friend Tippy-Toe so they can fly to the moon.
ARE YOU NOT SOLD YET?!?!
