I mean, Deadpool's popularity just SKYROCKETED after non-comic readers were exposed to him in X-Men Legends 2. But he seems to be a little overused now, but Squirrel Girl's popularity is only continuing to rise, and she fills the same kind of role "unbeatable solo hero who is also comical". Anyone think the focus may shift to her after a while instead of him for wacky Marvel hijinks?
Is she going to replace Deadpool?
Well, now that she's got such close ties to the real Avengers, I see a bright future for her. She could very likely become a top Avenger, or at the very least, show them all up like how she whooped Wolverine after Wolverine whooped Iron Fist, lol.
Unfortunately it's just a Super Hero Super Squad game, which while I hate that series, I'm getting that single game just to have the first game Squirrel Girl has appeared in. I don't think it's quite mainstream enough to skyrocket her like XML2 did for deadpool, but it shoudl help, at any rate. Plus love that it's the version of her as drawn in the newest New Avengers comics.
No. Reason on the fact for how long she's been around, had the same amount of initial exposure as he did before blowing up huge, and she never garnered the
kind of attention he has since. She has about as much of a chance at becoming anything more than a memetic badass as Aunt May does.
nope would never happen the game she is in is for children
Deadpool game is for a larger market , as soon as kids grow up a little the idea of liking Squirrel Girl would be long gone
and mainstream media isn't about to give someone named Squirrel Girl the exposure Deapool is getting
she might stay strong in small circles on the internet but not the media
she defeats people in weird ways and mostly not seen but talked about in the comics
Deadpool character has been in a couple of movies(mostly animated) a more likable character has his current videogame and possible own movie coming out
Maybe, I've pre ordered Marvel Lego game for my little sister, I am pretty sure a cute female hero who throws squirrels will be more popular then any other charecter, it's just a guess, but I imagine by this time next year she may well have a lego minifig on a key chain a Disney princess doll and a cartoon series on nickelodeon, it doesn't matter what we call cannon, Disney will want to appeal Marvel charecters to as large an audience as possible with as much merchandise as possible. Dead pool has his audience but it could never be as big as the girls aged 7-14 market lol... Best buy shares in stuffed squirrel toys ASAP ;)
