Check Out Squirrel Girl's All New Flying Costume!!

Check this out, guys! Squirrel Girl has a new flying costume, which debuted in THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #17. Doreen was invited to meet a guest lecturer named Melissa Morbeck, and it turns out that Ms. Morbeck has a superhuman secret: She can speak with animals. Just like Squirrel Girl! Except that she can speak with any animal, while Squirrel Girl's powers are limited to squirrels.

Squirrel Girl was so excited to meet somebody else who could speak to animals that she instantly invited Ms. Morbeck to become her partner in crimefighting. (Though, she already knows several animal-speaking heroes like Chipmunk Hunk and Koi Boi, so I'm not quite sure why Ms. Morbeck is so special.)

Anyway, Melissa Morbeck instead offers to become Squirrel Girl's patron. She wants to bankroll Squirrel Girl's superheroics and Doreen agrees. They put their heads together and pondered ways to enhance Squirrel Girl's abilities and... 

... Came up with an all new flying Squirrel Girl costume!!


It's actually a combination jetpack/gliding apparatus. And it glides through the air like a hot knife through butter!

Of course, Melissa Morbeck is actually a secret villain who will cause nothing from trouble for Squirrel Girl in subsequent issues. But it was awful nice of her to give our girl a costume upgrade before she begins causing mischief!
