New Warriors TV Show Gets Character Descriptions, Squirrel Girl in the Lead
We now have a character description for the upcoming Marvel TV series New Warriors and its official, not only will they have Squirrel Girl in this iteration, she’ll also be taking in a leader role for the series.
Check out which member of the New Warriors would make an appearance in the TV series below:
Doreen Green (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 (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 (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 (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 (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 (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.
And would you believe that these guys all had critical roles to play in Marvel’s epic history. Squirrel Girl is currently a member of the U.S.Avengers and had even been a part of Luke Cage’s New Avengers team, where she was hired to be the nanny of Danielle Cage.
Also happy that they’ll be adding in the classics like Speedball and Night Thrasher in the mix. Would have been really, really cool if they managed to sneak in Richard Rider aka Nova in this series.
No release date yet for New Warriors but rumors are suggesting that this would be coming out sometime in 2018.
