She's not a big name, but Squirrel Girl has defeated many of the most powerful Marvel characters. And why not? She has the powers of a squirrel and a girl! She has a knack for taking out some of the most powerful villains in the Marvel Universe. Time travelers, dark sorcerers, mutants, and beings of pure energy arise to challenge both heroes and villains, alike, and only one hero has risen to the occasion every single time. That's right, when Squirrel Girl battles a villain, she always wins. 

A young squirrel/lady mutant with the ability to communicate with rodents, Squirrel Girl first appeared among the Great Lakes Avengers and now has her own run of comics. Her list of victories is more than impressive - it's practically unreal. She's taken down the likes of Deadpool, Doctor Doom, Kraven the Hunter, and even Thanos, Destroyer of Worlds. 

While the spunky, positive Doreen Green doesn't always succeed in hiding her tail, she always aims to resolve conflicts with minimal violence in The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. That's even more impressive considering all the Squirrel Girl battles that cement her status as one of the toughest nuts to crack in the history of Marvel. So before she beats up the entire Marvel Universe, let's look at some of the most powerful characters Squirrel Girl has beaten thus far.

Many of Squirrel Girl's battles happen off-panel, with readers observing only the aftermath. This only makes her more legendary. In Age of Heroes #3, the unconscious body of the gigantic Fin Fang Foom is sprawled in the streets after a brawl with Squirrel Girl. Reporters crowd around, asking what her plans are now that she's defeated the 32-foot tall dragon. Whatever or whoever it may be, they don't stand a chance.

In Great Lakes Avengers Special #1, Squirrel Girl and her sidekick Tippy Toe (you guessed it, a squirrel she talks to) demolish M.O.D.O.K. - in humiliating fashion - with a move they call the"Fuzzball Special." Squirrel Girl distracts M.O.D.O.K. from below as Tippy Toe chews up the wiring inside the Mobile Organism Designed Only for Killing. After this battle, S.H.I.E.L.D. has no choice but to take notice of Squirrel Girl and her incredible abilities.

As Squirrel Girl bids farewell to the Great Lakes Avengers in Age of Heroes #3, the team recounts many of the previous villains Squirrel Girl has defeated. Doorman casually mentions the time Squirrel Girl defeated Ego the Living Planet, a sentient world that is 4,165 miles in diameter.

Just how did the squirrel-powered heroine defeat a living planet powered by psionic energy and protected by millions of humanoid minions? The world will never know. But if Doorman says it happened, it definitely happened.

Korvac's high intelligence and cosmic powers give him godlike abilities, making him one of the most formidable and fear-inspiring villains in the Marvel Universe. Even when all the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy teamed up, they barely managed to defeat him. Yet during a casual conversation in Age of Heroes #3, Flat Man mentions how Squirrel Girl defeated him on her own. Doreen Green kicked the cosmic ass of a villain who nearly withstood the might of Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, and a dozen other Marvel heroes.
