Squirrel Girl was created by Steve Ditko and Will Murray.
Squirrel Girl is a peppy and hyperactive teen, whose energy seems almost endless. She seems extremely sure of herself, and almost deluded as to the fact that despite her age, she can be a powerful superhero. She also is seen to like to make people laugh. Doreen is a very trustworthy person who loves to do good. Kamala Khan says in the "Kamala Khanfidential" shorts, she makes training fun.

Squrriel Girl's name could be seen on one of the news tickers promoting her new line of perfume. Later, when Spider-Man checked if he was still the number one superhero in New York City, he's shocked to find himself listed on the 15th place of a poll. Behind Dazzler, Hawkeye, Nova, and Squirrel Girl. While he knows Hawkeye and Nova, he wonders who Squirrel Girl is. She tries to stop Juggernaut's rampage with her Squirrel Army, which she succeeds. However, with collateral damage to the streets, where Spider-Man swings in and scolds at her for so, saying it doesn't make her a hero, but she said that people can and ran away into the distance.
In the episode "Nightmare on Christmas", she appears in a S.H.I.E.L.D base hibernating with her squirrels when Spider-Man comes in and asks her where his teammates are.
In the episode "S.H.I.E.L.D Academy", she's seen as a student at the Triskelion.
In the episode "Burrito Run", Squirrel Girl sneaks out after hours for late-night burritos with Spider-Man and Power Man, and along the way, they must contend with some of Spider-Man's enemies.
In the comics, Squirrel Girl was originally a joke character, in an adventure that saw her team up with Iron Man, and with her help, actually managed to defeat Doctor Doom with her squirrel sidekicks. Since then, a running gag throughout her appearances shows her being able to beat some of the most powerful villains and threats in the Marvel Universe, including Thanos, M.O.D.O.K., Galactus, Ronan the Accuser, Mandarin, Terrax, Bi-Beast, Abomination, Ultron, Fin-Fang Foom, and even Deadpool. Joining the obscure hero team the Great Lakes Avengers, Doreen eventually rose to prominence after she realized the team wasn't pulling their own weight. She would be hired by Jessica Jones and Power Man as a nanny to look after their infant daughter Danielle Cage. Doreen was incredibly responsible with this task, fiercely protecting Danielle from many threats intent on kidnapping her.
