Who Is Squirrel Girl? Go Behind the Scenes of 'Marvel Rising: Initiation' with Milana Vayntrub

'Marvel Rising: Initiation' will debut on Disney XD on August 13!

Last week, Dove Cameron gave you an insider's look at Ghost-Spider/Gwen Stacy in the upcoming "Marvel Rising: Initiation." Today, Milana Vayntrub introduces young fans to Squirrel Girl/Doreen Green and her best friend Tippy-Toe in a brand-new featurette. Get acquainted with Squirrel Girl below and don't miss Squirrel Girl and Tippy-Toe in action when "Marvel Rising: Initiation" debuts on Disney XD on August 13!

Doreen Green aka Squirrel Girl is the uber-positive, hilarious best friend and teammate of Ms. Marvel. With advanced computer skills, enhanced strength, agility, durability, and senses of a squirrel, Doreen (along with her squirrel partner, Tippy-Toe!), is primed and ready to become a successful hero.

In "Marvel Rising: Initiation," Gwen Stacy AKA Ghost-Spider, wrongly accused of a crime she didn’t commit, seeks justice and to clear her name. Unfortunately, her dad is not only Captain of the NYPD, but spearheading the manhunt! To make matters worse, other young heroes - Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake and Patriot are after Ghost-Spider as well. But, as the chase to uncover the truth winds down— a darker threat looms along the horizon, and very soon, these heroes will need to put aside their differences and work together as a team.
