The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World - Shannon Hale, Dean Hale, Abigail Revasch, Tara Sands

"I'm sure Tony Stark is a very nice man who is just confused about facial hair trends."


Doreen and her new squirrel friend are discussing the Avengers, and Tony Stark isn't faring well. The squirrel also referred to him as Garbage Can Man.


This is all part of a discussion about which one of the Avengers would be the best at picking up garbage. The squirrel thinks Iron Man would be best (because he flies around in a garbage can), or maybe Daredevil. Doreen thinks Captain America would be best.
