Not The Brightest Match In The Box

It occurred to me last week, Squirrel Girl went on a date with Johnny Storm. I didn't think anything of it at the time, since it was part of a montage of failed dates for her, but after the fact. . .

Strange enough that Johnny would have a profile on an Internet dating site, but isn't he in a relationship with Medusa right now? Granted, Johnny isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, but Medusa doesn't seem the sort to respond to that chicanery well. Although it's hard to tell with her these days. She seems to vacillate between this kindly, diplomatic ruler who says all the right things, to this occasionally brutally indifferent ruler who can barely be bothered to disguise her contempt for non-Terrigen altered people (especially with regards to maybe, possibly, getting rid of the damn Mists drifting across the world and killing mutants).

I suppose Medusa might shrug it off, especially since Johnny botched the date so spectacularly, but if she doesn't, it could get dicey for the Torch. Jim Hammond might go back to being the only Human Torch alive, which would probably make James Robinson super happy, at least.
