It's Science, Don't Argue With It

Back in the day, I had a professor whose specialty was flying squirrels. Most of his work involved trying to suss out the physiology behind those flaps of skin they use for wings, and what advantage they conveyed. If I recall right, the gliding wasn't much faster than running down the trunk of one tree and across the ground to the other. And the gliding didn't help much in predator avoidance because owls can still easily pick a flying squirrel out of the air. The advantage of powered flight over gliding.

What I'm saying is, now that Squirrel Girl has her flying squirrel suit, I want her to fight the Owl. Presumably he's recovered from his bizarre information overload in the San Francisco stint of Waid and Samnee's Daredevil run, and it's time to get back on the field.  And here's this Squirrel Girl, with the temerity to invade his skies? Can't be allowed, no sir.

That would be pretty darned epic.
