Read all the main character descriptions posted below...
Doreen Green - aka - Squirrel Girl : Doreen is a totally empowered fangirl who has the incredible powers of a ... squirrel. Her greatest quality is her optimism and her best friend is a pet squirrel, Tippy Toe.
Craig Hollis - aka - Mr. Immortal : Craig can't die ... or so he says. Although Craig’s superpower seems amazing, he hasn’t made use of it at all — he figures if he has all the time in the world to learn how to do anything heroic, what’s the rush?
Dwayne Taylor - aka - Night Thrasher : Brilliant and noble and maybe a bit full of himself, Dwayne is a shameless self-promoter and entrepreneur who also deeply believes in justice.
Robbie Baldwin - aka - Speedball : Robbie is an impulsive people-pleaser with a misplaced sense of confidence who throws kinetic balls of energy that are completely out of control.
Zack Smith - aka - Microbe : Zack is a shy hypochondriac who has the ability to talk to germs, which can tell him where you've been, what you ate and who you hung out with. It's impossible to keep secrets around him.
Deborah Fields - aka - Debrii : Deborah is proud, funny and quick witted. Confidently out as a lesbian, Deborah is a low-level telekinetic — very low. Like, she-can-move-a-paper-cup low.
