Nancy is trapped in the top of the statue of liberty while Squirrel Girl and a whole bunch of other heroes fighting invading dinosaurs. She has company and as they sit and wait for rescue conversation turns to favourite superheroes and who might save them. Nancy says Squirrel will, and one of the group, an old woman says she has a story about Squirrel Girl from when she was a young girl. Nancy protests that Squirrel Girl isn't old enough but the old lady continues and we get a Kirbyesque looking story.
Nancy is somewhat disbelieving of this story and then a younger man says he has a real story about her, that involved clones. Someone stole her blood and made a clone of her. The clone took a Red Squirrel theme versus Squirrel Girls grey and they sometimes teamed up and sometimes they fought. Oh and also Squirrel acquired a costume that was an alien symbiote. One of the others says to him, "dude, I think you're thinking of Spider-Man" and the man says oh yes, he totally was.
Nancy looks pained as says people don't have to make up stories about her. But another pipes up saying he has done legit research on her. He describes the Squirrel Girl Nancy knows well, but then says she's from the future. "What." says Nancy flatly. He tells an exciting tale of how she came back in time and teamed up with Nick Fury to take down an army of Doom-bots. Squirrel Girl says Doom's weakness is his ego and his Doom-bots will be built to share them. She uses her robot to search it's database for a way to get to him and finds "a fear of squirrels and the ability to be easily vexed by squirrels."
|Many Squirrel Girls appear!|
Nancy: "I swear, the internet is like 5% true facts, 85% misinformation and 10% local moms with one weird trick that doesn't even friggin' work".
After another couple of interjections, one in the style of Peanuts (which includes a "totally nuts" pun) and the other of The Dark Knight Returns, Nancy has had enough. She gives a speech about the real Squirrel Girl pointing out the incongruities in their stories. One of them asks what makes her so sure, "are you, like her roomate or something?"
Nancy denies it then Squirrel Girl pops her head through the window having sorted the dinosaurs out with the other heroes. "Oh hey Nancy! How the heck have you been?" she says to a surprised Nancy. Later with the group safely out, Nancy says she hopes being taken hostage isn't going to be a regular thing now she's friends with Squirrel Girl. Squirrel Girl says she was just in the wrong place in the wrong time.
We start the next chapter with Nancy wearing the "suit" of squirrels again. She says she doesn't think they are helping her fight and when she punches the squirrels move out of the way. Disappointed Squirrel Girl has this confirmed by Tippy-Toe. She said she could have told her before as she had the idea to farm out Squirrel Suits to make Nancy "the general of an unstoppable army of Squirrel Scouts??"
They are standing outside the bank that got robbed in volume one. The suddenly a humanoid hippo appears and he plans to rob it. In a flurry of terrible hippo puns another hero arrives to help Squirrel Girl defeat "Hippo the Hippo" Another man jumps in to help as well. As the newcomer fights Hippo, the first one introduces himself to Squirrel Girl as "Chipmunk Hunk". She is super pleased when she realises he is another hero who can talk to animals.

Squirrel Girl says she can't let him do that, but with his size and strength he should be working for a demolitions company, knocking down buildings for a job. She tells him to search the internet and he should find something. Mollified, Hippo leaves, saying he'll give it a go but if it fails he's going to come back and rob the bank. And he is gone, once again Squirrel Girl solves a problem with her power of helpfulness.
The other hero introduces himself as "Koi Boi" friend to Chipmunk Hunk and similar "protector of the scales of justice". Nancy almost sighs, and says to Squirrel Girl who she calls Doreen that the two men are only wearing domino masks and takes Chipmunk Hunk's off to reveal Tomas Lara-Perez, from their class. She says she doesn't know Koi Boi's real name but she's seen him with Tomas in their databases 101 class. Koi Boi says his name is Ken Shiga, "can we please go somewhere less public to talk about this?"
|Nancy is not fooled by the usual disguises.|
Squirrel Girl says they'll try some more animals and as they work their way round the zoo in the lion house their keeper has a heart attack and they escape through the open zoo. Before Squirrel Girl can spring into action, a humanoid squirrel appears and picks up the lions and tosses them back in their pen. Later Nancy and Squirrel Girl see a news headline online that "Girl Squirrel" saved the zoo.
|"Girl Squirrel" saves the day.|
In fact they get so upset they quit the comic. This chapter ends with Girl Squirrel trying to whisper into Nancy's ear but Mew growls at her and sends her packing. Nancy wakes up just missing her and says to Mew she wishes she could talk, "I gotta met someone named 'Cat Brat'" and kissed her head, bringing chapter two to a close.
The next day Squirrel Girl and Nancy arrive late to their databases class because they broke up several fights on the way there. The teacher asks her to tell the class what durability is and she answers correctlt much to his annoyance. Then the teacher starts ranting angrily about the sloppiness of students today and one of the students accuses him of selling grades for cash. A brawl starts up which she, Tomas and Ken try to break up.
|Wikipedia knows all.|
Squirrel Girl: "Can I just say that it's really satisfying to find out that someone you didn't like for kinda no reason might've been evil all along??"
They debate how they might stop her and Squirrel Girl says to Nancy that they should ask the person who Nancy writes fanfiction about a feline version of - "Cat Thor". Tomas queries the idea that they are going to walk into Avengers tower just like that. But off they go, and Squirrel Girl rings the doorbell and is let in.
Inside she introduces them to the Avengers, but Ratotoskr has gotten to them as well. Squirrel Girl tries to tell them what has happened but gets mocked and ends up knocking them all out. Thor isn't there, but they phone him up on Captain America's phone. A quick note, Thor at the moment is in fact a woman because male Thor was judged unworthy of Mjolinir. He is still fighting with her, but at the moment, she is Thor and he is "Odinson".
|Thor and Odinson in the breakfast battle.|
Odinson: "This is no mere smack-talking squirrel. Heed my warning well: Ratatoskr's arsenal includes god-teir smack talking and she wields it readily".
She is the ultimate troll and will ruin humanity and Squirrel Girl alone must stop her. "I kinda thought you might help??" responds Squirrel Girl. He says that another bears the title of Thor, he doesn't know much about her except the fact, "she kisses well".
Squirrel Girl and the others travel to his and Thor's location where they have finally calmed things by tieing everyone up. Thor says they must go to Asgard and restore the barriers which are supposed to hold Ratatoskr. They decide to split up, Nancy and Tippy-Toe will go to Asgard with Thor and Odinson to fill them in on what Ratatoskr is like now and Squirrel Girl, Tomas and Ken will stay on Earth to fight Ratatoskr. And off Nancy goes.
Later Squirrel Girl, Tomas and Ken find Ratatoskr. Ratatoskr denies being Ratatoskr asking them what she has supposed to have done, "do I visit their homes in a single night like some demented Santa Claus, using my special talents to inject messages in their brains, messages that I'm sustaining still, even as we speak?" Squirrel Girl says she is saying that sarcastically but actually that sounds exactly like what's been going on.
|Ratatoskr's true form.|
The next chapter starts with a page of Nancy's pencil drawn comic showing Cat-Thor versus the Frost Giant Schnauzers. Then we join her, Tippy-Toe, Thor and Odinson arrving in Asgard. Nancy shows them "the great seer Wikipedia" and its information on Rataoskr. Thor reads it and says that it says if they donated now his fundraiser would be over in an hour. "Yeah he does that" says Nancy.
The information is valuable, but they can't figure out how she escaped in the first place. Her prison was forged by Odin himself and the only way out would be through Asgardian manipulation and they don't know of an Asgardian who would do that. Then Loki appears and laconically says it might be his fault. The others stare at him. "What?! I said 'my bad'" he protests.
Back with Squirrel Girl, Tomas and Ken, Ratatoskr has hold of the two men and mind controls them into attacking Squirrel Girl. Fortunately Squirrel Girl swiped Spider-Man's web shooters when she knocked out the Avengers and is able to stop Tomas and Ken without hurting them. She fires a tonne of web fluid at Ratatoskr and wraps her in the webbing. But she uses her mind control to get a crowd of people to pul the webbing off her and Tomas and Ken get free too.
Irritated Odison asks Loki how he was responsible for Ratatoskr's escape. He says he had many schemes on the go and some took centuries to ripen:
Loki: "And when a fella has so many irons in the fire, it's clear even the most harshest judges of character must forgive him for forgetting one teeny, weeny, tiney, winey little scheme. And therefore in conclusion, that's how come it's not my fault Ratatoskr escaped."
Loki says he doesn't want Midgard destroyed so he'll help them out, but they won't be able to get close to her without her using her powers against them. Nancy has an idea though. They can block their ears and use bluetooth to communicate with each other.
Back on Earth, Ratatoskr has Squirrel Girl being held by several people including Tomas and Ken. Ratatoskr says they are loving this because part of them resent Squirrel Girl for being "superior". Squirrel Girl says using mind control doesn't count, "the real Chipmunk Hunk and Koi Boi wouldn't do this." Ratatoskr is about to whisper in Squirrel Girl's ear when Nancy, Tippy-Toe, Thor, Odinson and Lokui appear.
|But inspirational speeches should always work!|
Then suddenly Ratatoskr is engulfed in rainbow light and disappears. The crowd stops attacking and mills about wondering how they got there. Loki says he saved the day. Squirrel Girl's speech did work, Ratatoskr had to direct her attention to reinforcing her mind control and took her attention away from the "Bifrost blocker she had going". Loki noticed and sent down the Bifrost and now Ratatoskr is back in prison in Asgard and Midgard is saved.
He has returned his head to normal for which Odinson is grateful. Loki says those who were mind controlled will feel way more jealous than normal for afew day but will be OK. "We did it. We did it!" grins Nancy. Afew days later Squirrel Girl, Nancy, Tomas and Ken are hanging out and Tippy-Toe is teaching them how to speak squirrel. Squirrel Girl says if they keep up this level of progress they'll be "unbeatable."
