It’s a battle of the sexes as two Marvel superheroes face off in a question that’s been asked countless times before: “Who would win in a fight?” Today we have Deadpool vs Squirrel Girl, and this time around the fan-favourite hero Doreen Green is running against a man with a serious killing track record. Who will win in a fight: Squirrel Girl vs Deadpool?
Squirrel Girl: Biography
Squirrel Girl aka Doreen Green made her debut in Marvel Super-Heroes (Vol. 2) #8 which was published in January 1992. She was created by Will Murray and Steve Ditko. You can recognize Doreen by her red/brown hair and her three-foot prehensile tail.
In terms of height, she is 5′3″ or 1.6 m and weighs around 135 lbs or 61 kg. She was born in Los Angeles, California but later moved to New York. A fun fact is that she had a daughter at one point with Deadpool which had the name Squirrelpool.
In December 1990, the world got to know Deadpool aka Wade Wilson for the first time in the comic New Mutants #98. He was created by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld. He is the perfect definition of an anti-hero. Wade hides behind smart ass comments and always does whatever he wants. But in the end, he does what is right. Well, most of the time…
You can recognize Deadpool by his red and black costume. But when he is not wearing his hero outfit, Wade is covered in scars because of his cancer. Other than that, he is 188 cm or 6’22” tall and weighs 210 lbs / 95 kg.

Power Grids Compared
Durability: Squirrel Girl 7 vs Deadpool 4
It’s possible that you’re thinking this is a typo, but it is not. When it comes to Durability, Squirrel received an absolutely flawless grade. Doreen has the ability to recover at a far quicker pace than any human, but she also has a steel jaw, which you might almost construe as a literal interpretation. She has the ability to bite through steel in a split second.
Deadpool only received a 4 out of 7 for Durability and this really amazed us. This is a very low score for a character that is actually immortal. Deadpool’s main power is his healing factor. So Deadpool is actually impossible to kill as Thanos also cursed him with immortality (to keep him away from Death). Another nice thing to know is that Deadpool is invulnerable to telepathic attacks.
Energy: Squirrel Girl 7 vs Deadpool 1
We have a considerably tougher time trusting Marvel’s assessment of Squirrel Girl’s energy level, which they rated her a 7 out of 7, despite the fact that there is no evidence to support it. She does not possess the power or capacity to project or control energy in the same way that some other heroes or villains do.
Deadpool has the lowest score when it comes to energy and this makes complete sense. He doesn’t have any powers which are energy-related.
Fighting Skills: Squirrel Girl 7 vs Deadpool 6
Doreen is a warrior who comes close to being flawless. She is physically powerful, she is swift, and she is intelligent; nevertheless, we will provide some other instances of this later in this article. During her battles, she can always rely on an army of squirrels to defend her, particularly her best buddies Monkey Joe and Tippy Toe, who are her closest allies. And let’s not forget about her 3-foot-long tail and knuckle spike, both of which are quite useful during hand-to-hand fighting.
If we were Marvel, we would have given Deadpool a 7 out of 7 but unfortunately, he only got a 6. From what we have seen and read in the past, he is one of the best assassins and fighters in the Marvel galaxy when it comes to hand to hand combat. He has no equal when it comes to mastering a sword and he rarely misses a shot.
Intelligence: Squirrel Girl 7 vs Deadpool 2
Squirrel Girl has shown that she is not just a skilled but also an intellectual fighter, as seen by the astounding number of opponents she has vanquished thus far. Here are a few examples: Among the villains are Thanos, the Mandarin, Wolverine, Deadpool and Ego The Living Planet. Other characters include Captain America, Black Widow, Spider-Man, and more. Doreen is a computer science master’s degree holder, in addition to her alter identity Squirrel Girl.
Intelligence is indeed a pain point for Deadpool. He is not the sharpest tool in the shed and he can be quite mentally unstable from time to time. But if being irritating is a superpower, Deadpool would have gotten a perfect score. He is able to annoy every person in the Marvel Universe and that is actually his most favourite hobby. He enjoys that more than killing them.
Speed: Squirrel Girl 7 vs Deadpool 7
Squirrel Girl’s speed is a mystery to us. With the enhanced power in her legs, she can jump very far, and she can also use her claws on her hands and toes as a climbing tool to climb almost anything. The only thing we know for sure is that she is faster than the fastest person on the planet. Nevertheless, Marvel rated her 7 out of 7 for speed.
Speed is again a big surprise for us as Deadpool received the maximum but there’s not much evidence to back this up. Fandom has even stated that he can only run at peak human speed so he doesn’t even have superhuman speed. The only reason why Marvel could have given him a 7 is that Deadpool owns a teleportation device that he can use at any time.
Strength: Squirrel Girl 7 vs Deadpool 4
Squirrel Girl’s strength ranges from 800 pounds to 25 tons, according to the Marvel Universe’s Official Handbook: Avengers 2005 #1. Other than that, she has nothing to fall back on when things become tough.
One thing that Deadpool never counts on is his strength. He can lift up to 800 pounds but that is it. During his fights, he mainly relies on his superhuman agility, stamina and reflexes. So against some enemies, his punches just feel like they are being tickled by Deadpool.
Although we would have expected more of an equal fight between the two. Squirrel Girl just has the perfect record and this is something that Deadpool can’t beat even though he is considered to be immortal. If we compare total scores. Deadpool only has 24 out of 42 while Squirrel Girl has 42 points. No wonder that Doreen is called the UNBEATABLE Squirrel Girl.
