Marvel: Crisis Protocol – Squirrel Girl & Gwenpool Coming Soon
If Squirrel Girl isn’t threat 10 then we riot alongside the fourth-wall breaking Gwenpool! Marvel: Crisis Protocol is about to get weird.
Atomic Mass Games has announced a pair of characters coming to the tabletop for Marvel: Crisis Protocol. And really, this pretty much sums it up:
“Unbeatable and inexplicable. Squirrel Girl & Gwenpool, coming soon to #MarvelCrisisProtocol!”
Squirrel Girl And Gwenpool
Unbeatable and inexplicable, indeed! This is actually quite the pairing. If you’re familiar with these characters then you’re probably excited for their arrival. If you’re not familiar with them then you’re in for trip!
Squirrel Girl is no joke. She’s got the power to communicate with squirrels and she’s been a member of both the Avengers and the Great Lakes Avengers. She’s also unbeatable. Now, how she pursues victory might be a little different than what you’re expecting…but she’s tackled the likes of Doctor Doom, Deadpool, MODOK, Wolverine, and Thanos! Squirrel Girl has even convinced Galactus to not devour Earth — I’d call that a win.
Now, as for Gwenpool…if you thought Deadpool was known for breaking the fourth-wall, buckle-up. Gwenpool knows she’s in a comic and claims to be from “the real world.” She doesn’t just talk to the reader, she can literally break the fourth wall and has even “edited/retconned” her own comic. It’s a thing. She’s also a super fan and has all the meta-knowledge about the other Marvel characters which leads to shenanigans.
I’m not entirely sure how these two characters are going to play out on the tabletops of Marvel: Crisis Protocol but I’m sure it’s gonna be weird however Atomic Mass Games implements them. I mean…just read the back of their box:
At least SOMEONE at Atomic Mass Games gets Gwenpool on a deep, deep level.
Players will turn the laws of reality into an open negotiation with the Squirrel Girl and Gwenpool Character Pack. This duo of fourth-wall-breakers will suspend disbelief as they bend the usual flow of gameplay to suit their own unique playstyles. Equipped with Team Tactic Cards that make them perfect tank-busters, this duo comes ready to warp the battlefield into a far stranger place to play.
Up for pre-order now…things are about to get weird.
