Just like Saturday Night Live said Marvel Studios is “unfailable,” the comic book side of the company may be feeling a little bit of that power. Case in point? Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, the newest ongoing series from Marvel Comics, debuting in January 2015.

Announced Monday on EW.com ahead of New York Comic Con, the character who has beaten Doctor Doom, Thanos, and Wolverine (again, yeah, seriously) and quickly became a fan favorite is getting her own ongoing from writer Ryan North and artist Erica Henderson.

EW didn’t have anything directly from the creators, but says the comic will begin with Squirrel Girl’s next big adventure - college. Of course, she’ll also be fighting “cosmic” level threats, because why not from a girl with squirrel powers and squirrel sidekicks that she talks to?

Unbeatable Squirrel Girl continues Marvel’s quest to use every adjective in the dictionary in front of character names for titles, and joins Spider-Woman, Angela, Elektra, Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, Black Widow, and Storm in the female solo series category, nearly getting Marvel to double digits there.
