    Living with Doreen Green, Nancy is repeatedly drawn into the superheroic events that occur in her roommate's daily life, including being held hostage in a bank robbery, and trapped in the Statue of Liberty during a superhero fight. During Ratatoskr's attempt to take over New York, Nancy travels to Asgard to seek a solution to Ratatoskr's menace. There, she meets and becomes friends with Loki. She is responsible for figuring out a way to counteract Ratatoskr's powers using bluetooth earplugs. When Squirrel Girl gets sent back in time, Nancy is the only person who remembers her, and is able to convince Doctor Doom to take her back to find her friend. When Doom inevitably turns on them, she joins in the efforts of other time-displaced students to defeat him. After he is defeated she returns with Doreen to the present, where Howard the Duck tries to steal her cat.
