During an attempted armed robbery at the campus' bank, which was thwarted by Squirrel Girl, Nancy deduced her roommate's secret identity due to the fact that one of the rodents she was using was Tippy-Toe, Doreen's pet.[4] Later that day, Nancy confronted Doreen regarding her heroic alter-ego, and became her confidante.[5] Since then, she has helped Doreen in several adventures.
