Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Post-Apocalyptic Battle Royale Edition


Some years ago, my friend and co-worker Tommy often used to muse about his zombie apocalypse team, who he would and would not want to bring along in the even of the end of the world.  Sadly, I seldom made the cut for survival After The End.  Here on the legendary intarwebz, you can’t swing a dead whelk without hitting a zombie quiz, cartoon or musing, which can start a thought process in the back of your head.  For my part, given the choice, I’d ditch Zuckerberg, Woody from ‘Cheers’ and even (regretfully) the lovely Emma Stone and ally myself with Jennifer Walters, the She-Hulk, who combines brains, brawn and steely resolve in one package.  Savvy enough to know her way around the world, clever enough to have a meaningful conversation with, and able to use a Mack truck as a baseball bat, she seems to be the perfect partner in crime for a world neither of us ever made, which in turn begs a query…
