Having recently reviewed the latest issue of DCeased (which has a killer title and tries a new spin on the “zombie superhuman” genre, but pales in comparison to the gorn and black humor of ‘Marvel Zombies’), I’ve been thinking about how terrifying an undead Batman would be.  If you presuppose the “zombies remember their lives without morals or restraints” part of the equation, undead Bruce Wayne is a real terror.  Then again, the idea of Spider-Man unrestrained and ignoring his conscience might be worse, what with the super-strength and agility and all, leading us to today’s decomposing query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) leans towards Spider-Man over Batman in nearly all things, but in this case, I’d rather have the Darknight Dead-tective than your Friendly Neighborhood Corpse, asking: Would you rather face Zombie Batman or Zombie Spider-Man?  (Show your work!)

Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

  1. In this particular case, Batman. At least I feel I could kinda have a chance because Zombies tend to be slow, not smart and he has no real superpowers.
