[Question of the Week] What One Superpower Would You Want To Survive The Zombie Apocalypse?

It’s question time! We’re back with another question of the week and this time, we dive into the post-apocalypse to find out which superpower would be most useful during a zombie outbrak. But you only get one power! Don’t be greedy! Give us your answer in the comics section… We like when readers are smarter than us.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What one superpower would you want to survive the zombie apocalypse?

Lonmonster: The power to be Rick Grimes.

Bree Ogden: To rightfully and specifically answer this question, I’d have to go with the ability to fly. I think that would solve a lot of issues. Need some food but don’t have a weapon to fend off the hoards of zombies? Fly over them. Problem solved. But honestly…I wouldn’t WANT to survive the zombie apocalypse. Whenever I read an apocalyptic book or comic, or watch The Walking Dead, I always think, “Why the hell are you trying so hard to survive? What is ultimately in it for you? I don’t think your situation is getting any better. Like… ever.” I’m not a pessimist, just a realist. So maybe I should change my superpower to: being-able-to-die-really-quickly-and-painlessly-once-the-apocalypse-begins.

Jorge Solis: Super speed! You know like The Flash. If these are slow zombies, they can’t catch you. And if you’re dealing with hyper zombies, you’re still faster than them. You can save people in the nick of time, if you want to be that person in the zombie apocalypse.

Your Friendly Neighbourhood Brady: Manoman, great minds THINK alike! My first 2 thoughts WERE Flight and Speed. My next one was healing but that seems like an easy-out for this debate. So, I thought a little longer and came up with the BEST one: Resurrection Man! The ability to resurrect one’s self AND gain new powers after each time? BEST POWER EVER. I win this debate NOW! GAME OVER. Thanks for coming out.

Green Basterd: So many choices!! Ahhh just one? Can’t I just be Superman or Martian Manhunter and win everything? I would probably choose flight or speed because they’re the most practical but fuck being practical. Lets go with elemental manipulation. I could use my earth abilities to create a fortress for humanity, fire can incinerate any potential zombie threat, water will feed life into my co-survivors and air manipulation would allow me to fly. Chalk up another one for the GreenBasterd.

Shadow Jayd: Regenerative healing powers, as well as the ability to fly, would be ideal in a zombie apocalypse situation! Though generally, I’ve always entertained the thought of acquiring an evolved ability similar to empathic mimicry, wherein I could manifest the abilities of other superhumans within proximity and retain them indefinitely. Obviously a greedy choice, but I crave power!

Big J: Adamantium claws

Jimbus_Christ: The ability to stop and start time. What zombie apocalypse? I do as I please in the infinite expanse of frozen time.

  • ThunderDragoon

    Control over the elements. I’ve always wanted that power.

  • AllNightmareLong

    Wolverine’s healing would be able to fight off a zombie strain and his blood would then be used as an antigen. It worked against the Tech virus that Apocalypse infected people with. Or Wolverine vs 7 billion zombies = Wolverine wins. Superman would probably want to save the zombies

    • GothicGuido

      I thought of this too but it would really hurt to get eaten so many times lol

  • Green Lantern Ring and battery…everything you need period.

  • Mayday

    Stone flesh like Thing so zombie teeth can’t bite or breathe in water like Aquaman ’cause zombies can’t swim. Or at least be a sword swinging death machine like Hit-Girl. 😀

  • Melissa

    Superman’s Flight. You could just fly out of any situation. Fly on top of sky scrapers, fly to scope out the area, fly over traffic jams, fly over herds, what more do you need? Unless the zombies start flying too. That would kind of suck but really funny. Flying zombies!

    • Lonmonster

      Beware flying undead!

  • brandonb

    I would think that Forges power would be great in this kind of scenario. Being able to create anything would be awesome. A cure? A force field? Cloning food sources? Endless energy? A safe haven for every uninfected person? This would be my power. I also live in a small town where we would be the last to feel the affects of an outbreak, so I would have time to set things up and develop a way to search for survivors that would fit in my new oasis. Looking for police, doctors, teachers, farmers, carpenters, engineers, etc… And others with specific skill sets that would be my number one priority, second objective would be any survivors that I could save that likely need saving soon…

  • Hunt

    I would want to be imvulnerable to heat. Something like Johnny Flash or whoever. When zombies get near I could simply set myself on fire and burn those meat seekers!

  • Hunt

    And since Villian powers are not ruled out, I could get along pretty well with Solomon Grundys powers too. To them I would just be one of the gang and could sabotage them and kill them at will without them ever noticing me.

  • Beezle2112

    I would want the power to piss purified water. 🙂

  • SpellOfIniquity

    Biological manipulation.
    Eg. Being able to inflict or have immunity to any form of virus, disease or other life threatening condition.
    And because it’s biological, it wouldn’t stop there. I could peel the skin off my body and throw it at people to cure them or to sicken them. I could regenerate immediately and would only be killed in the same fashion as a zombie, by damaging my brain or removing it.
    In which case… I could either be the world’s greatest savior or the world’s greatest threat :D.

    Come on people. This one is so easy. Shadowcat’s ability to phase. Enter any building untouched. Wade right through the zombie crowd while yawning in their faces. Plus, you can phase anyone you touch to. Phase down into a well-stocked bunker. Phase through your local grocery store. A zombie will break its jaw trying to bite you. With Shadowcat’s phasing powers, you will live to celebrate many more Hanukkahs! Sorry @Lonmonster, but I aced this thought exercise.
