It's the Zombie All-Star Team!

That's right folks, just because I can, and because there isn't much else to write about (I mean, how much can you say about I Am Legend?), today I'm putting together my ultimate undead dream team. Pointless? Yep. Fun? Absolutely. So without further ado, here are the ten walking cadavers I'd want on my side if I ever needed to besiege a farmhouse or shopping mall...



BUB: A natural leader. Plus, his military background comes in handy. How many zombies do you know that can handle an automatic weapon?








TARMAN: He's got the power of speech, even if his known vocabulary seems to be confined to two words, "more" and "brains".







KAREN COOPER: Killed her mom with a garden trowel, and had her dad's arm for lunch. Scariest. Kid. Ever.






FLYBOY: Great sense of direction, and won't let a silly thing like a detached ankle stop him from getting around.





FIDO: Whether you need to get rid of your annoying neighbor or put away the dinnerware, he's your man!









BABY SELWYN: Zombie baby. 'Nuff said.








CONQUISTADOR ZOMBIE: As groady as he may appear, we should only look as good after being dead for 400 years.








MICHAEL JACKSON: Admit it, he looked pretty cool in that "Thriller" video. Hide the kids!







HENRIETTA: It takes a special breed to go toe-to-toe with Ash. She'll swallow your soul!





ED: Finally, a zombie I wouldn't mind sitting down with for a pint or two.

Would I be able to borrow Fido every now and then to clean up the dog poop? ;)

I'll consider it. But don't even THINK about drinks with Zombie Ed. He's all mine.

My zombie team would include Darby Jones, Nathan Grantham, Simon Garth, Abercrombie, and all the Beta zombies from Night of the Creeps (except for Brad cuz he's such a dick.)

B-Sol said...

I should mention that I originally had four more who didn't quite make the final cut of ten. Think of them as the second-string players: Big Daddy, the Fat Lady zombie from Dawn '04, Dr. Block from Planet Terror, and Don Harris (the dad from 28 Weeks Later).

On a strictly visual level, Iggy Pop should definitely be added to that second string.

B-Sol said...

LOL Sure why not? The "zombies" in 28 Weeks Later are technically still alive, so why not open it up to other living, zombie-like people?

Jo said...

Haha, I think you could refer to half of young hollywood as living zombies. ;)

Great list. Love Bob and Selwyn! But the obvious... Where's Jason from (at least) part 6 of Friday the 13th? Thought everybody loved him.. Jason "Lives" you know;)

I've always had a hard time considering Jason a zombie. He's just an indestructible slasher. That's never been scientific proof of his zombie nature. I need more conclusive evidence ;-)
