Imagine being caught up in the apocalypse, you'd want the best team you could get to help ensure survival, right? I'd think that having any fictional character at your disposal helps sway those odds in your favor.

The Brain

Tony Stark. Genius Billionaire Playboy Philanthropist.

Tony Stark was injured by a close proximity bomb detonation but was saved by his own Arc Reactor technology. He later put that tech to use and created Iron Man. Hopefully Tony can add survivalist to his title.

What He Can Do

Tony was smart enough to not only be the head of a mega-weapons corporation but he created the Iron Man suit while in terrorist custody. Being a business man, it's not question that he's a first-rate negotiator. In an apocalyptic event, you'd most likely come across other small groups with similar goals, and bartering skills could. come in handy

Why He'd Be A Great Apocalypse-Pal

He'd be great to have with you in an apocalyptic event. Maybe with the right collection of tools and parts, he could build another great piece of technology, after all he did build the suit in a cave....with a box of scraps.

The Bada***ery

Katniss Everdeen

Katniss was a citizen of District 12 of Panem, but when her younger sister, Primrose, was chosen as tribute in the 74th annual Hunger Games, she volunteered in her place.

What She Can Do.

She is skilled in archery, hunting, and and survival. Her might was shown when she

Endured almost 2 full Hunger Games before being rescued to lead the resistance against the Capitol.

Why She'd Be A Great Apocalypse-Pal

Why is she a good companion for the apocalypse? I think a better question would be why not! Katniss is capable of hunting and gathering for food, along with her extensive list of survival skills that got her through the games.

The Dwight

That's right, the Assistant TO the Regional Manager at the Scranton branch of Dunder Mifflin. Who wouldn't want this tornado of anger as an Apocalypse buddy?

What He Can Do

Not only is he a purple belt in Goju-Ryu karate, but he is a self proclaimed survival expert. Dwight is also the owner of a massive arsenal of weapons and tools that we see throughout the series.

  • Nunchaku
  • Pepper Spray
  • Bo Staff
  • Molotov Cocktails
  • Katanas
  • Handcuffs
  • Throwing Stars
  • Nightstick
  • Brass Knuckles
  • Crossbow (+ Crossbow Firing Range)

Dwight lives on his family's beet farm, giving him experience in farming. He also harbors loves for science fiction, paintball, and muscle cars.

Why He'd Be A Great Apocalypse-Pal.

Along with being both annoying and entertaining, Dwight would provide the necessary skills and tools to help us outlast the end.
