Pick any three characters, from any genre, that you want one you team in a post-apocalyptic world. Ok. Well the first thought is, I want three badasses on my side, right? But when you really think about it, what do you need to survive? You need shelter, water and food. So rather than just picking three warriors that are going to protect me by killing everything in sight, I’m picking a diverse group that can cover all of bases.

Optimus Prime

My first pick provides protection, or shelter. I don’t think anyone is going to come mess with a group that’s protected by a giant sword-wielding robot. Not to mention, in truck form, Prime provides a serviceable home as well as a means of transportation. Whether we need to fight or run away, Optimus Prime is definitely someone I want on my side.


Water is scarce, huh? Not anymore. Storm’s ability to control the weather is probably the most valuable tool you could have in a post apocalyptic world. Being able to make it rain on command will keep us alive. And if there are any scary apocalypsey type storms or natural disasters we have to deal with, Storm could put a stop to them quickly.

Flint Lockwood

That’s right! How’s this one for outside the box? My last pick is Flint Lockwood from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Or, more notably, his F.L.D.S.M.D.F.R. Yep, the answer for the apocalyptic food shortage is simple with the Flint Lockwood Diatonic Super Mutating Dynamic Food Replicator. And combined with Storm’s ability to control the weather, it will have plenty of water molecules to work with to provide us with food.

That's my team. I think they provide everything you need for surviving a wasteland. So I guess... I'm ready for the apocalypse.
