Well folks, it's been over two months and a hell of a lot of time travel-related issues, but I'm FINALLY BACK!! For this GRAND RE-OPENING of my profile, I'm doing the most excellent of contests and selecting three hardcore characters to help me survive and thrive in the wilderness of a post-apocalyptic wasteland! Without further ado, here they are!
#1: Tommy Oliver (Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers)
Hey, you guys did say a character from ANY SERIES, so my first go-to guy is none other than the Green Ranger himself! Why should I pick Tommy to help me out in this desert of death and doom?! Well, for starters, he can straight-up murder people with his fists, and that's without morphing!
I've been caching that gif for SO LONG! What do you get when you mix an already awesome martial artist with the powers of otherworldly suits and giant fighting mechs? (This is the part where all 90's kids put your hands up!) You get an INVINCIBLE fighter with the willpower and means to take on literally any wastelander who croses our path! That, and Tommy is a pretty legit dude anyway. He'll be able to motivate the group to survive the roughest situations around, as well as providing entertainment, because there really is nothing cooler than watching someone punch a car and win that fight. Tommy Oliver is a lock for the first spot! But who could possibly measure up to him for the next two slots?!
#2: Wufei Chang (Mobile Suit Gundam Wing)
I can only assume everybody will go completely psycho to survive the apocalypse, and thus I need as many hardcore fighters as I can find! It is for this reason that Gundam Pilot 05, A.K.A. Wufei Chang, earns the second spot on my list! This Chinese warrior is a master of close-combat fighting, either hand-to-hand or with a sword, AND he's a Gundam pilot, which means I have TWO MECHS ON MY TEAM!!! Did you really think I'd fight fair in a battle to the death?!
The desert is full of crazies who want to dismember, disembowel, and disassemble me, so I want two trained fighters on my side, and it doesn't hurt to have a pair of giant fighting robots with them! However, people cannot live on fighting strength alone, so my final apocalypse team member is...
#3: Poison Ivy (DC Comics Universe)
Now, I know what you might be thinking. How could I possibly think teaming up with a mind-controlling, plant-obsessed, toxin-producing femme fatale be a good idea if I'm trying to survive?! Let's look at the facts. First, she's a total badass who can use pheromones to get other crazies to look the other way, fight each other, or even kill themselves. Seems useful, right? But that's not all! I already have two killers on the team! The most important skill of hers is the ability to grow ANY PLANT IN THE WORLD! With Poison Ivy growing crops of food (as well as weaponized thickets and other dastardly plants), my team (plus anyone we deem worthy to join us) will have no trouble of surviving for the long haul whatsoever! Oh, and we'll need to repopulate, so her gender is relevant too. No total sausage fest could possibly sustain the human race!
So that's the team! Let me know what you think, and I look forward to reading about all of your teams too! Good luck out there, wastelanders!
