Prompt: The year is 2134, and the post-apocalyptic landscape that had been the backdrop of so many of your favorite films has now become your world. Water is scarce, the deserts are endless and there is a steady stream of deranged outlaws on your tail. To stay alive and maintain any hopes of rebuilding civilization you've got to team up with the absolute best.
For this contest, I've chosen 3 ladies that I know will totally kick ass during the apocalypse. So here we go...
Alice: Resident Evil
If you've ever seen the Resident Evil movies then you already know that the ex-Umbrella employee/experiment is a total bad-ass b*tch. After her injection with the T-virus, Alice developed telekinesis, as well as had her natural abilities heightened. That along with her skills with both hand-to-hand combat and a variety of guns makes her an obvious pick for my survival team.
And if that knowledge isn't enough for you, please feel free to watch her in action:
Now, I had to choose between Selene and Michael for this spot on my list. Looking at who has the most brute strength, Michael, being half werewolf and half vampire, would have been the obvious choice. However, Selene has centuries of combat training and is extremely proficient with both medieval and modern weaponry. That alone makes her a better choice than Michael, but throw in the fact that she not only possesses the typical vampire strength and abilities, but she can also withstand sunlight...well is there any real competition after all?

Annabeth: Percy Jackson Series
Last but certainly not least, Annabeth Chase. I'm sort of cheating here, because even though Annabeth was also a film character, it's the book version of her I'm going to be focusing on. Because lets face it, the movie didn't do her justice.
Being the daughter of Athena, the Greek goddess of war and battle strategy, Annabeth always has a plan. She's the perfect battle strategist and you can be sure that whatever plan she comes up with will work perfectly. She's also a great warrior, using her invisibility cap and dagger to sneak up on monsters and hit them in their weakest spot. She's definitely someone you want on your side in a post-apocalyptic world.
So do you agree with my survival team? Who would you choose?
