The year is 2134, and the post-apocalyptic landscape that has been the backdrop of so many of our favorite films has now become the world we live in. Water is scarce, the deserts are endless and there is a steady stream of deranged outlaws on my tail! To stay alive and maintain any hopes of rebuilding civilization I've got to team up with the absolute best three female characters to survive in this new and deadly world. So, who's on my post-apocalyptic survival team?

1. X23 - X-Men Series

She bad.
She bad.

Born in a laboratory and designed to be as deadly as her genetic "father" The Wolverine, X23 is a living weapon.

Why She Made the Team?

She is an expert assassin not just through hand-to-hand but she is also a crack shot as a sniper and demolition expert. So she can handle both close combat and long distant combat to help keep her team alive in this hopeless future. She is also multi-lingual which will aid in communicating with any other survivors who may not pose a deadly threat to the team. In addition to these skills she also has superhuman strength, speed, agility, reflexes, coordination, balance and endurance. An added bonus is her superhuman senses which means she will be able to smell out nearby food and water for the group to aid in their survival. Add to this her healing factor along with two claws hidden in her hands and one in her feet you have a true soldier in every sense of the word.

2. Cheetara - Thundercats

SPEED.
SPEED.

The fast warrior from the distant planet Thundera, Cheetara is a woman not to be messed with.

Why She Made the Team?

With the ability to reach a top speed of 120 MPH she is an obvious choice for recon of the local area. This could be used for multiple reasons, the first being to check for dangers heading towards her team and the second to check out any areas indicated by X23 that may hold food and water. Her top speed actually allows her to cover a mile every 30 seconds, but can not go more than a few miles at this speed without passing out due to fatigue. She additionally has a sixth sense which allows her to see events from the past and the future. This could be the edge the team needs to live from day to day in this endless wasteland. Add to this her baton which can grow to any length and shoot energy beams she is a deadly warrior with high agility and combat skills.

3. Captain Katherine Janeway - Star Trek Voyager

Making it look easy
Making it look easy

A lone Captain and her crew stranded 70,000 lightyears from the nearest ally proved to be a simple task for the future woman.

Why She Made the Team?

When you consider her character facing an unknown region of space with limited supplies and no allies, an apocalyptic future would be a breeze to her. A born leader who quick thinking and able to face any situation with a level head. She repeatedly faced off against and beat one of the most deadly species in the universe again and again, the Borg. Her tactical mind would be what tips the scales in the favor of her team as an crisis to her is simply a problem that has not been solved yet. If you also take into account her scientific mind and high intelligence she would aid her team in new ways to survive, even if that meant eating insects due to their high protein. She is also an accomplish weapon designer and crack shot with a gun. Add all of these attributes together and you get a deadly mix that is not to be messed with.

Closing Thoughts.

With the speed of a cheetah, the power of a wolverine and the leadership of a Starfleet Captain, this trio would be ready for any situation and be able to use their combined skills to survive any situation. Janeway would be the one primarily leading the group as she is a seasoned pro at using her teams strong points to her advantage, Cheetara would be the heart of the group who's kinder nature and compassion would help them through hard times and X23 would be their key to finding what they need to survive in this world.
