It's the year 2134, and the apocalypse has finally arrived. Food, water, and civilization are all scarce. There's nothing but empty space and danger that lies ahead. In a situation like this, you don't know what could lie ahead... Zombies? Murderers? Bandits? It's a scary world out there, and I don't know about you, but I wouldn't be able to do it by myself. That's why I have chosen this all-star list of my favourite characters that I wouldn't hesitate to bring along.
Daryl Dixon (The Walking Dead)
Daryl Dixon is no stranger to an apocalypse situation! He's grown to be a team player and he has a great shot! His crossbow and survival skills have saved and protected as many lives as he possibly can. He acts like a "tough guy" but in reality, he truly cares about the safety of others. He would go through great lengths for anyone who puts their trust in him.
We have seen Daryl develop into the hero he is today. It's a no-brainer to have him on your side for an apocalypse. I mean, he's already the best apocalypse fighter of our time!
John Rambo (First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part 2, Rambo 3, and Rambo)
Rambo is a war veteran and former US Special Forces soldiers. He holds outstanding survival, weaponry, and combat skills. Rambo is just a normal human being, but was built to last the devastations of war. He has survived many dangerous atmospheres, especially Vietnam. As well, he is known for his spectacular rescue missions! So if things go south, you can count on Rambo to come and save you; blaze of glory style.
"Live for nothing or die for something." -Rambo
In an apocalypse, it would be handy to have this survival extraordinaire protecting you! He's handy with a knife and very good with many different weapons. Also, in his first movie, Rambo even stitched himself up. This is a great example of some of the many things he can do to help ensure survival. Rambo always follows his heart for what he knows is right. He won't hesitate to provide for a group or to kill if he has to.
Captain America (Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Captain America: Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War)
Now for a superhero! Someone who is super strong and almost nothing can take him down! Captain America, time and time again, has proven his loyalty and leadership qualities to a team. Captain America is one of the first superheroes and he has definitely been through a lot! He as been between two different extremes before; going from a World War period to a modern time. This type of adaptation would be really important characteristic to have. I would definitely feel safe having The Captain on my side!
Captain America is fast, strong, and carries a shield! What else could you want other than a super-soldier during the apocalypse?
So, if the apocalypse ever comes, I know who I'm going to try and find! I'm sure Norman Rheedus, Sylvester Stallone, and Chris Evans won't mind playing along!
Thanks for reading!
