The Zombie Apocalypse Team

The Zombie Apocalypse finally happens.  You need to assemble a team that will help you survive the catastrophe.  Your team members would be comprised of the protagonists of:

1. Last movie/tv show you saw 
2. last book you've read 
3. last video game you played

With your team in place, how long do you think you will survive the zombie plague?

As for me, my team is as follows:

Last movie I saw:

The Avengers.  The culmination of five prior movies and four titular characters, assembling some of Marvel's greatest heroes, or at least those who are movie-worthy.  While we're on this subject, I cannot say enough how much I loved this movie.  It may not be faithful to any comic arc that I know of, but the snarky dialogue and scenes make up for it.  With Joss Whedon of Buffy fame at the helm, of this project, my expectations were high.  And he did not disappoint.

Last book I finished:

Augusten Burroughs from Magical Thinking.  The memoirs of an advertising executive who believes he can perform magical thinking.  He thought about wanting to quit advertising and become a New York Times Bestselling author, and he became one.  He wanted his date to like him even though he wasn't his type physically, and they became partners.  He was so angry at a former boss that he wished her to get hit by a bus and months later, the boss dies of an aneurysm.  Which is so much better than a bus!  Funny, endearing and relatable to an extent, I am not surprised that it became the bestseller that it was.

Last video game I played:

Druid from Diablo II.  I don't really play much video games.  But when a friend and I were talking one time about Diablo, and how it was once rumored to have caused demon possessions (yes, it even made the news) I told him I wanted to play it.  As luck would have it, he has a copy of the game and he installed the same on my old lappy.  Sadly, old lappy was ill-prepared for handling the specs needed for proper game play.  No demon possessions occurred while I was playing, but old lappy finally called it quits, and died on me.

So there you have it:  A group of super-powered, neigh indestructible individuals, an author whose every whim is made possible by the universe, and a druid who can summon wolves, bears, and meat-eating tendrils at command.  I guess I'm all set for the zombie apocalypse.  

How about you?  How will you fare in the coming apocalypse?
