It’s a discussion that everyone must have at some point in their lives, one that has haunted mankind for years. Who would you have on your zombie apocalypse survival squad?
We’re no strangers to this question here at Six to Start – after all, we spend a pretty big chunk of our time considering the undead and making them come to life in Zombies, Run!. And now we set out to answer that most pressing of questions as we ask the team, which Zombies, Run! characters would you choose to support you in the zombie apocalypse?
In a zombie apocalypse, I think after the initial fear, I would want to start gathering power. There’ll be a vacuum perfect for new, strong leadership, and I’m nothing if not a megalomaniac! So with that in mind, Brent Valmont is the king of manipulation and negotiation. I would have to keep a close eye on him, of course, but he’d a very valuable diplomat and always seems to know what’s going on behind closed doors!
I’d take on Veronica, and her genius would be directed at coming up with the cure — after all, whoever control the cure, controls the country. I would still be generous in handing out, of course — I’m a benevolent dictator!
Bella Ramsay would become my Head of Agriculture. With her irrigation know-how, we’d be able to bring sustainable farming back, and less runners would have to risk their lives for supplies!
Finally, I’d have Phil Cheeseman and Zoe Crick as my propaganda machines! With their easy, chatty style, I think they’d win people over. Plus, if they’ve already built a following for their radio station, I’m sure it won’t be difficult to get lots of people listening to Radio Lulu.
Plus, Zoe is a big animal lover like me, and she could double as my menagerie keeper!
