League of Extraordinary Bloggers Weekly Theme: Zombie Apocalypse!

This week's topic: Which TV or movie hero do you want beside you when the zombie apocalypse arrives.

This one is a no-brainer for me. It took me all of .005 seconds to make my choice. Granted, I may be stretching the rules a bit since this character originally started out as an action figure, but he soon showed up in the animated series based on the toys, then in a 2009 motion picture, then in a new reboot cartoon on the HUB network and has recently been seen dominating the previews for the big screen sequel.

I'm talkin' about a guy who is both comfortably at home with blades and bullets. A highly trained killing machine. A tireless warrior who has practically cornered the market on badassery.

I'm talkin' about... Snake Eyes!

Think about it;  it's a zombie apocalypse and the world is taken over by the shuffling undead. What better ass-kicker to have at your side than Snake Eyes? He's the kind of fighter that would be lopping off zombie noggins before you even new the rotten droolers were even there. He could take on 5 busloads of the shambling stinkers all at once while cooking a can of beans and franks over a make-shift campfire.

And here's the best part; the dude doesn't talk! The last thing I'd want at the end of civilization as we know it is some Chatty McGabberson yapping at me about the good ol' days or screaming like a little girl every time something with only one filled eye socket comes around the corner.

Also, his new costume for the upcoming movie looks way more badass...

So, there it is. When the world comes crashing down due to the roiling masses of undead crawling up from their earthly slumber, me and Snake Eyes will be waiting for them... eating beans and franks.
