Ok so there's a massive nuclear attack or zombie infection crisis or alien invasion and the end of the world is approaching amist widespread chaos, which tv/film characters would you choose in your apocalypse team?

Mine would be Jack Bauer from 24 as he's a good all rounder, Beatrix Kiddo from Kill Bill as she can fight off large numbers with just a samurai sword and Michael Scofield from prison break to do the critical thinking.

Sydney Bristow's dad from Alias. He is hard as nails and has a massive arsenal in a lock up. And probably another in another lock up somewhere near me. That guy is always ready.

Oo, definitely Jack Bauer, Ray Mears for survival (ok, not technically a character but on tv!), Professor Xavier-mind control always handy, Jaqen H'ghar for super stealth, Dr Crusher for medical emergencies.

Good ideas, definitely second Ray Mears.

Noah Wyle. (dr carter from er and also in falling skies)

He can cover any medical emergency and also shoot aliens in the head while still retaining his humanity!

Dean Winchester because he has been to hell and back and survived (not to mention that I would never tire of looking at him), Jack Bauer is a given, Jason Bourne would be good too as he is handy in a one to one fight and Jack Reacher because the man has skills. I'm sure I have many more and will return.......

Oh oh oh how could I have forgotten - either Scott or Stonebridge from Strikeback (preferably both).

Spike from Buffy, but not necessarily for his problem-solving abilities. And Ros from Spooks; nobody would mess with her.

Nikita because the girl can handle herself and she is so skinny she wouldn't take much to feed.

Dare I suggest the 'A Team', they can make an entire fleet of vehicles with weapons out of the contents of my Dad's garage?

I agree with Spike from Buffy but would worry he would get so hungry he would end up eating us all.

Goran Visnjic Dr Kovac from ER, Rob Pattinson,Matthew Mcnulty,etc etc.just cause I fancy them all and could fit in some last minute "fun"

Doc from back to the future because if we can get him some plutonium and a lot of scrap metal in a Delorean we could skip the apocalypse altogether!

Ha ha, Doc Brown! He is a genius after all.
Was thinking Eric Northman...you know, for no strings fun. Plus if we get over run (zombies) he can turn me.
Yes, Jason Bourne.
Gok Wan for turning post apocalyptic trash into high fashion!

Wait wait WTAF?! No-one told me we had to have team ready, I've sort-of got an OFRS (well cupboard), but a team?

When did this happen?

Slatternismymiddlename Wed 07-Nov-12 14:42:33

I had trouble sleeping last night and pondering this dilemma did pass quite a bit of time. I came to the conclusion that whilst Spike, Eric Northman and Damon Salvatore would undoubtedly be very very nice to look at and would be good at the whole protection thing, they would probably end up eating the rest of the team (obviously they wouldn't eat me as they would be soooooo in love with me, but the rest of the team would be fair game).

My other nomination was James Bond.

I still haven't thought of anyone for the mass zombie killing in the style of Bettyspaghetti's Beatrix Kidd. Will have to ponder some more.

I want the Minions, they're good at building stuff and so cute you'd forget there'd been a disaster.

Lulabellarama Wed 07-Nov-12 15:01:19

Faith from Buffy, Chloe from 24 and Omar from The Wire.

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Wed 07-Nov-12 15:20:49

Heartily concur with many of the above. So that's the two Jacks, (Reacher & Bauer), Jason Bourne, Dr Kovac, Rick Grimes with Eric Northman as back-up and I suppose Dr Who could whisk us all to safety once my energy ran out assuming the Tardis still functioned...

bettyspaghetti33 Wed 07-Nov-12 20:50:09

I vote umpa lumpas as minions, perfect for re-building the new world afterwards.

bettyspaghetti33 Wed 07-Nov-12 20:53:25

Ahhh Chloe from 24 of course how did I miss her... she'd be perfect for the keyboard clickety clack and sarcastic humour.

HarlettOScara Wed 07-Nov-12 20:59:27

Darryl Dixon from the Walking Dead. He's badass and I'd ride him like a Blackpool donkey

Sparklingbrook Wed 07-Nov-12 21:02:55

Sheldon Cooper and Edmund Blackadder. And Baldrick if he had a cunning plan. Oh and Rik and Vyvyan from The Young Ones. grin
