Greetings True Believers!

It's time for another zom-Marvel-mini! I'm pretty Marvel Zombied out but this issue and plot wasn't that bad.

It's more "28 Days Laterish" this time around. Plus I think Frank really works in a "Last Man" story.

4 pages, enjoy!

So the world has been taken over by tribal, cannibalistic predators. It was a virus. Frank Castle is one of the few unaffected humans left. This virus spread quickly to humans and super-humans. Spider-Man was patient zero. The affected aren't zombies in the traditional senses, more like Hills Have Eyes/Crossed maniacs.

Oh and this is all Frank's fault.

He attacks a Russian Mafia gathering where he thinks they're dealing in WMDs.

That is how the virus begins to spread.

It consumes the world and Frank is still in NY hunting down the Super-Maniacs. Spidey has taken over a section of NY with his "harem". (Tarantula, Black Widow, Spider-Woman) He puts out the body of an uninfected person.

I like it. I'll be picking up the series.

Cover for the next issue. Oh Frank, you do get in over your head.

I remember an What if where Frank did manage to kill Spidey in his first encounter, and spent the next few weeks being pursued and barely surviving encounters with New Yorks Vengeful hero community.

I think that's a more accurate portrayal.

Volume 2, #58.

And to be fair, he does survive long enough to get himself gunned down by the cops with the Jackal.

It's also important to realize that a good chunk of the MU A-list are also either normal human beings or are just one or two notches up from one. While a lot of the older heroes have been dramatically powered up since their first appearances, non-powered operatives in the MU are on a far more even keel than they are in, say, the DCU.
