GeekOut.ph asked people to assemble fictional teams for the upcoming zombie apocalypse, and I may be late (it’s already published) but I think additions are still welcome, so here’s mine:
My zombie apocalypse team
Dr. Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory
For his emergency supply kit for an apocalypse and (let’s admit) knowledge. Also, zombie fodder—I’m not going to think twice feeding him to the zombies once he gets annoying and we need a way to distract the undead—all his theoretical knowledge may be impractical after all.
animation (also manga and video games)
Future Trunks from Dragon Ball Z
Probably the only male I’m going to pick as Sheldon is asexual. For his apocalyptic experience from the Red Ribbon Androids of the future, and his numerous capsules (for supplies and tools) from his mother’s corporation and a working time machine that may actually be quite useful—also, Super Saiyan!
comics and film (interchangable)
Hit-Girl from Kick-Ass
For her assassin training since early childhood, including knowledge of a variety of modern bladed weapons and guns.
manga and film (interchangable)
Azumi from Azumi
For her assassin training since early childhood, including knowledge of a variety of ancient weapons and ninja tricks.
video games (also animation and movies)
Tifa Lockhart from Final Fantasy VII
For close-combat skills and the occassional limit breaks whenever the zombies get really close and Sheldon’s already dead, and the ability to use materia for defensive and offensive magic and summon abilities—Knights of Round will eventually come in handy.
books (also movies and video games)
Hermione Granger from Harry Potter
For all the spells, charms, hexes and curses we’ll probably ever need, extra storage space in her purse if the capsules aren’t enough, and—well—I didn’t want to choose a wizard, that would be Riddikulus.
What will probably be left of my zombie apocalypse team—yeah, I don’t mind

Barcelona FC, the most exciting football team in the world which boasts of the best player in the game today in Lionel Messi, has remembered the 100th anniversary of the Filipino striker that FIFA named “The Best Asian Player of All-Time” - Paulino Alcantara.
Many Filipinos, clearly fascinated by the popular Azkals who together with the United Football League have helped in the resurgence of interest in football, perhaps don’t even know that a Filipino-Spanish player was the star striker of Barcelona whose record number of goals scored stands to this day.
The Barcelona FC website recalled that on February 25, 1912 the 15 year old Alcantara first wore the coveted jersey in the Catalonian Championship against Català Sporting Club. Barça won 9-0 and Alcántara scored the first three goals to set a record that has never been broken for being the youngest player to ever score for FC Barcelona in an official match.
Born in Iloilo to an Ilongga mother and a father who was a Spanish military officer, Paulino moved to Spain where the legendary striker was discovered by Joan Gamper and was signed up by Barcelona, Gamper was responsible for forming the Barcelona club and became its president in 1918.
Alcantara ripped the net in a match against France and from then on was nicknamed “El Rompe Redes” or The Net Breaker.”
The first Filipino and Asian player to play top class football in Europe Alcantara scored 357 goals in a total of 357 matches to earn the distinction of being the club’s highest goalscorer. He went on to help the club win several championships including…READ MORE
