Who would you invite to the Apocalypse?  
(Subject line courtesy of my mom during our conversation about this topic)

Say there was an apocalypse, any type, doesn't matter what. Say you could have any fictional character you wanted by part of your group of survivors. Who would you chose?

Would you go for the people with useful skills? Or the hotties? Rational, logical, thinkers? Or shoot first, ask questions later people?

Any and all fandoms included in this, all I ask is that you explain WHY you'd want them with you. Discussion on why someone would or would not be good ("Well, I don't think they would be so great, what about how they tend to...") is encouraged, but no bashing ("OMFG! No! You're wrong that person would suck in an apocalypse!") allowed.

So, who would you invite? I'll post my mom and I's list soon, it got kinda long so transcriping it will take a long time, but I'd love to hear who you guys would want and why.

Oh! The thing that brought on this conversation? We were talking about the Discovery Channel show 'The Colony', which takes 10 people and puts them in a post-virus apocalyptic world and they need to complete tasks vital to survival. We discovered it on either Saturday or Sunday and watched the 2nd ep last night, and we love it... we wanna kill one of the guys, but... we still love the show.

Derek and Kyle Reese, Sayles and John Connor (Terminator:Sarah Connor Chronicles), since the Reeses and Sayles have already lived through an apocolypse and Connor's been preparing for one his whole life.

John Crichton (Farscape), he's proved himself adaptable in numerous strange worlds in outer space, he's a decent shot and probably do okay in an apocolypse. Plus he wouldn't exactly bring the hotness factor down. Same for Aeryn Sun, same show.

Alec Hardison (Leverage), because he'd find a way to make tech work, even after everything goes boom, plus he's funny and we'll need someone to lighten the mood, even as he's all frustrated with the rest of us.

Castiel (Supernatural). Afterall it can't *hurt* to have an angel looking over you. I think I'd leave the Winchesters behind. Too much baggage, and I'm not sure how much Kleenex there'll be in the aftermath for all of Dean's weepiness.

Richard Cypher and Kahlan Amnell (Legend of the Seeker), just in case we're back to primitive weapons for a while, I'll need some peeps who can wield a sword (and dagger).

Captain James T. Kirk (the Chris Pine one), since he seems to think on his feet pretty well. Though Crichton and he might clash. Eh, Crichton can always kick his ass, since Kirk is a terrible, terrible fighter.

John Casey (Chuck) and Michael Westen (Burn Notice) because they are badass personified, though Westen might struggle a bit without his yogurt.

ETA, while I'm here, I might as well through Captain Awesome (Chuck) in as well. We'll need a doc, and as far as fictional doctors go, he's way less annoying than the entire cast of Grey's, Private Practice or House (I'd take House, but he's already gimpy and wouldn't do well without his Vicodin).

Hmmm, I'm sure that there are more, but I'll start here. Can I have them all, please?

My mom and I didn't event hink of Castiel! We went with Bobby, Ellen, and Dean from Supernatural...

Pine's Kirk made my mom and I's list too! We both said absolutely NO to Shatner's Kirk, but agreed that Pine's Kirk would be good...

For doctors/medical people, we went with a variety from different shows... Mark Green and Peter Benton from ER, maybe John Carter too if it was Post-Africa Carter, Jim Clancy from Ghost Whisperer, Carlos Nieto and Monte 'Doc' Parker from Third Watch...

I totally forgot about Ellen (as has TPTB at SPN), but I'd totally take her. Maybe not Bobby. He's old, grumpy and would most assuredly find me to be an "idyit." I just lost my world to the apocolypse, I don't need to be insulted on top of all that.

I don't watch any of those other doctor shows, so I'll stick with Awesome for my doc. I'm tempted to take the new "Bones" from Star Trek, but he'd probably work my last nerve.

Maybe Jack Bauer (24)? He'd probably come in handy!
