I think Rouge would be next to useless in a zombie apocalypse

@In_the_zone: Unless she absorbed someone else's powers beforehand, she is a solid 3. If she did, then she is a 4.5 at best.

depends on the powers that Rogue absorbed 3 - 4 without powers...1 - 10 depending on what powers she had and how long she had them

with Psylocke I'd giver her a solid 5...her telepathic abilities would only be good for coordination and despite what media may say ninja abilities probably would only be useful if you were fighting a small group...if she were to encounter a larger group or horde she'd be screwed

@danhimself: Cable is a perfect 10. He can take care of others. He can take care of himself. There is no way Cable is going down. His telepathy would be useless, though. And Rogue's absorbed powers don't last forever, so she'd be a 4-5 with powers and a 3-4 without.

Iceman is a solid 6. He's not higher because I don't think he has the mentality to survive a zombie apocalypse.

Love Zombie Apocalypse by the way.
I give Cyclops a 10, he can cause major damage to the Zombies.  How about Jean Grey, no Phoenix force, but her telekinesis will  be very handy.

9 for Jean Grey (10 if her telepathy works on zombies). She can fly away and make a telekinetic shield. Plus you won't have to risk your life for supplies as she can bring them to you via telekinesis. Next:

@Osian2: Magma gets a 3, meaning she'll last a week, tops. She might get too depressed, too. I don't believe telepathy works on zombies.

@In_the_zone said:

@Nightcrawler23: Is that Mystique?

If so could she shapeshift into a zombie and trick them? If so 8 or 9, if she can find a safe place. If that doesnt work then I will give her a 3, she is no stranger to danger

That was actually Transonic, but it doesn't matter.

7.5.

His powers are ideal, but he can't keep a force field up forever. He'll have trouble finding allies, which means food will be harder to obtain.

10. Healing factor would make him invulnerable to infection. Personality makes him invulnerable to depression. And the last time Deadpool was attacked by zombies, they didn't like how he tasted and stopped eating him.

With Wolverine it depends on if his healing factor can heal the infection or not...healing factors meant nothing in the Marvel Zombie Universe....if he's immune to the infection then a 10...if not a 1...his need for getting in close and his reliance on his healing factor would be his undoing

Beast get's a 3-4. He'll be too emotional, and might not even want to live. His powers aren't ideal either. If this was Dark Beast, I'd say 6, because he could develop a cure.

This would be Ororo after losing everyone she ever loved. She'd be enraged or broken. Both of which constitute a mental breakdown a la Old Man Logan.

Same goes for Wolverine, if he gave up completely allowing the infection to eventually overcome his healing factor, which could take months of constantly being bitten. Btw 10 is only for people who are GUARANTEED not to die. People like cable, shadowcat and colossus. Storm could go down, but it is not extremely likely. She gets an 8.5 with no morals.

@Nightcrawler23: Actually, just to get technical, Deadpool's healing factor doesn't protect against zombie bites as seen with Headpool and if i'm thinking of the same zombies who didn't like how he tasted then i'm sorry but they weren't real zombies. I would still give deadpool a good rating though.
