The DC Universe Guide to Surviving the Undead Apocalypse

One universally acknowledged truth of life and death in DC comics is that the deceased rarely stay that way forever. Oftentimes, these reunions can be cause for celebration. But sometimes, well, the dead come back wrong. And in the worst-case scenarios, the dead all come back at once…and hungry.

It’s a warning worth taking to heart as two separate undead nightmares arrive this week in the forms of Task Force Z and DC vs. Vampires. But keep calm and keep your wits about you, and we might just get through this together. After all, it’s all happened before. While non-living threats may not quite be up there with Joker attacks and invaders from Apokolips when it comes to frequency, this is something our heroes have some experience with. So, taking past run-ins with the undead to heart, here are some helpful tips to keep in mind when facing a zombie apocalypse.


#2 - Pack Light

If the undead happen to be flying about in matching black uniforms with rings on their fingers and feeding on emotions instead of brains or blood, then you’ve got a Black Lantern outbreak on your hands. These tricky devils can be a Black Handful, but the crisis of Blackest Night taught us with some trial and error how to take a Black Lantern down.

What you need to defeat a Black Lantern Corps member is the light from two other colors of Lantern ring. One green, and dealer’s choice on the second. There’s already close to ten human Green Lanterns flying around, so the flagging one down shouldn’t be too tough. As for the second part…maybe try hoping REAL hard, or getting REAL angry?
