G.O.R.E. Score: Marvel Zombies 3

Marvel Zombies 3 (2010)

Original Release Date: December 1, 2009 (collected)
Number of Issues: 4
Publisher: Marvel Entertainment

“Marvel Zombies 3” takes the “MZ” storyline in a completely different direction, and the jury is definitely hung on whether this is a good thing or not. In this mini-series, zombie Deadpool wanders his way from the zombie-infested universe featured in the first two series onto Earth-616, which is the center of the mainstream Marvel Universe, where most of the “original” versions of the Marvel superheroes that we know and love call home.

This, in my opinion, is where the credibility of this storyline starts to get sketchy. In all the previous parallel universes we’ve seen so far, the zombie virus infests and spreads quickly, usually across the entire planet in a matter of hours, since the virus “targets superhumans specifically;” in “MZ3,” zombies are on Earth-616 for many days, if not longer, but the virus somehow stays contained, and conveniently for Marvel’s continuity, not a single mainstream hero gets killed or zombified throughout the entire story.
