I’ve said it countless times, but The Evil Dead stands as one of my favorite horror films of all time. The character of Ash is the epitome of what a ‘hero’ in horror should be. He’s funny, he’s extreme, and..let’s be honest, he’s been through a lot. He’s faced numerous Deadites in his adventures through The Evil Dead all the way to Army Of Darkness, and that’s not including his newest adventure that’s coming up! Another thing I’ve said far too many times to count is that I enjoy comic-books, specifically Marvel comics; such as Wolverine and Spider-Man. But what if we could combine the two together into an epic battle?
Whether you believe it or not, Marvel Zombies VS The Army Of Darkness is an actual five-issue comic book that was published in 2007 by Marvel Comics in association with Dynamite Entertainment, a crossover series where Ash Williams, who – as we just said is the hero of the popular Evil Dead films, finds himself in the Marvel Zombies setting: which is an alternate world of flesh-eating ‘zombified’ Marvel comics heroes.. These comics are as gory as they get, at least by Marvel standards, but Ash has kept his Bruce Campbell face, which I’m more than okay with!
thanks to a group of people known as “Slash/Up”, who run a YouTube series that actually combines pop culture icons with each other, we actually get to see characters like Ash fighting zombified super heroes, like Wolverine and Spider-Man, which let’s face it – we’ve all wanted to see at some point. Although it was initially removed, it’s been recently re-added; and in high-definition too! Although the video ends on a cliff hanger, It’s been recently mentioned that Slash/Up is working on “Ash VS The DC Dead“, which isn’t based on a comic – but that doesn’t stop me from imagining a zombified Batman.. If you’re still curious about the Marvel Zombies and Ash fight that I’m talking about, the awesome short [clocking in at just over 8 minutes] is found over on YouTube – or better yet, I’ve included it down below.
If you lasted through the above video, what were your thoughts on it? I actually really enjoy this short, and I forgot all about it until YouTube brought it up as a recommendation on my feed. Was Ash the hero he is meant to be? Or did you find him to be too try-hard? [which is kind of the point of Ash when you think about it..] Let me know in a comment or two down below or over on the Facebook Page.
