What if Wednesday returns

Welcome back to What if Wednesday: back in full swing for 2023. We will no longer be doing a what-ifs every week. This way we can actually take our time and bring you some top tier What ifs with some more time and information behind them.

This month's What-if is "Who would crack first in the Midnight Apocalypse." During the Patreon livestream we took a look at all of our characters in an attempt to figure out who could handle a post apocalyptic scenario.

Don't worry, there are no spoilers for any of our stories in this blog post, just more insight on our characters.

The Butterfly and Blue Morpho: These two already have to live life on the edge. Due to the life they've had to lead, the human element wouldn't be as tough for them to deal with. We determined during the course of the livestream that the Blue Morpho wouldn't crack. However, we noted that The Butterfly would if her daughter died. She is her whole reason for moving forward in the first place. If she lost her she will go to an anger fueled rampage and inevitably get herself killed in any apocalyptic scenario.

Sol: We determined that, based on his ability and where he will most likely be protecting his father and best friend within the confines of P.H.A.R.A.O.H industries facility. This place is a fortress and Sol it's ultimate line of defense. There's nothing that could cause him to snap in most apocalyptic scenario. We did mention that his friend, Taharqua could possibly lose it and get them all killed.

The Grey: With her smarts, Shameka would be able to make wherever she is a safe haven. Here she could still live a somewhat normal life. If she joined a group she would be the optimist spends a lot of time looking something else to build in hopes of reclaiming some sort of normalcy. As long as she was able to do that we determined that she would be fine mentally. However, her eagerness to be a hero and help people could most likely get her killed, since she is still inexperienced.

Admani: Fatima is already dealing with a lot. Sadly, given her already difficult mental struggle, she would crack within the first weeks to months of any apocalyptic scenario. She is terrified of her fire abilities and not in control of them. They tend to overwhelm her in times of stress or fear. Combine this with the horror that would ensue during the course of any apocalyptic event, and she would likely accidently kill anyone in her vicinity in a moment of panic, only serving to push her further off the deep end.

Eabani: A college student who would mostly like snap. In his first issue of The Last Day we see him deal with some scary stressors, causing him to panic. I won't speak on the ability he eventually gains, but he still is an average college student and, let's be real, a majority of us wouldn't make it in a post apocalyptic scenario.
