    If you were to set a plague upon humanity or to live an adventure in a world struggling to survive,which of these famous sci-fi creatures would you choose to set loose on the planet or fight against with a group of dedicated and loyal experts in an adventure throughout the ravaged planet?

    The best one would probably be the T-Virus but Aliens are by far the coolest.

    There were actually some comic books like Aliens Earth War and Aliens Nightmare Asylum and some other ones that are about the Aliens actually wrecking havoc on Earth,with people trying to survive,cults embracing the Aliens as their saviors(and dragging people to be
    face-hugged and produce more Aliens)and some remnats of the army going on raids to attack the Aliens in the ruined cities.It was a really apocalyptic scenery.

    The same could happen if Jurassic Park dinosaurs started spreading around the world...although perhaps less deadlier...but still it could be chaos!

    And of course a zombie outbreak caused by using the T-Virus or the Rage virus from the 28 Days Later would mean trouble too....


    Do you have any other suggestions?I'm sure I missed more classic sci-fi biological weapons...what about the alien parasites from the Snatcher movie?Or how's it called...lol :p

    Aliens.

    And interesting fact = "Critics have also analyzed Alien's sexual overtones. Adrian Mackinder compares the facehugger's attack on Kane to a male rape and the chestburster scene to a form of violent birth, noting that the Alien's phallic head and method of killing the crew members add to the sexual imagery.[59] McIntee claims that "Alien is a rape movie as much as Straw Dogs (1974) or I Spit on Your Grave (1978), or The Accused (1988). On one level it's about an intriguing alien threat. On one level it's about parasitism and disease. And on the level that was most important to the writers and director, it's about sex, and reproduction by non-consensual means. And it's about this happening to a man."[86] He notes how the film plays on men's fear and misunderstanding of pregnancy and childbirth, while also giving women a glimpse into these fears.[87] Film analyst Lina Badley has written that the Alien's design, with strong Freudian sexual undertones, multiple phallic symbols, and overall feminine figure, provides an androgynous image conforming to archetypal mappings and imageries in horror films that often redraw gender lines."

    I've got a problem with the question... To me, biological weapon says diseases and viruses, not creatures. So I chose other, for the Captain Trips virus from The Stand by Stephen King.


    Actually, zombies wouldn't be quite so easy to take care of. Try reading The Zombie Survival Guide or World War Z by Max Brooks, they both give logical explanations of how a zombie outbreak would destroy us, and how modern weaponry wouldn't do much.

    Basics are this, though: humans out of a fight if shot once or twice, but zombies would keep on coming. One well placed shot can kill a human outright, but zombies don't need anything but the brain (and that not even needing full function) to keep going. Explosions kill so many people because of the concussive force that ruptures organs and blood vessels, but zombies wouldn't need them and only the ones blow to pieces would die (meaning all those fancy missiles and grenades wouldn't be very effective). And before we figured this out, and had everyone in the army trained to aim for the head rather than the torso, there would be too many zombies to deal with and/or the army would be destroyed.

    Be afraid of the zombies. Be very afraid.

    The advantage of humans comes in strategy,tactics and logical thinking.What a human may lack in raw,primitive strength he makes it up with greater intellect and firepower.

    So I believe that in the end,the biggest threat when it comes to a zombie outbreak would be the infection and how to safely quarantine the infected people.

    I was torn, between the T-Virus and Aliens. But in the end if a zombie undead infected human thing jumped out, It is still humanish. If an alien jumped out, a turd would roll down my leg. So it all comes down to poop. Aliens wins.

    It's pretty close between Crichton's Dinos and the T-Virus, but I'm going to have to with the T-Virus. I mean, it's just a much more effective weapon.

    Plus, the dinosaurs were killed by the Costa Rican coast guard...really?
