The Walking Dead Comic Power Rankings: Issue #169

Before the group can split up we need to re-adjust which characters hold the most power in The Walking Dead. Here are our new rankings following Issue #169:


1. Rick

rick

“What’s one more fucking grave?” Jesus, Rick. Way to put Dwight in his place. Rick did the most this issue: he used Eugene’s secret radio to make a connection, recruited a team for the trip, metaphorically buried Dwight, and allowed Carl to be free at the Hilltop. HOWEVER, for the first time in what seems like a while Rick got denied by some his most loyal supporters to go on his mission. He’s clearly still the top power holder, but is his influence slipping?


2. Maggie

maggie

Now that the dust has settled Maggie’s ready to rebuild The Hilltop, and if that works we’re ready for her to be Rick Grimes 2.0.


3. Carl

carl

Carl grows up more and more each issue. In this one he properly mourned his mom and informed Rick of his intentions to live at The Hilltop. We should all be excited for Carl’s new independence.


4. Michonne

michonne

Michonne may be a bit too confident about her mission but as the leader for the Ohio mission she holds a tremendous amount of power.


5. Eugene (+4)

eugene

Sure, Eugene should have divulged his contact with Stephanie to Rick ages ago. BUT, that’s now in the past and Rick’s sending a task force to meet with this new group. Considering Eugene is the only one Stephanie trusts it seems that he ultimately holds all the cards (and power) in this exchange.


6. Dwight (-1)

dwight

Even though Dwight got obliterated by Rick this issue it seems like the two can at least coexist together. And with the community splitting up to Ohio and The Hilltop they’ll need to get along more than ever. The question is – can they ever bury the hatchet?


7. Jesus (+1)

jesus

Jesus surprisingly bowed out of a mission that has his name written all over it. It was for love, and if Rick seems OK with it, we will too.


8. John (-2)

john

Has Rick finally rid himself of John and The Saviors? No one can be sure, so until their absence is truly felt we’ll leave them in the rankings.


9. Magna (NEW)

magna

We are adding Magna because she’s been enlisted to help Michonne make contact with Eugene’s radio pal, and that could carry a lot of responsibility for her.


10. Negan (-3)

negn

Negan sank to the bottom of our rankings because Rick and Dwight let him leave Alexandria. Although he seems to be out of the picture without any power or respect, Maggie’s still going to have Dante keep tabs on him. Who knows what he could be up to.


Off the list: Lydia We love Lydia but other than supporting Carl she doesn’t hold an incredible amount of power right now.

On the Bubble: Yumiko, Aaron, Siddiq

    I don’t agree with the amount of the drop Negan got. I mean he got his beans weenies, made fun of Dwight (who Rick should have killed with his lame ass hook (Christ, it worked for Merle on TV. Rick should at least have some kind of weapon prosthetic like a hatchet, knife, or mace of some kind he can put on during times of crisis.) instead of threatening the guy who flat out said he had soldiers willing to back him. And this is from someone who likes Dwight.

      Agree with the Dwight issue, he should have some kind of punishment rather than a scold from Rick. But Rick knows best not to push someone who clearly has some power in Alexandria. Hope they do bury the hatchet on this one. I was a bit mad to see Dwight’s change of attitude, its understandable sure, “the boss kills your ex-wife and nobody says nothing”.
      I don’t think punching Dwight in the jaw would have improved things. hehehe
      Other than that the issue had a lot of drama… and Yes Rick should already have a hatchet prosthetic just in case.
