The Walking Dead Comic Power Rankings: Issue 179

The road to Alexandria begins! We’ve updated our Walking Dead Power Rankings following Issue 179, where our characters either spoke up, stayed behind, or trudged ahead.


1. Pamela

 

pamela

Great, another leader calling a place they don’t respect a shit hole. Pamela may not be as pleasant as she thinks she is, but she still runs a massive community that could just as massively help or hurt Alexandria. That sort of power keeps her solidly at the top.


2. Rick

 

rick

Rick wasn’t featured in this issue but he still holds a lot of the cards in the impending meet-up with Pamela. Expect to see much more of him in the next issue.


3. Maggie

 

maggie

Similar to Rick, Maggie also holds a lot of power as a community leader, and should remain in the top 3 of the rankings.


4. Eugene (+5)

 

eugene

Michonne surprisingly passed the torch/katana to Eugene to carry in her stead. Over time Eugene has gained more power and respect among the Walking Dead’s heavy hitters, so his power status now reflects that.


5. Michonne (-1)

 

michonne

Since Michonne is staying behind and relinquishing her katana she’s relinquishing a spot on the list. But don’t worry, just because she’s not joining Eugene and the rest on the ride back doesn’t mean her story is over. We have MUCH more Michonne story to tell in the coming issues…


6. Officer Mercer (+1)

 

mercer

Despite Sebastian’s disrespect, Mercer now leads the army to Alexandria as Pamela’s top brute. That deserves a slight rise up the rankings.


7. Sebastian (-1)

 

sebastian

Since Sebastian is staying behind we’re dropping him down a spot. Also, f this guy.


8. Lance (-3)

 

lance

Lance is only falling because his role just isn’t as important as the people above him. But don’t count him out completely, he did convince Michonne to stay at the Commonwealth.


9. Magna (+3)

 

magna

Magna stepped up this issue by calling BS on the dates class system the Commonwealth has implemented. Easy for Michonne to be on board with it, but we need more people like Magna to look at Michonne and say, “Oh really, Michonne? You’re a lawyer who will be in the upper 1% and are totally fine with a class system? Cool.”


10. Princess (-2)

 

princess

Princess is only getting bumped because the other characters are moving up. Seeing her and Rick in the same panel together will be fun.


11. Yumiko (+2)

 

yumiko

Yumiko is getting bumped because of her role in the journey back East to Alexandria.


12. Siddiq (-2)

 

siddiq

Now that Siddiq has surrendered his information about Mercer, he doesn’t really have any more cards to play. Because of that, we’re dropping him down a couple spots.


13. Elodie (+1)

 

elodie

Elodie and Michonne’s relationship will continue to grow while the rest do business in Alexandria.


14. Carl (-3)

 

carl

Carl has been pretty MIA during this story arc, and his standings reflect that.


15. Jesus

 

jesus

Like Carl, Jesus also hasn’t really been seen since Beta’s murder, which seems like ages ago.


16. Aaron

 

aaron

Ditto for Aaron, but expect to see both he and Jesus reappear in the next few issues.


17. Dante

 

dante

Dante only holds power because of his relationship with Maggie.


18. Sophia

 

sophia

Similarly, Sophia also only holds power via her association with Maggie.


On the Bubble: Stephanie, Dwight, and Laura.


That wraps up this month’s character Power Rankings for Issue 179! What did YOU think of the new list? Let us know in the comments!

    Yes, this youngster has a dream and I hope it comes true! I have been a long time fan of all TWD universe and have said for a long time that it would be something that I would love to work on as an Artist, I am no actor but I would love to do set design or get my foot in the door with the comics somehow. So speaking of the comics, this latest issue was great and I love the way it is setting up for something we have not seen before, such a large well organized community with more power than we have seen to date. Can t wait to see where the power rankings go after issue 180.

    I get the feeling that Pamela thinks she’s just going to stroll in and take control. Leaders like Rick and Maggie aren’t people to be F-ed with. They aren’t about to fall in line behind her, and I doubt anyone is going to take lightly to the Commonwealth’s class system. Interested to see what she thinks about a farmer’s daughter and a sheriff’s deputy running these communities. They probably won’t be fit in her eyes.
