Comic Book Excerpts:
afterlife

BELOW: Tony Stark (Iron Man) contemplates the dark "secrets" of his fellow Ultimates:

Then again it wasn't like Banner was the only one whose character could be considered . . . murky. They all had secrets... Who knew what sins Hawkeye would be atoning for when he finally met his maker? Years in SHIELD's black ops would have piled them up by the dozen.

BELOW: Tyreese warns his daughter and her boyfriend to keep their hands to themselves: A few days ago, zombies attacked Tyreese and his fellow survivors while they were trying to find a new place to live at Wilshire Estates. Tyreese couldn't find his daughter Julie, until he found her alone with her boyfriend Chris, beginning to engage in what appeared to be heaving making out or petting. He didn't have time to address what was going on then, as he had to get them to safety from the zombies. Now, relatively safe on the Greene farm, Tyreese gives them a warning about their behavior. Julie and Chris say little to Julie's father in response, but after Tyreese leaves they talk, making it clear that although they have not had sex yet, they plan to when "the time is right." The conversation between Chris and Julie also reveals the seeds of what will later be revealed to be a suicide pact between them so that they can be together "for the rest of eternity."

Tyreese warns his daughter and her boyfriend to keep their hands to themselves

Tyreese: Okay, guys. We need to talk.

Julie: Daaad!

Tyreese: Don't "Dad" me, young lady. This isn't going to go on right under my nose. I just don't have time to put up with this. I don't want to have to worry about you two fooling around all the time. I don't want to have to keep an eye on you on top of all the other sh-- I've got to do. You want to get pregnant? Do you not see how dangerous that would be? I don't know how Rick and Lori are dealing with it the way they are. This isn't a game. I know you two think you're in love but you're young... Think about what you're doing. *sigh* Just keep your hands to yourselves.

[Tyreese walks away.]

Chris: See? I told you we needed to go ahead and do it. I want to be together with you for the rest of eternity. I don't want your father to stand in the way of that.

Julie: I know... I just don't want to do it until the time is right. We have to wait.

Chris: Fine, Julie. We'll play it your way... But I don't want to wait forever.
