Wow, that was an incredible ride.
I've read alot of fanfiction crossing over with the Marvel universe and the focus was mostly on the crossover charcters than on the Mrvel characters. This is the first "pure" marvel fic I have read so I don't know if this story is full of clichès or if it's full of OOC characters.
What I know is that it is gripping, the characters are true to themselves as established in the story and that you made me a fan of your Shocker ;-). Love how after fantasizing about Ms. Marvel for all the story he manages to go out ona a 'date' with her.
Now I'm going to read the sequel to this story.

Excellent story all around, aside from a few spell check errors, this is what a zombie story in Marvel should have been to begin with. You took the idea from the House, and truly made it shine the way it should have.

Oh, my God. This story is so amazing, wonderfully awesome, cool, kick-ass, brilliant, and EPIC. I wish FFN let reviews use bold and italics just to underscore how much I love this story. Wonderful writing, spot-on characterization (if not quite true to the characters it's because you portray how they would act more realistically than Marvel) and just great. Nice combination of adventure, horror, and sci-fi (even though there's a lot of magic, the main character always uses scientific thought, especially when dealing with the magic, so I consider that science fiction), and good balance of introspection, clear narrative perspective (and smooth shifts from Herman reflecting as he writes to Herman in the moment), and wonderful showing-not-telling. Marvel should have you on staff, as this story feels more authentic to all the characters involved than some of their more recent stuff (*cough* One More Day *cough*).

This has been epic and this should get you load by most any marvel fan of your compatible sex.

I like this story quite a bit.
I'm only on chapter 22, but I do feel like, given how you're portraying Shocker's personality and skills, that he ought to be making it a priority to upgrade his suit, for the purpose of making it zombie proof, possibly making it into powered armor. It wouldn't be nearly in the same class of armor as Iron Man or Dr. Doom, but it would probably be able to handle small arms fire, zombie claws and bites, and have enough strength enhancement so that he wouldn't be slowed down by the weight of the armor. No flight, no weaponry beyond his existing gauntlets.

Arrow to the thigh... So close! If he had thought of getting an arrow in the knee, you would own that joke.

...Man I was pissed when he decided to pick up the initial reascue instead of finishing the 7-11 one. I was supposed to go to sleep after this chapter but I had to keep reading to find out. Damn you both. But I suppose a man with low-self esteem would like control over something in a world gone mad.
Although I can't really tell sometimes if he is narrating as he is doing something or if he's reflected on everything after the crisis has ended.

Yeah, Shocker, you are a little slow at times, not going straight for the headshot... Basics man! Even I know that and I'm not much of a zombie fan.

Rousseau Was Right. At least about the Shocker...
| Minion of Set chapter 6 . 1/4/2012
"I built my gloves out of bits of wire bedding, whatever I could get from the machine shop, and a couple of metal cafeteria plates, all while avoiding daily beatings and shower rape."
This line still gets me; it's terrible but it makes me laugh.
Snakes on a Plane reference. I didn't catch before if this was the white Fury or the Sam Jackson Fury, but that settles that.
| Minion of Set chapter 5 . 1/4/2012
Looks like Fury wants the world to know what's going on. He must be able to see some of what's coming. There's an eye-patch joke in there someone but I'm too lazy to look for it.

"Now, anyone calls him "retarded" and I'll level-four them right in the balls."
Nutshots. Always funny when implied. Less pleasant when it happens, or so I've heard...

Rhino for Big Damn Heroes!
Sliding Scale of Morality... Hm, is that the first TV Tropes reference, of which I know there will be more? It's reminiscent of tropes but isn't actually a trope. Yes, I checked, I have that kind of spare time.
I suppose TV tropes ruins the vocabulary of even fictional people. I must admit I have been tempted to have my characters give shot outs as well.

I love how full of snark Herman is.
It's nice to see him wanting to be more and not immediately thinking heroic thoughts or suddenly wanting to switch sides unrealistically.
