Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 Zombies Mode Screens Shamble Forth

Call of Duty: Black Ops was an interesting monster in many ways. Its bizarre campaign was a breath of fresh air at first, at least when it comes to writing, but for the most part it was your run-of-the-mill Call of Duty from the main Modern Warfare releases.

But the reason Black Ops stood out to us the most was the fact that it pit John F. Kennedy, Robert McNamara, Richard Nixon, and Fidel Castro against a zombie onslaught in the Pentagon in "Five," the Black Ops follow-up to previous Nazi Zombie maps. It was a pretty strange design decision, to be quite honest, but we're not gonna lie: we've got an even weirder idea for the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and the zombie maps it will inevitably have: oh, yes -- an all-star '80s celebrity cast. Tubular!

We've gathered five of our favorite pop-culture stars straight out of one of the best decades ever, and it's zombie-huntin' time. Like, we're totally gonna gag some undead dorks with a spoon.

Judd Nelson

Who better than a member of the Brat Pack to make a clean sweep through the zombie horde? Those suave looks, that steely gaze -- that ability to relatively disappear into obscurity after the prime of his career? Rather than mindlessly reaching for the first available brains in sight, zombies upon running into Judd and his boyish charms and "get-back" stare will run in the other direction. His protective aura will form a shield around the rest of the zombie hunting squad, with additional armor from advancing hordes via Judd's "tough-guy" state -- the very same one that allowed him to appear in pitiful TV movies like Cybermutt and Cabin By The Lake. He's made of tougher stuff than us. But who ever disputed that? He's John Bender, for crying out loud!

Michael J. Fox

Quite arguably one of the most recognizable faces from such gems as Back to the Future and a cavalcade of other '80s classics, Michael is basically the 1980s personified. And for the sake of having the most powerful combined force, we're pulling '80s Michael, not poor Mr. Fox of 2012 who'd be eaten alive and left behind, unfortunately. Perhaps if the devs are feeling frisky, a DeLorean could be incorporated into the enormous mall we're seeing this zombie apocalypse take place in -- Twin Pines Mall, perhaps? And for an added touch, it'd definitely be crawling with valley girl zombies left and right. We've heard hoverboards are state of the art zombie-slaying equipment, too. Much better than a teddy bear or dancing monkey bomb, right?

Debbie Harry

If the Blondie front woman can survive Videodrome, she can exterminate an entire gaggle of zombies. And aside from Sarah Michelle Gellar, the entire franchise is in dire need of some estrogen to mix things up. Debbie's got just the right mix of attitude and the killer looks to stop enemies in their tracks, and with a heart of glass like hers, maiming and torching the walking dead shouldn't be a problem. Secret weapon? Deadly, seductive songs that could end up as perks. We know we're just dreaming fruitlessly here, but think about it -- how amazing would hitting the jukebox, jamming out to "Rapture," and nuking an entire room of those disgusting freaks be? Pretty rad.

Corey Feldman

He's tackled vampires and so many typical '80s flicks that he's practically been through any kind of situation. Zombies? No problem. Even Jason Voorhees is no match for Corey. Did we forget he's also a Ninja Turtle? Well, the third movie wasn't the best, as we're all aware, but that's a lot of hats to wear for one person. He's probably going a little crazy inside, which makes him a perfect fit for a soldier fighting the good fight in the zombie apocalypse. Let's just hope his partner-in-crime, now resting for all eternity, isn't somehow disturbed in his slumber and coming to take Feldman back with him. Then things might get a little hectic.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

He may have been too busy going about his duties as the governor of California last year to keep up his buff physique, but we know he's still the right man for the job. If he can take on a Predator (even if that movie is grossly incorrect regarding body temperature, mud, and thermal imaging) a few filthy brain-eaters are no problem. And what better game to give Arnold a home than Call of Duty? He's the quintessential soldier type, hardened through action hero flicks over the years. Plus, his accent's totally bitchin', man.

Which '80s celebrity would you kill to bust zombies with in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2? Or were you more of a grunge rocker from the good old '90s? Let us know in the comments below, while we're busy BeDazzling our Xboxes. You know you're jealous.
