Synopsis for "Night of the Livid Dead". Contains spoilers.
The reader is introduced to the #AshWilliams of the #Marvel #Zombie universe, named #AshleyGWilliams. In this universe, this Ash has never experienced what Ashley J. Williams experienced in his original world, despises the Marvel heroes (he's even seen agreeing with #JJonahJameson's views on #SpiderMan), and is a lowly clerk at S-Mart. You see him defeat a zombified #Hulkling, watching #MODOK being devoured by #SheHulk and #Hawkeye, and encountering a zombie #MultipleMan, before being distracted by the sight of #AshleyJWilliams. This moment allowed #HowardTheDuck to attack him and eat his brains.
After Howard the Duck is finished with Ashley G. Williams, he turns to #Dazzler, before being sawed in half by Ashley J. Williams. However, this doesn't prove to kill Howard, as the upper half of his body leaps at Ash and attempts to eat him. However, the #ScarletWitch turns Howard's body into glass, which is then destroyed by Ash. The Scarlet Witch then explains to Ash and Dazzler what happened to the #Avengers. However, her story is cut short when a zombie #Thor appears in the sky above.
Ash, Scarlet Witch, and Dazzler then go to #DrStrange's home, where they encounter a zombie #DoctorDruid eating #Wong before being eliminated by Ash. After interrogating some of the books in Dr. Strange's library (including burning one book that told Ash to "get bent."), they discover that #DrDoom has the #Necronomicon in #Latveria. However, they see that zombie super children are attacking civilians before they are attacked by #Nextwave. This allows Ash, Scarlet Witch, and Dazzler to escape in Dazzler's nearby #Quinjet. Nextwave, however, are defeated.
Ash, Scarlet Witch, and Dazzler are next seen in the Quinjet flying to Latveria, and telling Ash about Dr. Doom (along with Ash hitting on Dazzler and Scarlet Witch and asking about a "Quinjet mile high club"). However, when they reach Doom's castle, they see it's under attack by a zombie #Goliath. Ash simply states that they are "screwed."
