Day 22 (Saturday) - Black History Month - Michonne
Today we’re covering one of The Walking Dead’s most popular characters, Michonne. As her television and comic book counterparts differ, we will be focusing on her role in the books.
Before the apocalypse, Michonne studied law in College. This is where she picked up her childhood hobby of fencing again. After graduating and earning her degree, she became a very successful attorney. She married a man (unnamed), had two daughters, and eventually divorced him. Michonne would later go on to date a man named Mike.
Her first appearance (post-apocalypse) was in Issue #19, where Rick and his group first settle into “The Prison”.
Michonne is expertly skilled at wielding a katana sword and prefers to use her blade instead of firearms.
It is stated by Robert Kirkman (creator of TWD) that Michonne is the strongest character in the comic (Letter Hacks of Issue 49). She is one of a small percentage of characters who have killed the most named characters either zombified or living. She is also one of a very small percentage of characters that has not revealed her last name.
Michonne is the first female survivor with an action figure for both the TV series and comics.
