Maggie (Series 3)

Resurrection is a power that grants the user the ability to bring someone back from the dead. Unfortunately, this power has a side effect and those brought back eventually develop a craving for flesh, changing them into a zombie. This power works on both humans and other animals. It was originally found in an unknown man, who was kidnapped for Seth. Seth then gave this power to Curtis, in exchange for his Gender Swap power, for the purpose of resurrecting Seth's deceased girlfriend, Shannon.


  • Curtis is the only character to have displayed this ability, though it once belonged to someone else.


The original owner of the power was only briefly seen, kidnapped and held in the boot of a car by an investigator hired by power dealer Seth. In return for removing Curtis' unwanted Gender Swap power (and accordingly, his pregnancy). Seth forced Curtis to use this power to resurrect Seth's deceased girlfriend Shannon. Curtis also used this power on a cat who had been hit by a car. He later wanted to revive Alisha, but the others said he shouldn't, as it was a bad idea and she would not want to become a zombie.


See Zombie

The power removes all signs of decay from those raised. The cravings begin within a few hours of resurrection. Humans can restrain themselves for a while, but other animals likely can't. The longer someone goes without feeding the less control they have over their urges. If the human or non-human animal they feed upon survives then they become affected as well. Like the traditional zombie the only way to stop them is to destroy their brains. This is demonstrated by Curtis when he gets shot in the torso by Lola and appears unaffected by the wound.

  • Given the way in which Resurrection makes Zombies, and the nature of said Zombies, it is likely that the originator of the power was someone who frequented zombie fiction and films and/or fantasized about a "zombie apocalypse", which was then manifested by The Storm.
