Main Article: Mike (The Fall of the Governor)

Mike and Christina survived the initial outbreak in their news station building. A few months into the apocalypse, the survivors began to turn on each other as resources ran out. Mike, along with Christina, escaped in Mike's helicopter. Unfortunately, the helicopter was sabotaged, and the pair soon crashed, with Mike being killed on impact. Mike's body is fed to the walkers on the pit arena by The Governor.
