Mike Palmer is a main character and survivor of the outbreak in The Walking Dead Webisodes: Torn Apart. Mike was an older survivor living in Andrew's neighborhood, married to Maggie, and they had two children together.


He owned a truck and possibly possessed weapons. He was in a rivalry with Andrew, Andrew holding a better paycheck. Palmer had never divorced. Before the apocalypse, he was celebrating his 50th birthday with his family and holding a party at his house until the walkers arrived.


Not knowing that the situation was out of control with attempting to contain the infection, his wife and children became infected during his birthday party. He was attacked by his wife and possibly injured on his foot before he was able to retrieve his weapons and kill her. However, he was unable to kill his own children and left them upstairs, pounding on the door while he went to confront Andrew in the basement. Andrew visited him to borrow his truck and weapons to assist with putting down his injured dog, and helped his family and ex-wife escape the town and drive toward Atlanta.
