Why do you like post-apocalyptic setting so much?

I'm not sure why I have always been drawn to it, but it seems like most of my favorite comics, books and movies all had some kind of end of world type apocalypse take place.
One might argue that a post-apocalyptic setting is one where the individual hero can matter. After all, there are only a handful of survivors, so the active individual holds a greater importance relative to the surviving population. The same can be said of a fantasy setting where an individual can attain a significant power level relative to the common lot. This is in contrast to a modern setting where even a highly skilled adventurer can hardly hope to make a meaningful difference to the world as a whole.
