There’s a REALLY stupid Wolverine issue circa ‘Civil War’ during which he is completely boiled away, leaving only a skeleton that re-grew a body in seconds, thanks to a combination of bad writing and one upmanship.  As for Deadpool, his endlessly regenerating body has made for some really funny moments that are equally ridiculous from a biological perspective.  But the question of whether Wolverine or Deadpool has the strongest healing factor is a complex one, consisting of decades of comic and cartoon stories, leading to today’s x-factor query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds nay-sayers that Deadpool’s severed body parts were able to refuse and reanimate as a separate creature made of limbs, asking: Whose healing factor reigns supreme: Wolverine or Deadpool?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
