One hails from the 30th Century, where he helped to revolutionize medicine in a time beyond needles and scalpels.  The other hails from upstate New York, where he helped to cure a virus that was killing his people and accidentally turned himself blue and furry, which turns out to be a plus, somehow?  Either of the Doctors McCoy would be great in terms of trailblazing medicine that you never considered possible, but their bedside manners are very different.  Gruff Leonard will bring to bear the best whistling salt shakers to cure what ails ya, while jocular Henry might turn you into a pink panther, leading to today’s homonymical query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”)would allow them their usual labs and medbays, which means the full slate of alien and/or future super-science to fix your ingrown toenails, asking: Which of the Doctors McCoy would you choose to deal with your particular illnesses?


About Author

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.


  1. I love Hank McCoy, but dude is straight up a mad scientist with a thin veneer of hero keeping him from going full Sinister.

    Bones as my personal physician any day of the week.

  2. life or death, i’d much rather deal with Bones McCoy’s saltiness in exchange for his medical expertise. not to insult Hank McCoy’s intelligence, but he always seems to be more the “catch-all smartest guy on the team” who deals with all things scientific, where if you ended up in the Enterprise’s medbay, you know you’re by and large getting a straight-up medical doctor.

  3. I am not a mutant, and don’t particularly want to be one so Bones to the rescue.
    Besides he is from the future when the stuff that ails me should be pretty much curable by him.
