"Wreckered, part two"

Technically, I suppose you wouldn't need an adamantium needle to pierce Wolverine's skin, sure. But the X-Men probably have to be thinking about other possible medical emergencies. We've seen a few times the extreme measures needed to perform surgery on Colossus' metal body, for example. And I would have to bet at least some of the X-Men have to donate blood, to keep frozen in case they get injured and need it back: I wonder if a mutant like Nightcrawler's blood, is mutated to the point it's unusable for anyone else, or likewise if he could take a donation from someone else.

Say, does anyone remember if Angel's blood still heals people? Or has everyone blacked that out of continuity? I would completely understand if that was the case...

And the street name for the Wolverine tranquilizers was doubtless "inspired" by "Totally Awesome Sweet Alabama Liquid Snake" from Metalocalypse. Is their first album still available with the bonus tracks? Need to look into that.

Previous episodes: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, and eleven.

I love Nightcrawler's solution. Really, it's neat, it's elegant, and it's workable. Unfortunately, since it doesn't involve explosions, it probably won't be used much.
