Marvel Medicine is anything but a marvel

If you have a magic problem you go to Dr. Strange, if it's a science related one you go to Mr. Fantastic.

Doc Samson was a decent psychologist but he always seemed to have issues when it came to Bruce Banner (I think the Doc was a little green himself). Now that Samson's dead (for now) we need a new super-psychologist/psychiatrist. And no, Moonstone does not count. If we're talking people who make you worse instead of better then we could go with Dr. Faustus or Mister Fear or any of dozens of psycho psychologists in Marvel's playpen.

Something that I've always wondered about is where do superheroes with nigh-invulnerability go for medical treatment? I mean, we already say that when Luke Cage had a bullet lodged in his chest that HAMMER had to use a superpower nullifying energy field in order to operate. What happens when a superhero (with a public identity or not) ends up a normal hospital? If the diamond/silicone/titanium cutting implements don't work, then what? Do you just check for a superhero? It's not like Cyclops can bore a hole in your skull to relieve intracranial bleeding (well, I guess that depends on his level of control, if it's anything along the lines of how anal retentive he can be, you'll be just fine).

What do you guys thing?

Id say between The Beast, Hank Pym and SHIELD, most superpowered folk have somewhere they can turn too.

SHEILD might leave behind a cranial bomb or mind control device though.

It seemed to me that Drs. Blake and Strange used to get most of the super-hero medical issues that didn't involve robotics.

LOLling so hard at the Human Torch one, especially since I hear it in Chris Evans's voice. :))

I love that Mephisto is the Night Couples Therapist.

By day, Dr. Mark Histo is a mild mannered couples counselor, but at night, in the presence of couples the fans truly likes, he becomes MEPHISTO! Lord of the underworld, with the ability to give the middle finger to an entire fanbase with bullshit retcons.

It is true the Watcher's oath is kinda crap.

Why can't they spell the word "why"? "Wy if" is just sort of annoying to read.

I read this graphic novel called "Metadocs" about a hospital that caters to super-powered patients. It was pretty interesting.

For a second there, I thought that Ghost Rider was moonlighting as a doctor.
