As kids, everyone dreams of gaining superpowers like teleportation or the ability to read minds. Many boring school lessons are avoided by daydreaming about soaring through the air and living the life of a Marvel character. Unfortunately, none of these wonderful fantasies have come true for any of us---until now. In Scotland, a 71-year-old retiree was discovered to have Wolverine-like powers of pain tolerance and regeneration.

A Jovial Wolverine Woman

No, this isn't a dubious National Enquirer story that turns out to be a woman who just takes a lot of Tylenol. Jo Cameron's condition, a genetic mutation that would make her fit right in at Xavier's School For Gifted Youngsters, was chronicled in the British Journal of Anaesthesia, a reputable scientific publication. Amazingly, the kindly old lady has lived with this strange mutation her whole life without anyone in the scientific community catching on. She probably didn't want to bother them.
