    Default Most potent poison/illness in Fiction?

    Just curious. What are the most awful sicknesses or poisons in Fiction? Anything that has a deleterious effect on someone's health if infected, injected or exposed is fair game. Pathogens included - but particularly interested in poisons.

    How would these things stack up to advanced healing factors or physiology? Wolverine? The Hulk?

    So let us cast arms aside
    And like discard our wrath

    Whilst we find the path"

    I seem to recall literally no one in the Marvel universe being able to cure cancer that time... I think Quasar's mom got it?

    You may of time Captain Mar-vell died of cancer and no could save him, then we later find out that Wakanda had a cancer cure but was holding back because the world wasn't ready yet (never mind that Mar-vell is an alien).

    Or how Norman Osborne cured Deadpool's cancer, specifically so he could kill him with it.

    I just remember him trucking around the universe asking anyone and everyone for help and them being like "newp, can't be done" up to the point where he tried to threaten Death and was finally like "okay wow I really need to calm down." Cannot for the life of me find any reference to the event though.

    And yet T’Challa was also one of the people working on trying to cure Mar-Vell. Unless he just couldn’t give any fucks about Mar-Vell and was just feigning interest.

    I thought it was because the rest of the world didn't show Wakanda "proper respect" without defining it, even though the world was basically offering them a blank check for it.

    Of course, even if Black Panther had given Mar-vell the cure, it probably wouldn't have worked because Mar-vell's cancer was likely as incurable as Aunt May's gunshot wound (which NOONE could cure, not even Doctor Doom, Doctor Strange, or Elixir. And he asked all of them.).
    Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence.

    Jornmunger venom from Scion 1st Ed could kill GODS pretty quick. And we're talking the old school Norse/Greek style guys.

    The Bydo are basically a virus that infects universes. That probably rates pretty high. Depends where you draw the line for disease, since to the people living in a universe, they look more like invading aliens, but they're really just converting all matter and space to themselves.

    I feel like we discussed these guys once before. They work on a veeerry similar MO as the Flood. Right down to the metaphysical space infection nonsense. The Bydo are perhaps a bit better in that last regard, but the similarities are there.

    the hate plague. a virus that infects humans and robots, forcing them to fight each other to the death.

    the only way to stop it?
