27 hours just for one bone? Incredible.

"Two hundred and five to go."

Now that's determination.

I imagine now that the doctors know their
process works, they will be more
aggressive in replacing all the bones. I
am looking forward to seeing how JB
handles replacing the skull if he shows it
in a panel.

True- any surgery that's being done for the first time can take AGES... the first heart transplant took many hours, but today the process is streamlined and the variables are much better understood.
As things go along, the team will surely speed up this removal and replacement, though finding and taking out stray chips of bone might be the one thing that moves slowly by necessity.

Working on his skull might well come last, as that looks like a formidable challenge. At least those bones appear to be reasonably intact, compared to the rest of him.

"Where's that lovestruck nurse?!  If she doesn't shave his arm before surgery, it will add *hours* to the operation!"

(But all kidding aside -- this is awesome, JB.)

It takes so much time because there are tiny fragments everywhere...

I think that that will speed up too as they get practice in finding and removing them, but even so, that's likely to remain one of the more time-consuming parts of the surgery.

Yes, the implied logic here is that not all his bones are shattered, but all must be replaced, as any biological material left in his skeleton would be a dangerous, potentially fatal weakness.

I used to think of Ben Grimm as the "toughest" character on the Marvel roster.

Now though... I'm not so sure.

Funny - Marvel went with injecting liquid metal into his bones which logically would've burned him up from the insides (ala what Phoenix did earlier to mush his brain), but this method which was rejected iirc as too 'unrealistic' makes a LOT more sense given Logan's powers.  Always interesting to see different ways writers handle impossible situations.

Logically none of it is possible.  But then neither are flying people, blasts from the eyes, etc.  However, this fits closer with what we do see in real life (limbs replaced).  I've never heard of liquids being injected into bones - although who knows with how science is always advancing.  Seeing how insanely tough Logan is here - which fits his character when written well imo.  Looking forward to the next page.

Too true- a stray bullet doesn't care what it hits and, given what they expect him to do, his head would have to be even better protected than the rest of him.
