I posted this on my DeviantArt over a year ago. A frequent commenter noted that I am "not afraid to let [my] characters get fucked up".
He's right.
Mind you, aside from the "gore" factor, here's my thinking:

It always kinda bugged me how all these superstrong people who can topple buildings with one punch are always smacking each other around, but no one ever seems to even get a bloody nose that lasts for more than 2 panels.
I can understand 'healing factor' on SOME folks, but, it seems like EVERYONE has one.

That gets me to thinking... does Batman have a mouthful of false teeth?
Does Daredevil have a seriously deviated septum?
How many of those lovely, supermodel caliber superheroines that we all love and lust after would have faces like ex-convict MEN in real life due to all the constant beatings they'd take?

I like my supers a bit less traditional most times. People forget, what with all the hype and gimmicks and pandering to the younger readers and fans, that, if superheroism existed, it would be the most dangerous, physically stressful/harmful job in the world. It would make being a cop or a soldier look like being a kindergarten teacher. That sort of thing doesn't come without scars.. mental, emotional and DEFINITELY physical.

I admit, 2 or 3 of the StarBrats have 'healing factors' of their own and will, more often than not, start a storyline looking pretty, but not ALL of them, and I will explore the medical side of fighting for one's life as the story progresses.
