372) Regeneration

Regeneration – Regeneration is the ability to survive major injuries that accelerated healing would not be able to handle.  Some gods and the Eternals (Marvel) have the power of regeneration and can only be destroyed if a significant number of their molecules are dispersed.  Regeneration means the character is near immortal not just resistant to injury.
