Rapid cellular regeneration, also termed spontaneous regeneration, rapid regeneration or regeneration, is the reflexive ability to rapidly regenerate one's cells so that they heal instantly from physical damage.



The ability allows one to heal instantly from almost any injury, even damage which would not eventually be restored naturally. Any body parts that have been removed can be reattached, and will sometimes grow back on their own if left for enough time. Any displaced parts such as bones or joints, however, must be manually reinserted in their correct position before they will heal. The blood of a person who has this ability is able to cure any injuries, diseases and restore another person's health back to normal when transfused, and when combined with Mohinder Suresh's antibodies, it can cure the Shanti Virus. The blood can also bring back a person from the dead if they have died fairly recently and the corpse is still in relatively good condition. It has been shown reviving a person whose body had been partially burned in a cremation attempt, and there doesn't seem to be any requirement for the blood to be pumped. The only exception to its healing properties are cancers, since the blood would only feed the tumour, and deaths caused by energy depletion or other reasons instead of actual physical damage. The individual would only be healed temporarily, and will afterwards continue to age as normal, as well as being susceptible to future injuries. It is a powerful ability and allows one to survive nuclear explosions, though at a slow rate, rebuilding the body completely. Very few methods can kill a person with this ability: either decapitating them, negating the ability and then fatally injuring them, or penetrating a specific part of the brain and then destroying the body. The ability also prevents the individual from ageing once they have reached full adulthood, effectively making them immortal. Because of this, a regenerator who has lived for several centuries can also be killed by removing the ability. Mental scars and damage, such as amnesia, can also be healed using regeneration, but unlike all other aspects of the ability this requires conscious effort to remember. The ability has also been shown protecting against the effects of certain energy-draining or fatal offensive abilities, such as some cases of death touch, absorption and life absorption, but this usually is dependant upon the strength of use of the other ability. An individual with regeneration cannot get drunk, and cannot get ill. Stronger drugs will work, but the individual will recover almost immediately once the supply of drugs is ceased. The ability can also advance, meaning that afterwards the individual will no longer feel pain when injured, and might not even realise that an injury has taken place. The advancement is often linked with a traumatic event or experience. However, the sense of pain will return if the ability is blocked in any way, and the person is likely to have a seriously compromised immune system at these times. With this ability, there is a high risk of exposure as an evolved human, since even a mere paper cut could be seen to heal more quickly than normal.
