Why is Thing not Poison Immune ?

I’ve been going for my recent completion of chapter 1 variant 2 and have made it to 1.3 with no revives or potions. Sadly I have no gladiator hulk so I decided to go the poison route with the full thing synergy team, only to learn he is vulnerable to poison.


Come on , he’s literally a pile of rocks

  • He is a human being, He is not just a "pile of rocks".
    The abilities he has is on his abilities page list, you can check it before starting a quest or a fight.It really was a mistake there

    I think of poison as a corrosive, not an infectious type effect

    I think it's fine that he does not, he already has a bunch of immunites. he like other champs needs to have balance.

    See those cracks all over his body? Liquid stuff could penetrate there. Hmm, someone with acidic, corrosive or venomous **** and spit it all over Thing's body would work, i guess? Lol

    Because you can still piss on a rock and defecate on a rock too. That has poison all over it.
    Technically, urine is sterile.

    This brings back another age old question, why isn't Iceman frost bite immune and Sabertooth is? It's just to keep the playing field "even" so to speak. Can't be immune to everything because that wouldn't be "fair". It's Kabam logic and it is what it is.

    Because Sabretooth has that warm coat. It protects him from all the cold elements.

    Immunities are subject to game balance decisions. But the question isn't why isn't Iceman frostbite immune, the question is why so many people think he should be.

    People have an outdated and physically nonsensical idea about what Iceman does. In the comic books, the modern canonical description of Iceman's abilities is that he's an energy manipulator: he can remove kinetic energy from a substance, especially water, and that's what makes it cold. Cold is the side effect, not the effect. That is because you can't really make things cold: cold isn't a thing. Heat is a thing: you can make things hotter by adding heat energy to it. There's no real limit to how fast you can inject heat into something. But to make it colder, the thing has to emit its heat. It can only do that so fast, and there's no way to speed it up any faster than what it can do intrinsically.

    So for Iceman to do what he does, especially to freeze objects solid basically in an instant, requires him to have special energy manipulation powers. Iceman is immune to cold, in the sense that exposing him to cold things does nothing to him. But there's no particular reason why he should be immune to energy manipulation powers.

    Sabretooth, on the other hand, has a powerful mutant healing factor. Because mutant healing factors aren't explained as to how they work, it is possible Sabretooth's healing factor can counteract the damage done by Iceman's energy manipulation powers. There's no explanation for how, but it is sufficiently ambiguous to be not entirely out of the question.

    Ice Man is poison immune and we all know poison can't penetrate water. Lol!
