X-Men Pin-up FRAMED #27 Wolverine Infected w Brood Marc Silvestri


SKU: 10563 Category:


The Brood are parasitic and must steal the bodies of others to reproduce, making them one of the most insidious alien menaces in the Marvel universe. Unlike other parasitic creatures, these embryos do not grow their own bodies, but rather take over the host’s, changing it into their appropriate form. The embryos are also fully intelligent even before they are “born”. Apparently they pass on a racial memory to their descendants, possibly including some from their hosts. It takes some time for the embryo to gain the ability to take over its host; in the meantime, the embryo can gain control of the host occasionally, often without the host noticing (since they remember nothing while they’re under the embryo’s control.) If the host possesses any genetic powers, the resultant Brood will inherit them. What happens to the persona of the host once the Brood is “born” is not clear; it appears that it is extinguished, but in some cases, it survives and coexists with the Brood’s. Some Brood have been shown as being able to switch back-and-forth between their host’s form and their true one, even changing form only partially if they wish. Wolverine’s healing ability purges the embryo but taxes his healing factor to the limit.
