We Can Rebuild Him

Seriously, the future starts now. We now have artificial bone that can attach to tendons or ligaments. This is going to be completely awesome for reconstructive surgery (Good luck paying for it, of course), and even better when they figure out how to make it work for substances stronger than bone, because then an army of indestructible super-soldiers is just around the corner. Thank you Georgia Tech.

Blah blah gene delivery vehicle, blah blah three-dimensional polymer scaffold, blah blah no transcription factor, etc. Bring on the real-life superheroes already. As soon as those boys at Texas A&M figure out how to synthesize a working healing factor in their lab, it's time for a real-life wolverine.
