Which, as I already explained, is where the genetic effects of the goblin
serum, now in their DNA, has allowed them to survive the process...it's
modified it a few degrees to one side. These aren't normal kids because of
their altered DNA so it's reasonable to accept that it would have an effect on
this aspect.

Look...all of comics and science fiction are, to one degree or another, based
on rubber science. We can argue this all day. You can choose to accept it, or
not, but you can't say it's not legitimate, any more than ANY kind of SF,
fantasy or comics is acceptable.

Otherwise stop buying comics altogether, because it's ALL rubber science, and a
lot of it doesn't even aspire to THAT level of justification.

You don't like it. But that's not the same thing as showing it ain't just as
valid as anything else out there.
