I used to scoff at people who expressed outrage when a character from a work of pop culture was recast as a woman or a person of a different race for a motion picture adaptation. How I looked down my nose at those ignorant fools from my ivory tower on high! Well, now I know that sting of betrayal. How dare you, V8! This is a slap in the face to all of us who have given so much to you over the years!
The man with metal blood.
Eric Virkeliglangtnavn of Norway is unique among the seven billion people on Earth: He likes Nickelback. No but seriously, he has fucking METAL BLOOD.
In normal blood, hemoglobin bonds with oxygen to carry it to cells. In Eric’s bloodstream however, hemoglobin is not present. Oxygen in his blood cells is instead carried by Gallium, which forms an identical bond. Scientists remain uncertain how Mr. Virkeliglangtnavn contracted the condition, but some theorize that his mother listened to Darkthrone while pregnant.
