"The Program rigged my body so it produces a Corrosive Element specifically designed to attack an opponent's Healing Factor. In other words, the more Sabretooth's body tries to Heal itself...The Worse it gets."
― David North/Agent Zero (Weapon X 2002 #3)

The power to reverse accelerated recovery and worsen pre/post-existent injuries. Sub-power of Health Manipulation. Variation of Power Reversal and Unhealing. Opposite to Regenerative Healing Factor.

Also Called[]

  • Anti-Healing Factor
  • Healing Inversion
  • Regenerative Disruption/Reversal
  • Reverse Healing Factor
  • Degenerative Healing Factor/Degeneration


The user can affect a target's healing process and tweak it in order to worsen affliction/injuries. Targets with enhanced recovery abilities have their power inverted to worsen physical conditions by magnifying the severity of existing wounds, reasserting old afflictions and worsening a naturally healthy state.




  • Users of Absolute Regeneration are unaffected.
  • Effects are only tactile and may require direct contact to take effect.
  • Only works on those with a Healing Factor. Outside means of affecting healthcare may defuse this ability.
