Despite his appearance, Hydra is not a multi-limbed hero. Hydra actually possesses an incredibly over active healing factor that allows him to regenerate decapitated limbs. organs, bones, and even blood at incredible speeds. Because his healing factor is so overactive, his body will often spawn multiple limbs to overcompensate for the first lost limb in a sort of defensive maneuver, resulting in multiple limbs regrowing on his body at any given time. After several hours his body will realize that the limb is useless and fall off, leaving the correct amount of limbs for him to function normally in society.
This is an idea I’ve had tumbling around in my head for quite some time. Glad to finally get him on paper. Also, I need to work on getting his character model finished. 02
