    wouldn't she have been phasing the bullets into them? Also worm isn't THAT realistic :p

    It's nothing about her phasing. It's not like they're wearing armor, or anything.

    I just couldn't see all four dying so quickly.

    It's not impossible. It's just unlikely.

    As such, I'm feeling a little SOD strain, that's all.
    Zackarix and Prince Charon like this.

    Brian took two to the body (which he would've survived, given any sort of medical attention) then one to the head (which he wouldn't).

    Rachel took a shot to the carotid artery. She bled out in less than a minute.

    Lisa took a hit to the kidney and died from internal bleeding.

    Alec had a severe concussion from being kicked in the head, then got shot in the chest, which punched a hole through several important organs. He bled out to the point that Kid Win's actions in plugging the exterior wounds didn't actually stop him from dying.

    By the time Amy got to them, life signs had ceased.

    By the time the ambulance got there, they were basically beyond saving.

    So yes, while it's amazing what you can survive, the fact remains that this is amazing because of how often people do die from it.
