He'd be a supervillain though, surely?

I'm pretty sure some villains would be too relaxed to do any evil after a good massage! ;3

Hmm. Idea to be experimented with, actually. What abilities would it require to make it work? ....

The ability to beat down the forces of science and reason by firing libel writs out of his arse?

Possibly I have been reading too much Ben Goldacre. On the other hand, I'm not sure one can read too much Ben Goldacre.

Okay, you apparently mistook me for someone who believes in chiropractic. I don't and I tend to devour Goldacre's column as well.

However, in the context of this particular image, I was speculating on what kind of superpowers someone would have to possess in order to create the kind of effects chiropractictioners (or whatever the correct term is) claim to cause. Molecular level telekinetics?

Not really, I was commenting on the assumption that he was a supervillain (as mentioned above) and I sort of assumed you shared that perception.

I'm sorry if something that was intended as lighthearted came over as an attack.

Never mind. Tone rarely transmits well in web writing :-)

But the idea of a sort-of-a "healer supervillain" could be intriguing...

When I let the letters jumble I get Chirpy raptor and can't help but think of a cheerful supervillain that breaks all your bones, sucks out the marrow and replaces it with something else.
