Anybody know things about sharks?

So here's the thing that spawned that question:

So the question is, wouldn't that shark be suffocating in there? or would it be able to breathe since the space would quickly fill up with blood and it can pull oxygen out of it? I'm worried about shark-kun o3o

    I'm sorry, Spinny, but unless Nightcrawler can get in there and bamf shark-kun back into some water pronto, poor thing's been sacrificed to his vengeance. Blood will support its swimming, and given Fred's physiology I imagine there's enough to hold the shark in swimming position for a time, but the chemical differences are too great - the shark's gills can't extract enough oxygen from hemoglobin.

    but since it's not real life, no sharks were harmed in the making of this comic strip​​

    Damn....Nightcrawler is fucked in the head

    Well, I guess the guy did have it coming

    Not only are there not shark-sized spaces inside a human body (even a fairly large human as we have here), but sharks usually rely on ripping and twisting off chunks of flesh. The teeth don't project out of the front of their mouths, so this shark has no real way to even take a bite out of someone he's inside. Large sharks like this one also usually need to keep swimming in order to breathe - they need a current of water going through their mouth and out their gills. So really it will probably just asphyxiate and die and not chew anything. Of course having random shark in your body is probably lethal anyway.

    Reminds me of one of my favourite comic frames:

    Yeah. He should have just bamf'd all that broken glass inside of him.

    I feel like Nightcrawler could have been doing this all this time...

    Yes, and Kitty could have been dragging people halfway into the ground and then letting go. They're both generally too nice for this sort of thing. (Apparently, however, Kurt was sufficiently provoked here. Let this be a lesson to you - there are few creatures more dangerous than a genuinely nice person who's been pushed too far...)

    I'd question how Fred's stomach was actually big enough for Nightcrawler to fit, let alone that poor shark. Most people have internal organs and not an empty void....

    Whenever I want scientifically accurate storytelling, comics are of course the first thing I turn to. ;)

    Looks like Spawn is a fan of this maneuver too

    Not sure if this is the time I remember him saying "Let's play alien" before doing it

    I mean, maybe he bamf'd a bunch of air ahead of himself to make a space for him and the shark? Depends how fine his control over the bamf process is. Though that alone should probably have done a lot of damage to the guy... like imagine a volume of air about the size of a beach ball just suddenly appearing inside your gut.

    if you can form that much air inside someone's anatomy, you can save yourself a lot of energy by just forming a bubble of it in the bloodstream and letting the resulting embolism do your work for you​​

    Yeah that could kill you outright... Not immediately, but if it stays there, eventually.

    Yeah that'd make a really exciting comic panel, the two of them just kinda hanging out then the fat guy falls over u3u

    Or farting immensely...

    For that matter, if Kurt can just open a portal and shove things through, what's stopping him from reaching in a pulling something OUT? "Look! I got your liver! Don't you need that?"

    Kitty Pryde has killed people like that.

    That's Age of Apocalypse Kurt, he's much more of a badass edgy-boi than our regular Nightcrawler.... and the Blob did eat his wife.

    Want to get to know me a bit better, Click me and take a read of My Dragon Profile Page, it's a bit dated but still relevant.

    I take this quote from a review that I agree with.

    "customisation is so linear; everyone is after the optimal dps:survivability ratio with 0 reliance on other players = autonomous gameplay... Players don't need each other anymore... which in my opinion is a bad thing."
