What If? ... Super Heroes & CTE

It'll never be tackled, but I was thinking the other day about how CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) would absolutely plague the Super-Hero world. I can't think of a comic-book hero who wouldn't suffer from it's implications after a while. From repeated jumps & rolls off rooftops, to high falls, to cranium poundings, both the big u's would grind to a halt after maybe 10 or so years.

I could see an edgier, indie book tackling this issue one day.

Great thought! Comic books have tackled aging and cancer, so why not this?

Gene Colan Dracula? In Hand!!
And The Monster of Frankenstein? In Hand!!
Next? Will we ever see Werewolf by Night?!
