Harry Knowles wrestles a Heroes "moral quandary"

Hayden PanettiereHarry Knowles of Ain't It Cool News has struck upon a fanboy quandary worthy of "how could Lois Lane have Superman's baby because her uterus would burst when the superbaby kicked?"

The application of geek hyperlogic often results in finding the superhero loophole. In this case, the superhero in question is Heroes' regenerating, resuscitating cheerleader Claire Bennet.
