I was just wondering.. has anyone heard of replacing the whole endoskeleton [of humans or not] with metal? I know they currently can replace an arm, or a hip but what every bone?

I mean something like in either the Terminators or what they did in X-Men. Is such a thing possible? If not now, in the future?

Considering how imprortant the marrow in your bone system is to the rest of your body.... I'd say it's a bad idea.
Heck, according to Marvel the only reason why Wolverine survived it was because of his super healing factor.
As for Terminators, those were machines with a human paint job.

You do know those were MOVIES and COMICS right?

I assume the OP was talking about real, grown up world.

Then again maybe not.

I was referring back to OP's statement.
He mentioned Xmen and Terminators as a reference.

I was merely pointing out that even in the fictional context it's presented in, it's regarded as a bad idea.
