Bian Que was one of the earliest Chinese doctors whose medical abilities were mythical. Supposedly, he met an old man who stayed at the hostel Que worked at for many years. In gratitude, the old man gave him a packet of medicine that had to be boiled in water. Que gained an x-ray like ability to see into the human body, along with an excellence in pulse measuring and acupuncture.

Many legends circle him, from seeing the spread of disease inside an emperor’s body to using anesthesia for a double heart transplant. However, the needles came an event where he realized that a prince had not actually died, but had entered into a coma-like state. Que stuck one needle in the prince’s head and he regained consciousness and recovered in twenty days from Que’s prescribed herbal treatments.

It was used to cure Subhas Chandra Bose of his burns after Warehouse agents shot down his plane.


When poked into the skin, it turns the skin and flesh transparent, allowing people to see into the body and notice obstructions without surgical means. Injuries such as swelling, bleeding and bruising show up as a dark blue, while more serious ones such as broken bones show up dull green. Diseases show up as red, showing all parts of the body it has spread to; the origin of the disease is usually a brown color. Colors that pulsate with threads of gold and black are serious and needed to be tended to first.

When taken out, any problems or anomalies with the skin are healed, including burns, scars and even tattoos. The skin cells will quickly regenerate to replace any cells that were destroyed and then revert back to normal. However, the user will feel like their skin is being tugged tightly, which is reported to be momentarily, but very painful.
