To my understanding, this is also very similar to how movies often get bullet-proof vests wrong...

You are not wrong about the bullet proof vests. The vest may stop a bullet from puncturing your vitals, but the concussive force of a bullet can still cause damage not unlike being hit with a sledge hammer.
Microraptor edit delete reply
Yes, thank you! The sledgehammer is a good analogy!

yeah dude, you're right, you don't want to stop a bullet under any circumstances

Also, if the bullet just ricochets off you, that could prove very harmful for people around you!
(Not that Lena would mind though...)

I'm still hung up on the language of birds thing. Mating season will either be a series of poetic love songs or just wall to wall cat(bird?)calls.

New theory:

Birds chirp because all those crude things they say nonstop have to be bleeped out!! 8-O

Of course, there's still the matter that no matter how 'invulnerable' you may be, Nerve Endings tend to still function, and pain, by itself, can do a lot of damage. Taking a bullet to the head, for instance - that's got to be even more dire than getting a 'simple' concussion in a sports scrimmage!

Seems like that for invulnerability to work effectively, it would require a lot of secondary superpowers...
