Which Superhero do you think can help us in our current situation?

With the sudden announcement that the circuit breaker is extending till 1st June, some Singaporeans’ are shocked but most of us understand why this is necessary. One intriguing situation popped up on Monday and completely disappeared by the next day. If you are still clueless as to what I'm saying, take a look at this image:

YES, it’s not fake news. Singapore tried to brighten up everyone’s day with the introduction of a superhero team, Virus Vanguard Avengers. The team is supposedly able to help curb the COVID-19 pandemic when they work together. On gov.sg, it was stated:

“In a parallel world, the Virus Vanguard is the advance guard in our COVID-19 battle,”

Instead of fending off the pandemic, the quintet disappeared quietly the next day as though Thanos snapped them all out of existence. Gov.sg gave a statement saying, ”We have received quite a lot of feedback on the characters and we will be reviewing them. We are sorry if we offended anyone,"

Due to this, we wondered if any Superheroes from our comic/movies will be of any use when facing the COVID-19 pandemic. For this writer, one character that I immediately can think of is Elixir from X-Men. From his name, you can guess that he can heal anyone, and to take it further, he even revived a huge number of mutants all at once in one of the comics.
