Lifespan?

Since Mercury isn't a carbon-based lifeform, does that mean she is immortal? Her entire body is liquid metal so how would she be killed?

She might be "immortal" in the sense that she does not age. But she can be killed. I believe she was almost killed by the Facility with the whole Predator X arc.

I'm sure there is a way to kill her, but it wouldn't be of natural causes

That's what I wanted to know, thanks!

The Facility successfully managed to keep her contained, tortured and skinned her...  I'm sure after a while they would have found a way to kill her (although it suited their purposes to keep her alive).

It could be that her mind would shut down

I think she can most likely be killed

she can be killed by applying to much electricity to her body

i'll go with the cerebral shutdown theory, while vulnerable to electricity none of her subsequent attacks by it has seemed to cause any actual physical damage to her body... what she experiences from electical shock might not be akin to what we call pain, as it might be something a little different but all the more unpleasant to her, besides considering how many times shes be electricuted an almost certainly with more electricity than is needed to kill a normal person, (as I recall she was electricuted by Surge during the assault on Nimrod, and Surge was most assuredly not aiming to simply disarm Nimrod with the intital jolt.) the girl may simply be vulnerable to electro shock, like how Superman is vulnerable to Magic, but still more durable against it than say Batman is.

Can she rust? Probably not as her living liquid based metal body is "alive" unlike unorganic metal like steel or iron!
