Some helpful advice for superheroes and citizens alike:

Unless you are indestructible/immune to all harm… or else the kind of absurdly wealthy superhero who has a live-in physician (or personal gentleman with field medical training) on staff—or you, yourself, are styled Doctor [Something]—you probably spend no small amount of time in hospitals, or at least at ambulatory clinics, getting stitches and tetanus shots and generally being put back together and readied to return to the streets. Save your receipts. Your medical—and dental—expenses are deductible, though only in the amount by which your total expenses for the year exceeds 7.5 percent of your AGI. Still, that’s nothing to sneeze at, even if you are the kind of superhero who doesn’t ever sneeze because you are invulnerable to germs.
