Note that "healing" means "Healing", not just anything that turns the dial towards the beginning. Xavin's trait lets his dial be reset back to the first click under some circumstances, but doesn't call this "healing", so Thanos' trait won't prevent it.
Hmm. I'm inclined to side with you. Any chance an orange could give us a ruling? Make it official and all that?
He's right. There's really no conflict:
Thanos A's trait means that characters other than Thanos A can't be healed.
Thanos B's trait means that characters other than Thanos B can't be healed.
Thanos A is not Thanos B, so he can't be healed.
Thanos B is not Thanos A, so he can't be healed.
Everyone else is neither Thanos A nor Thanos B, so they definitely can't be healed.
Now, if the trait read "Only Thanos can be healed", there'd be some issues, but it doesn't, so there aren't.
No, it's been consistently ruled that the use of a character's name in game text refers only to that specific instance of the character.
Right. That's what would create the problem. If the trait read, "Only Thanos can be healed," you end up with this situation:
Thanos A has a trait that says only Thanos A can be healed.
Thanos B has a trait that says only Thanos B can be healed.
So Thanos A tries to heal. He says only he can be healed, but the other guys says only the other guy can be healed. So who's right? Probably, it would be ruled that (implied0 can't trumps can, so neither could heal, but the point is, it's not as cut-and-dry as the actual wording.
"Only characters named Thanos can be healed" would also be problem-free. Both heal. And that SV Thanos over there heals too.
