A healing factor is a superpower that grants advanced healing.
A person who has a healing factor can recover from wounds and illnesses at a much faster rate than normal humans. This makes them highly resistant to diseases and foreign chemicals. They are better able to withstand extreme weather conditions. Their aging is slowed and, given just how powerful their healing is, may be seemingly immortal.
Shapeshifters are able to heal when they transform though they do not necessary have a healing factor.

The most famous example of someone with a healing factor is Wolverine. Since his archrival Sabretooth also has a healing factor their battles have ranged for a long time without any clear winner between the two. Cable was able to use Wolverine's healing factor to create antibodies against the Legacy Virus.
Mister Sinister created for himself an unnatural healing factor along with the rest of his powers.
Dormammu gave Carnage and Venom the ability to heal from wounds along with their shapeshifting abilities.
Spider-Man seems to have a limited healing factor.
Just like the comics, each person's healing factor changes according to the story. For example, in "Deadly Reunions" Wolverine is beaten by Sabretooth and his wounds continue to "Captive Hearts" but in later episodes he suffers much worse beatings and recovers much more quickly.
