In the first X-Men film, during the Statue of Liberty fight, Cyclops, Wolverine, Jean Grey, and Storm are ambushed by Mystique and Toad, who had both been alerted earlier of the X-Men's arrival. Within less than 5 minutes, Wolverine is stuck fighting Mystique in another section of the Statue, Cyclops is locked in a display case, Storm is locked in an elevator shaft, and Jean is slimed by Toad. I am curious, however, if the first X-Men film is the only instance of Toad sliming her, or if maybe it was shown again in one of the animated series or comics. Any and all help is appreciated

    Not trying to discredit the question, but why are you looking for such a very specific event? Just curious :) – Flater Aug 22 '17 at 11:09

    Found the stack exchange recently, and was intrigued by the 'toads-spit' tag. As for the event in question, I know that certain elements from the film were later incorporated into the comics; New X-Men showed the characters in the black leather, X-Men Forever briefly gave Mystique the blue scales look, and Toad was changed to be more like the Ray Park character. Just wondering if the Toad sliming Jean scene might have also been alluded to at some point. – Gothamite24 Aug 22 '17 at 14:14

    As Toad's powerset did not involve saliva until the film and the X-MEN FOREVER (2001) miniseries, and as Toad was not an active supervillain at the time, and as Jean died about 2-3 years after the mini-series - probably yes, the only time (unless it happened in that mini-series). – RDFozz Sep 29 '17 at 19:40

    @RDFozz-That sounds like a pretty good answer to me. I believe there are 6, maybe 7 issues in that run, if you wanted to check. Also, at Edlothiad, how is your research going? – Gothamite24 Oct 1 '17 at 15:04
