Found this on the website Comic Vine recently: Toad’s body also secretes a quick drying adhesive that he spits at his opponents. It wraps around them and dries instantly, incapacitating them unless they can break free.

Later, it is implied that this was adapted to the films, where he used it on Jean Grey. So, my question is, has Toad been shown to be able to spit quick drying adhesive slime prior to his portrayal by Ray Park in the first X-Men film?

    What kind of answer are you looking for? I tried to search for Synger (or related) interviews stating they had reworked Toad, statements from Marvel guys which would say something along the lines of "we changed comics Toad to match the movie", but to no avail so far. I'm reasonably sure this has never showed up in the comics prior to the movie, but that's not really a good answer. – Jenayah Dec 25 '18 at 13:34

    Yeah, that I understood, but what I'm saying is that what kind of proof are you looking for? As said above I think it was a movie upgrade, but I didn't find an "official" quote stating this (doens't mean there isn't one, of course). Assuming there isn't one, the only answer left would be someone saying "I've read all the comics featuring Toad, and there wasn't such a thing" - which may be tru,e but is also borderline in terms of evidence – Jenayah Dec 25 '18 at 17:08

    It looks to be a mashup of two of his abilities - the acidic spit and the quick drying paralytic resin both of which were obtained after his genetic damage due to the black womb project was corrected (This happens just before the Blood-Sport arc as he spits a bunch of his acidic spit on wolverine during it) [Though he could have obtained it later as I know he even gets a flaming tongue later in the comics and I have not read each and every one of them] – Karan Shishoo Dec 26 '18 at 4:37
