If Paige Guthrie (Husk) was slimed by Toad, would she be able to shed it off or would she need to be saved? I would think so, but I am just looking for another point of view.
Yes, I'm fairly confident that Husk could escape Toad's slime, for two reasons:
When she sheds her skin, it physically comes off, like a snake. Anything stuck to the outside of her skin would likely come with it. Even superficial injuries to her skin disappear when she sheds. The only way I can see this not working is if the adhesive slime somehow prevented her from removing the skin from her mount, in which case:
Beneath her skin she can trans-morph into other substances, including liquids. Worst case, she could morph into water and simply let herself flow away from the slime before reverting to her original form.
Without a doubt, yes. Paige Guthrie (Husk's) mutation deals with, and I'm quoting Marvel Comics Database here: Transitional Omni-morph. It goes on to state the following: Husk has the mutant ability to shed her outer layer of skin and reveal a new state or shape underneath. Her power can cause random changes if she activates it without thinking, but by concentrating on specific chemical or elemental formulas, she can control the nature of her transformation (end quote). Now, over the years, Paige has shown the ability to transform into wood, rubber, glass, granite, metal, diamond, and even Adamantium, which, apart from Uru and vibranium, is one of the most rare and deadly metals in the Marvel Universe. Add to the fact that most of these forms have given Paige increased stamina, strength, durability, flame-protection, and even amphibious talents, not only would Paige be freeing herself, she would be in a much more dangerous form than before the sliming. Take into account that she has managed to 'husk' a form that can damage Kitty Pryde while she is phasing and a form that can melt Colossus' organic steel skin, and Toad is done for.
