I was reading a Wikipedia article the other day and noticed under Ultimate Toad's power list, one was stated as: the ability to spit a thick mucus-slime that hardens into a thick shell. Now, I could be wrong, but I don't recall seeing Toad use this attack, which would probably have almost the exact same effects as the film slime.

So, my question: Has Ultimate Toad ever been shown to use mucus-slime in any of the Earth-1610 "Ultimate" comics?

  • FWIW, the Marvel wiki also lists this as a power (which makes sense, as the movies are largely derived from the Ultimate versions of the characters.) marvel.wikia.com/Mortimer_Toynbee_(Earth-1610) – KutuluMike Jun 4 '15 at 1:17

    Much like the magic rock that I carry in my pocket that helps ward off tiger attacks in the jungle, the absence of examples does not necessarily mean that it is not true. – phantom42 Jun 4 '15 at 2:03

    @phantom42 Homer Simpson would disagree. – Daft Jun 4 '15 at 6:25
  • @phantom42: It would probably depend on whether the edit came from an official source. That said, I think that it might be better if the question were "Has Ultimate Toad ever shown the ability to spit mucus-slime in the comics?" to clarify that they're looking for actual evidence of use. – FuzzyBoots Jun 4 '15 at 10:05
  • @SeanDuggan Correct, and Marvel Wikia is not an official source, and interestingly Marvel's site does not have a listing for Ultimate-Toad. It does note that the Earth-616 Toad does have those powers now. – phantom42 Jun 4 '15 at 11:49

If he can, he doesn't use it or indicate that he can.

In battle, Toad of Earth-1610 primarily leaps onto opponents and grapples them with his tongue. In situations where he's close enough and has a clear shot, he still uses his tongue:

None of the dialogue around the character seems to indicate that he has spit powers.

Something else of note is that there's never even a hint of spittle or slime coming from his mouth, even when we see his face close up. By all accounts, spitting is not an ultimate power. The Wikia quote is probably just an assumption based on most incarnations.
