Subj: Is there a story to be told in Toad's history?
Posted: Mon Jun 07, 2021 at 03:37:33 pm EDT (Viewed 102 times)

I'm reading through my early Avengers issues, and so I've run across Toad a couple of times. He is so truly pathetic that it makes me wonder how he ended up using sycophancy as his primary survival mechanism. It's consistent with Magneto, of course, early on; and then he tries it with Arkon when imprisoned in Polemachus.

Do you think a talented writer could pull together a limited series that gives us Toad's backstory, showing how he ends up accepting that his best bet in life is to kiss up to the biggest bully in such an unapologetic fashion? I'm thinking something that starts just before he gets his powers, and ends with him joining Magneto's first Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.
