Here’s another two villains you’re likely familiar with. Both the Blob and Toad are classic X-Men villains. They’ve both been members of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants as well as Freedom Force. You saw a more modern take on Toad in the first X-Men movie, and the Blob showed up in Wolverine Origins.

The Blob is a very straightforward foe. He’s big, he’s tough, and once he sets himself somewhere, he’s very hard to move. He’s an excellent mook, distraction or part of a supervillain team. You can also use him as a living obstacle. The heroes have to get to the power core before the timer ticks down? What happens when the Blob blocks the narrow hallway?

The Toad is a classic stooge or number 2. He’s got a dependent mentality that helps him loyally latch onto anyone who shows him a shred of kindness or belonging. He’s changed far more over the years than other characters. He’s a lot smarter and a bit more confident than he used to be, and may even form his own team. His powers have also developed further along than just being an excellent leaper. His tongue now stretches out further than his own fight, with incredible strength and maneuverability. They also act as a pheromone delivery system, giving him powers of suggestion over others.

In House of M, Toad is a member of Wolverine’s elite Red Guard, and an expert SHIELD Agent. Blob is a NYPD Officer and member of the Mauraders. He’s with the team when they take on Captain Britain and the rest of Excaliber. If you’re not heading in that direction, he’d make an excellent member of the Genoshan guard.
