Mastermind Monday - Toad Boy

I decided to take a break from the cosmic and post stats for an interesting background/plot device character from a comic series I was re-reading, Marvel's District X. The comic is set in NYC's Mutant Town (which doesn't exist in the 616 anymore) and centers around a local cop the X-Man Bishop. It was basically a cop drama, with mutants. I really liked the series. One of the characters that I thought was interesting was "Toad Boy." A similar character could easily be integrated into any M&M game.

Background: Tarquin Berdeaux, or 'Toad Boy', is a young mutant that has spent his entire life living in Mutant Town (a ghetto in NYC inhabited primarily by mutants and other undesirables). His mutation gives him a toad like appearance and the ability to secrete a neurotoxin through his skin. Toad Boy’s mother is a junkie, addicted to her son’s secretions. The naive boy doesn't realize his mother cares nothing about him.
Local gangs fight for control of Toad Boy, who’s secretions can be turned into an extremely potent drug called “toad juice.” The drug effects individuals differently. Mutants tend to suffer from severe addiction and euphoria. However, the drug is highly dangerous to humans, who typically undergo rapid random mutation with results in violent death.
