Toxin's powers and abilities

Toxin is considered to be stronger than both Carnage and Venom, and even possesses the "unique" special abilities of his two symbiote predecessors. He can stick to walls, can change his identity to that of a completely different person and also has unlimited webbing, which takes on a shape of a steel chain in his case. Toxin can also blend in with its surroundings and become undetectably camouflaged. He can also form solid weapons from his limbs like his father. Toxin also seems to have some sort of quick-healing ability, as his wounds from his first battle with Razor Fist healed remarkably quickly. Unlike the others, Toxin can track anyone, not just other symbiotes, as long as he has something to begin from. He can track easily within the entire city of New York, possibly further. Unlike the other symbiotes, Toxin does not try to take over the mind of his human host - instead, the symbiote actually thinks and voices its opinions to the human host (as evidenced in Toxin's Cut to the Chase storyline). The symbiote usually speaks when the host is in his "human form". In addition to that, it seems that he has a stronger resistance to sonics and intense heat, compared to Venom or Carnage) though this does not mean that Toxin is completely perfect: it can get carried away with violence and fighting crime (even if it's a petty crime). When he's not angry or busy fighting a villain, Toxin is slim and smooth-lined, although still well muscled, closely resembling Spider-Man in his Symbiote costume, although colored black/blue and orange instead of just black. When he becomes upset or begins to battle someone, he grows into a much bigger, much stronger form, with vicious fangs and long curving claws, looking like a cross between Venom and Carnage, but larger than either of them.
