They messed up the character big time but I liked Pat Mulligan as Toxin and I want them back the way he used to be in his own series.

yea Pat Mulligan as Toxin seemed like a great idea.. but im looking forwards to see what will happen to Eddie Brock as Toxin - too bad it looks like it will be mash up between his time as Venom and Antivenom

@RogueJuggernaut: @JMLG:

The main problem is that Toxin is no more. Now we just have a Red Venom.

and he hasn't been very interesting. What happened to Pat's influence on the symbiote, and Brock's desire to not want to be a villain anymore? Why is he psychotic again when neither him or the symbiote wanted to be.

The only symbiote character that isn't lame at this point is Flash and he's the best there ever has been. Every version of Toxin was wack, every version of Carnage was wack. All of those ridiculous a-sexual Carnage babies (Scream,Lasher,Agony etc.) were lame, Brock was cool as the first Venom & Anti-Venom but he's getting stale now, I like Flash better.

Flash is awful as a character and a symbiote host I feel like they ruined Eddie Brock's direction and Toxins just to make him look good.

Yep, bad writing and desecration of characters, it's why I dropped the book after the U-Foes arc. Until Pat miraculously returns I'm done with Toxin and Brock, and if that never happens then oh well, still have two good minis with Pat as the REAL Toxin.

@greenlucario: the sad thing is even though symbiotes got to be over done I really enjoyed seeing Pat and Toxin. They interactions were so cool.
