I don't see how walking up walls fits with Toad's 'theme'. It just doesn't work, you know?

Why not? Toads and Frogs are able to walk on walls...

Walls? They can climb, yes, but walls and ceilings are smooth . . .

Man, it's a comic. Toads powers are quite more logical then the powers of most other mutants.

You know I'm a big fan of Toad, but Spidey is indeed the best Wall Clinger.

I think that the old Marvel comics villian, The Fly, would argue on those points.

His mutataed powers included extremely advanced (strong) wall crawling abilities.

Yeah, logic is left in the dust in comics. Oh, well . . . off to uselessly defend logic elsewhere, then.

You're seriously gonna ask why a Marvel character has wall-crawling?

Toads can stick to tree's or "climb" and MetH Has seen Lizards climb walls and ceilings. Toad's mutation can simply be a mixture of a lot of reptiles but decided on tHe name Toad because of His tongue powers.

Some toads can adhere to surfaces... so...
