Background

Professor Duellman was a noted herpetologist from Brisbane. His expertise was in the study of the cane toad. The cane was a serious ecological threat to Australia’s native wildlife, in that the toads were highly poisonous, and multiplied geometrically. Professor Duellman did extensive studies on the toad trying to find a way to eradicate or at least control the pest. The professor knew that the best would be on genetic level. A little change, say making the toads more susceptible to diseases might be the answer.

The professor was dismay and shocked when he published his research and found that no one would listen to his theories. A few fellow scientists even mocked him, calling him a crackpot.

One day the ridicule proved too much. In a rage, he took a cane and started to demolish his lab. Professor Duellman would not be mocked. The more he swung the cane the angrier he became. Professor Duellman barely noticed when the fire started, he just kept on swinging. Flames licked up the walls and eventually triggered a massive explosion.

Professor Duellman was thrown into a vat of bufotoxin that he had been experimenting on. He sunk like a stone. Soon only his hand showed out of the toxic soup and then it to was submerged. Professor Duellman should’ve died in the vat of toxin, but instead of killing him, the toxin mutated him.

The hand that thrust from the vat wasn’t human anymore, but more like that of a cane toad that Professor Duellman had been studying. The creature that exited the vat was no longer Professor Thomas Duellman; it was a toad-like giant of a man.

With the glare of his toady face, Professor Cane Toad surveyed the wreckage of his lab. Sighing loudly the professor regretted his rage. All his research was ruined. Oh well, he thought he now had a body that would demand respect.

Piecing together some lab coats to cover himself Professor Cane Toad started to leave the lab when a security guard accosted him. With an almost nonchalant wave of his hand a burst of purplish energy shot from Professor Can Toads’ hand striking down the guard. Professor Cane Toad bent over to take a closer look at the man and touched him. A strange transformation overtook the guard. He quickly took on a slightly similar look as Professor Cane Toad. When he opened his eyes the mutate bowed his head to his new master. Things just were getting better and better.

Personality

Even before his transformation, Professor Duellman was an arrogant man. He was always sure of his theories, and didn’t take criticism very well. In Professor Duellman’s world everyone should agree with him. Those who didn’t were fools, and unenlightened. Now that Professor Duellman has become Professor Cane Toad, this attitude hasn’t changed much, except to become worse. This time however, those who dare to disagree with Professor Cane Toad might be hit with his cane, or even worse turned into one of his mutates.

Professor Duellman has always had a problem with his temper. He’d get angry at the slightest criticism or perceived slight to his scientific genius. With the transformation into a super-villain his temper is that much worse. Professor Cane Toad can really hurt those who anger him. It’s not good to anger Professor Cane Toad.

All the powers that Professor Duellman gained with his transformation has gone to his head. Not only does the professor see this as a justification of his greatness, but also a warrant to seek even more power over his fellow man, and if he has to transform his fellow man into a mindless servant so much the better for Professor Cane Toad.

Quote

"Fools! Those so called Heroes of Australia are mere flies waiting to be devoured by the criminal mastermind known as Professor Cane Toad! Soon the world will tremble under my amphibian gaze! Beware! Mwahaaa haha!"

Powers

Professor Duellman’s immersion into the vat of bufotoxin has created a genetic change in him. Now as Professor Cane Toad, he has acquired similar traits as the cane toad. Professor Cane Toad has grown larger and stronger than a normal person; being able to easily lift a hundred tons over his head. His skin has become very thick, even wart-like, and acts almost like armor.

The toxin is still secreted by his skin, and those who physically attack Professor Cane Toad often find themselves violently ill afterwards. Professor Cane Toads’ toxic touch can transform another human into a toad-like mutate, who’re slavishly loyal to Professor Cane Toad. Professor Cane Toad can also secrete a toxin that cause dreadful hallucinations in his victims. Furthermore, Professor Cane Toad can eject poison from his hands that cause painful wounds to those no immune to toxins.

Like a toad, Professor Cane Toad’s tongue is extendible, and strike with the force equal to a pile driver. Professor Cane Toad has been known to even grab and throw his opponents with his tongue, which is completely prehensile. Also like a toad, Professor Cane Toad can leap over great distances with ease.

Appearance

Professor Cane Toad is a large toad-like man. His skin is a greenish color, but he doesn't have warts. His head is completely toad-like and his even greener eyes slightly bulge from his head. What hair remains on his body is a small goatee of tan hairs growing from his chin. Even though Professor Cane Toad is no longer human, he still likes to dress nice. He usually dresses in a white long sleeved shirt with a black suit over it. Due to his successes as a criminal mastermind, all of his clothes are expensive, usually silk. Professor Cane Toad always carries his cane, which is topped with an enormous white pearl.
