The Host is a living, sentient pathogen that may have been developed by Harrison Taylor.
The Host infected Mystique but was ultimately defeated by her.
Reports seem to vary as to whether the Host is a mutant who can infect people with various diseases, or whether the Host is actually a sentient, living pathogen. The actual nature of the Host may have been ambiguous in the stories in which the character appeared.
The Host appeared as a "green-haired woman." Was this a human or mutant infected by the Host? Or was this the Host itself or herself?
