I really liked the Symbiotes from Marvel and I did some thinking of building my own creature species that isn’t similar to the Symbiotes except I don’t seem to know how to make them different from Marvel’s idea. Perhaps some advice would help.
I may have thought it as an inspiration from Marvel, but I originally had the creature be like a type of human-made bio-armor that went wrong. I’m still working on it, I thought it can separated from two classes: Servant and Soldier
Servants look more plain and not ferocious, but can perform Elasticity, Rapid Regeneration, Supernatural Strength, Speed, Durability, and Agility.
Soldiers look more monstrous and have small spikes in puddle form. These can do the same like the servants, but can do more powers than the servants like Natural Weaponry...
Hope this helps get a clear idea of what I want here.
