Mortimer Tonybee, better known as the Toad, is a mutant and enemy of the X-Men team as well a super-villain in Marvel Comic books.
Toad first appeared as part of Magneto's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Toad, like the rest of the brotherhood, was treated cruelly by Magneto, but was especially disliked by the master of magnetism for his sniveling personality and general uselessness.
When the Brotherhood disbanded Toad, finally sick of Magneto's bullying, abandoned him, and spent some time stalking former teammate, the Scarlet Witch.
Toad eventually formed his own brotherhood, which served as a revenge squad against other mutant groups. After this brotherhood was defeated by Cable's X-force, Toad largely disappeared from Marvel comics. Recently the Toad has returned with an enhanced power set and a fighter's mindset.
Powers and Abilities
Toad's mutation has always been unstable, resulting in ability fluctuations over the years. Originally his only power was a superhuman leaping ability. As time has gone on he has gained and lost a variety of frog based ability's such as: A long prehensile tongue, the ability to spit gray goop, underwater breathing and communication with amphibians. One consistent trait is Toad's mutation causes him to release an offensive smell.
