Mortimer Toynbee was a mutant with toad-like abilities, which is why his nickname is Toad. An early member of Magneto's Brotherhood of Mutants.


X-Men: Days of Future Past

Mortimer was one of a few mutant soldiers serving in Vietnam, others being Havok, Ink, and another mutant soldier. Originally, William Stryker was going to have him be sent to Trask Industries so he could be experimented on as part of Bolivar Trask's Sentinel program, but Mystique (who was disguising herself as a colonel) prevented Mortimer and the others from being taken, and he helped her fight Stryker and the other soldiers. He was then transported back home with the help of Mystique.

Original Timeline

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

After Vietnam, Mortimer at some point was captured by William Stryker for experimental purposes and was held in Stryker's facility in a cell with other mutants with his tongue out of his mouth. He was among Cyclops, Emma, Quicksilver and many others. He was rescued by Wolverine and Kayla Silverfox. He later escaped the island with the help of Professor X.


"Don't you people ever die?!"
―Toad [src]

Toad was recruited by Magneto and joined his team as an early member of Magneto's Brotherhood of mutants. He is very agile and can jump very high and has a long toad-like tongue that can extend at his will, he is seen mostly in the Brotherhood's lair and later on attacking a train station.Toad's high point in the film came during the battle with Cyclops, Storm and Jean Grey. By attacking Cyclops and Storm, with the highest point spitting his horrid suffocating mucus-slime attack onto Jean Grey's face, Toad is last seen when fighting Storm but is killed when she uses her power to strike him with lightning.
