Movie Morgue Wiki

Mortimer Toynbee - aka Toad - is a member of the Brotherhood of Mutants in the first X-Men film. He is recognised by his greenish-yellow skin and British accent. As well as his toad-like skin, Toad's mutation has also granted him a long sticky tongue, adhesive saliva, and the ability to leap great heights and distances. These abilities plus his tendency to eat flies and even live birds have earned him his nickname.


In the X-Men film, Toad and fellow mutant terrorist Mystique fought against the X-Men on Liberty Island. During the fight, the X-Man Storm used her weather control powers to create a powerful wind that almost threw Toad clear of the building. He used his tongue to hold on to a railing, but Storm summoned a bolt of lightning that struck him and sent him hurtling into the bay.
