History:  Since birth, Toad has been cursed with a grotesque physical appearance. As he matured, the other children considered him a freak and tormented the youngster mercilessly. When he reached puberty, Toad's mutant abilities manifested. During this time, Magneto recruited the youngster to join his cause. The Master of Magnetism recognized that Toad shared his belief that humans should serve mutants. Toad traveled to the Savage Land, a forgotten jungle, and found the mutant refuge Magneto and Charles Xavier had created. Mortimer saw eye to eye with Magneto and stayed at the Savage Land as a part of Magneto's Brotherhood of Mutants, an organization bent on destroying humanity and allowing mutantkind to take their rightful place at ruling the world.
