Synopsis for "The Toad, Witch, and Wardrobe"
Mastermind is roaming the streets of what appears to be Venice, Italy making illusions to people that he walks by to change himself into other people to hide his appearance. He walks by a light post that starts to trimmer, and knows its Magneto and runs off. Magneto tries to cut Mastermind off by using his powers on some railing, but Mastermind jumps over the ledge and tries to run through a gate, but Magneto closes it before he gets a chance to go through. Mastermind tries to use his illusion on Magneto to no avail. Mastermind asks what Magneto wants with him, and Magneto says he has a job for him. After the intro is over, it cuts to a traffic jam on the bridge. Wanda in a taxi, followed by an explosion. The top of the bridge bursts into flames, Wanda gets out of her taxi and notices Pyro in the midst of the flames and hears his laughing.
At Bayville High, Kurt and Amanda is walking together on a sidewalk. Amanda is asking Kurt to come visit her parents, but Kurt isn't sure because his image inducer has been acting up. Amanda turns his image inducer off saying she wants her parents to meet the real Kurt. Kurt jumps behind a tree saying someone could see him. Toad is sitting on a trash can in an alley and sees him transform, he eats a fly and hops off. Kurt agrees to go to her parents, but says he's not ready to reveal his true form. They hear an explosion Amanda turns around and says hey look! And Kurt says something's on fire. Scott and Jean drive in his car next to the fire, Scott says it's coming from the bridge and Jean says let's go! They drive faster off the frame, and it goes back to Wanda. She fires her beam at Pyro who falls off the bridge, but catches himself on one of the wires of the bridge. He jumps over Wanda and drops something on the ground, which Wanda picks up. Pyro fires his flame throwers from the railing of the bridge at the Oil Tanker, which Wanda is standing next to. It blows up sending Wanda flying. She catches herself on the edge of the bridge with one hand, eventually getting her 2nd hand on the ledge too. The rods are on fire and start to break due to the heat. The bridge starts to corkscrew without the support of the rods on one side, the side Wanda is hanging from! Some cars fall into the river. A SUV begins to fall right next to Wanda causing her to loose grip with one hand, but she is able to regain that grip.The top of the bridge is completely in flames and begins to crumble on the cars, and people. Cyclops blasts a piece that is about to fall on top of a person. Jean uses her powers to stop another piece from landing on someone else. It begins raining, thanks to Storm flying overhead. Wanda pulls herself back onto the bridge. They ask her why Pyro was after her and she says he was delivering a message from her father. He wants her to stop looking for him, and for his errand boy, Pietro. Jean tells her that Pietro's not hiding, he's back with the brotherhood. Wanda storms off furious.
At the Brotherhood house, Pietro is on the couch watching TV. Blob brings Pietro some lunch, but it's not the way Pietro wants it, so he has him make a new one. The picture on the TV goes out, and Pietro yells out the window to Toad who is standing on the roof with an antenna. Toad starts to move to get a better reception and when Pietro says it's perfect, Toad is on one foot almost falling off the roof. Lance comes in with an oil rag and Pietro ask if he's finished fixing the transmission because he has dates tonight. Lance says he's finished. Pietro tells him that if he's going to be a member of his team he needs to look a little more presentable. Lance starts to walk off. Pietro asks him to move the armchair because it's in the way of the TV. Lance says sure and uses his powers to fling the chair at Pietro and through the glass behind him. Toad falls off the roof in the background and you hear him scream. He sees Wanda coming towards the house and gets scared telling the others not to tell her he's there, and hides in a closet. Toad opens the door and says "Baby cakes! You've come back to me!" Wanda walks in and pushes him aside. She asks where Pietro is and Toad tells her in the closet. Wanda uses her powers on the door and asks where Magneto is. Pietro goes on about how he only contacts him when he needs him. Wanda asks Pietro what the thing Pyro dropped was. Pietro doesn't know, but it looks like a Ski Lift ticket or something, Toad grabs it from Wanda's hand and notices Arrows which he says must mean Mt. Arrows, a local ski resort, and offers to take her there.
At Amanda's house. The doorbell rings, and Amanda opens the door. It's Kurt, he's there early. They go in to meet her parents and Kurt is acting extremely nervous. He gives her mom some flowers and she goes to the Kitchen to put them in water. The Dad goes into the kitchen to get some drinks. Amanda relaxes Kurt, and his image inducer begins to fail. Amanda's dad starts to come through the door backwards with some cold drinks, and Kurt's inducer fails. He panics, and teleports into the Kitchen as her dad is turning around. He wonders where Kurt went. Now in the Kitchen, Amanda's Mom is still putting water in the flowers, and Kurt is behind her. He bangs on his inducer and gets it to work as she turns around. She's startled and they both scream. She goes to put the flowers back in the living room, and Kurt's inducer fails again. He starts to bang it some more, and Amanda's Dad begins to come into the Kitchen calling Kurt's name. Kurt teleports back out by Amanda. Amanda's Mom is approaching her, and Kurt bangs his inducer again and it begins to work. She's startled again and drops the flowers; Kurt catches them, and hands them back to her. She wonders how he got out there so quickly, Amanda says he's on the track team. Her Dad comes back, and says he's ready to eat. Toad follows Kurt to Amanda's house, where Kurt is washing dishes, while Amanda's Mom is drying them, and Amanda is there too. Kurt is talking about how delicious dinner was, and Amanda's Mom thinks its sweet that Kurt offered to do the dishes. Toad hops through the window breaking it and causing everyone to get scared. He grabs Kurt's inducer causing him to change into his natural form. Toad falls into the sink full of soap and water. Kurt grabs his inducer and puts it back on changing into his human form right before Amanda's Dad walks in wondering what's going on. Toad slims Amanda's Dad, and jumps on Kurt knocking him over. They start to roll on the ground and Amanda runs over to help Kurt. Amanda's Mom tries to help Amanda's Dad out. She slips on some water falling onto her Dad, who can't see, and fall. Amanda grabs Toad's arm and starts to pull him away, while Kurt is pushing on his face. He apologizes to Amanda's parents.They are in the corner trying to get the slime off the Dad's face. Kurt rolls on top of Toad, but Toad kicks him away and Kurt lands next to her parents. Toad jumps at Kurt again and they land in the living room. Toad gets the image inducer off Kurt again, and he changes into his natural form and Toad escapes with the image inducer. Everyone looks shocked. Amanda asks who's up for dessert!
At some snowy mountains, Wanda is in a Mountain Trolley looking out the window. Wanda jumps off the lift and starts to follow Pyro. Eric jumps off too but obviously doesn't know how to ski and falls into the snow, the inducer fails and you see that it's Toad. Toad: Pyro is skiing through some trees with Wanda following closely to him. He jumps off a cliff, and Wanda doesn't pursue. She watches as Pyro approaches towards a large metal sphere. An opening appears and Wanda says Magneto! Pyro goes through the opening and it closes behind him. A floating ball comes in front of Wanda starling her, and gasses her with some kind of gas. Wanda passes out, and Toad sees her being taken into the Sphere. Kurt is angry at Toad and asks for his inducer back. They start to fight, and in the middle of the fight Toad asks for a favour and says he'll get his inducer if he helps him. It flashes to Wanda and Magneto. Wanda is strapped into a chair, and Magneto talks about expecting Pyro's clues to lead her to him. He wants to talk to her father and daughter. He tells her that leaving her in the hospital was one of the hardest things to do, and wants to start a new relationship, but Wanda doesn't want anything to do with it. Magneto feels that her quest to eliminate him is too large a liability. Since she won't cooperate with starting a new relationship, he'll do it by other means. He opens a door using his powers, and Mastermind walks out. He says Mastermind will delve into her memories and alter them, and hopes her mind isn't too damaged by the process. Mastermind begins to do that and it shows flashbacks of bad memories, and then shows how Mastermind alters them by turning them into happy memories with Magneto.
Toad and Nightcrawler are creeping back up to the Metal Sphere that Magneto is in. Toad says all Nightcrawler hast to do is get them in there and he'll do the rest. Nightcrawler is ok with that, but wants to get his inducer as soon as they are out. Toad then pulls his inducer out of his pocket and Kurt gets angry that Toad lied to him. Toad starts talking about how he just wants to look good for Wanda like Kurt does for Amanda, and how hiding who they are makes them similar, especially when it's for someone they care about and asks if he'll continue to help him out. Kurt agrees and Toad puts the inducer on turning himself into Eric the Ski Instruction, and they teleport inside. Gambit and Pyro are walking around a corner as they teleport in, they jump into a room where Colossus is picking boxes up. He hears them and turns around only to see their feet go behind a crate. He starts walking towards the crate, as he goes around the corner; all he sees is the teleportation smoke puff. He starts to scratch his head.
Nightcrawler and Toad end up in the room where Mastermind is going through Wanda's memories. Wanda is strapped into a chair. Mastermind senses company and tells Magneto. Toad slimes Mastermind but it doesn't really stick. They rush towards Mastermind, who also rushes towards them. Nightcrawler jumps over him and he falls. Toad (as Eric) tries to get Wanda out of the chair, but is having problems. You see Magneto floating around a circular hallway with Colossus, Pyro, and Gambit running behind him. Nightcrawler tells Toad to hurry up, and Toad asks if he has a better idea. Nightcrawler grabs Wanda and teleports her out of the chair. Toad holds her in his arms as Magneto and the other 3 arrive in the room. Nightcrawler teleport's them out. Magneto asks if Mastermind finished the job, and he says that he did, so Magneto decides to let them go. In a lodge by the Ski Lifts, Nightcrawler is looking outside a sliding glass door. He watches a metal transport ball leave and tells Toad he can put Wanda down. He says in a minuet. She starts to regain consciousness and sees Eric the Ski Instructor. They start to kiss. While kissing the inducer fails revealing toad, but her eyes are closed. She hears the noise and sees Toad and gets angry and punches his face knocking him down.
Wanda tells Toad to get me out of here, Toad is on the ground and looks sad. Nightcrawler tells Wanda You know, he's a slimy worm, but he did put his life on the line for you. Wanda looks at Toad on the ground.She closes her eyes and sighs then opens her eyes again. Smiling she says "Thank you." Toad sits up and gets a big smile on his face. You hear a fly buzzing around. He uses his tongue to catch and eat it. Wanda gets grossed out and walks away. He hunches over and looks really sad again.It cuts to Kurt in his human form, and Amanda walking in a park with the moon behind them. Amanda does not care that her parent won’t let her see Kurt she will continue to do so anyway. Wanda now has no issue with her father thanks to the memory wipe much to the confusion on Quicksilver. Toad decides if she can get over he father there is hope for him and he hops back towards Wanda, happy.
