, who played Toad in X-Men
(2000), plays season 4 recurring character Edgar. Also, in one episode, the character of Micah receives a set of classic Marvel comics (Silver Surfer, Incredible Hulk, etc); in another, Hiro and Ando visit a comics store and Hiro mentions several Marvel characters such as Spider-Man. See more
