Issue(s): Avengers #53
...which i originally dismissed as Roy Thomas writing, but it's actually part of a plot to make Magneto think that they are disorganized and distrusting of the X-Men. Then Magneto brainwashes the X-Men...
...forcing them to fight the Avengers, so it doesn't matter anyway.
But the Toad gets sick of all the abuse he gets from Magneto...
...so he betrays him, setting Magneto's island to self-destruct and then fleeing with Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, leaving Magneto behind.
If John Buscema wants to draw Magneto and the X-Men, i'm not going to stop him, even if he insists on letting Roy Thomas write the story.
Quality Rating: C

Again I like Roy's writing and always have. Buscema's art was awesome of course. I really liked the Toad's worm turns bit because it was long overdue.

This is Beast's first appearance in Avengers. Many prefer him as an Avenger instead of being a X-Man.
