By now, I believe we all know that as a speedster, Quicksilver is no where near the Flash’s level (or any speed-force user for that matter), although I might not be too far off to say that he is probably the fastest jerk on foot. But he is definitely a really cool character nonetheless, so I have decided to dedicate a Respect Thread to him.
First of all, I admit that I don’t know how to get images on these forums. Also, there are no other known Quicksilver Respect Threads so I couldn’t post a link to one either. Instead, I did the next best thing that I could think of and I took a variety of pictures I found over the internet and posted their links here. Enjoy.
granted, when he "destroyed the shackles," he was getting a pep talk from a disguised magneto and may not have destroyed them at all. it very well could've been magneto talking his son up, and just doing it for him.
also, though you've only got the cover scan, the fight v. exodus is amazing. he taunts the red-faced demon into using a psionic blanket attack, but is miles and miles away in the split second it takes exodus to use it. i think he punched the kleinstock brothers apart, too.
if i can get to the scanner sometime soon, i'll post the few quicksilver feats i can find.
oh yeah, and when he ran to the US, it was said he did it faster than the quinjet could've, meaning he was going well over mach 4. for someone who'd previously topped out around 200 mph, that's damn good. and, with the exception of northstar whose powers operate in an entirely different manner of locomotion, pietro is the fastest running-based speedster on the planet. fastest one born here, at least.
