X-Men or Avenger? Pietro or Peter? Hero or Villain? Evan Peters or Aaron Taylor-Johnson? The story surrounding Quicksilver has quickly become a confusing place. We’re here to help make things a little clearer with a quick intro in…
A comiXology Guide to Quicksilver
Quicksilver made an appearance in the very earliest days of X-Men history alongside his twin sister Wanda Maximoff (aka Scarlet Witch) as members of Magneto’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants in Lee & Kirby’s The X-Men #4. Their membership in the brotherhood is tenuous at best, as it’s not a sense of evil but debt that keeps them under the command of the man that they will one day find out is their father.
Following the events of House of M, in which Quicksilver played a large role and we learn more of the relationship between Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, and their father Magneto we see a world where Quicksilver is now powerless in the mini-event Son of M. Crushed and defeated, his only hope and refuge lies with the Inhumans.
And if you’re one of those people who doesn’t care about the past, you only want the new and fresh and here and now, then you need to check out All-New X-Factor. Peter David, who penned some great Quicksilver in the 90s is back at the helm and he is known for writing the best version of the speedster.
