The Quicksilver fansite

A tumblr about the Marvel speedster Quicksilver.

I wonder what Pietro would think if he knew about the huge crush Wanda has on Cap…maybe he wouldn’t trust leaving Steve with her alone :)

Wanda so totally wants to get into Steve’s pants : “Tell me Captain, do you never know fear?”. 

I also like Steve’s answer. He doesn’t aim for the obvious “That’s right, I am a fearless manly man”, but goes the sensitive guy route “only a fool, or a liar, says he’s never afraid Wanda”. Steve, you’re such a player :)

On the other side of the base, Hawkeye and Quicksilver are standing back to back against the enemy. You see what Stan Lee did there? This story began with Pietro and Clint fighting each other, but it ends with them fighting together . It’s so beautiful man  ;_;

Damn Captain America, I know you were born in the 1920, but that’s some sexist shit right there.

"Wanda, you’re a woman, pretend to faint"

The shit you have to put up with when you’re the token female…

I find Pietro’s complete lack of forethought about flooding the base to be funny and cute, when really I should be horrified and astonished.

More Hawkeye fangirling. I know who’s jumping into Pietro’s bed the moment this mission is over :) (if I were writing the Avengers, it would be a COMPLETELY different book)

I like to think that after their high-speed underwater chase where Quicksilver showed off his mad skillz, that Hawkeye has now completely fallen in love with him :)

Let’s talk Quicksilver’s new costume for a sec here.
In the case I never mentioned it before, let me say that I personally don’t like most of Quicksilver’s costumes. My favorite Quicksilver costume was the one he wore in the Ultimates. Incorporating the lightning in the costume has led to some pretty ugly designs, so I don’t mind it too much that there’s no lightning in this and his current ANXF costume. 
So let’s talk about this design : they’ve kept the light patches from his current ANXF costume. Yeah! I think the lights are a great substitution to his trademark lightning. The placement of the lights seem kinda haphazard though, with one light in particular very close to his crotch. I like that in the ANXF costume, there’s lights on his torso that sort of outline the serratus muscle (that’s the muscle that kind of look like gills, right underneath the pectorals on muscley guys). Basically what I’m trying to say is that I liked how human anatomy informs the design of the ANXF costume. Didn’t like the Y shapes on the knees though, but that’s another story.
I’m sort of ambivalent on the whiteness of the costume. I would have liked his trademark green or blue, but the white might grow on me.
I’m not crazy about the shoulder pads / stripes. And I don’t like the goggles as I’ve said before. It’s too remininscent of Speed. Speaking of Speed, I feel like artists are taking a cue from that character to redesign Pietro. Even the current ANXF costume has the head glove thing Speed had. The point is, it’s not so much that I’m against the goggles, but against making Pietro too much like his nephew. 
Lastly, and this is not about the costume, but I’m going to miss Carmine DiGiandomenico’s drawings of Pietro. I think he really nailed his look. I’m a bit scared of how Acuña will draw Pietro. From the looks of things, he’s making his hair a lot shorter and pointier which I’m not too crazy with right now.

Marvel Comics has provided ComicBook.com with an exclusive first look at the covers for the post-AXIS relaunch ofUncanny Avengers, showing off the Avengers Unity Squad’s new lineup.

The creative team of Rick Remender and Daniel Acuna return to the relaunched title, as do veteran Unity Squad members Rogue and the Scarlet Witch. New members include Scarlet Witch’s brother, Quicksilver, and her estranged husband, the Vision, former Sorcerer Supreme Brother Vodoo, the former Falcon and new Captain America, Sam Wilson, and Sabretooth, who is presumably still inverted following the events of AXIS.

This new Uncanny Avengers series is what Marvel was teasing with their “No More Mutants” teaser at New York Comic Con, which is offered as a variant cover for the issues. There’s also a variant by Gabrielle Dell’Otto.

UNCANNY AVENGERS #1
RICK REMENDER (w) • DANIEL ACUñA (a/C)
VARIANT COVER BY GABRIELE DELL’OTTO
Teaser Variant by Daniel Acuña
YOUNG VARIANT BY SKOTTIE YOUNG
COUNTER-EVOLUTIONARY PART 1

• From the ashes of AXIS an all-new, all different Avengers assemble!

• The tragedy at the end of AXIS has left the Uncanny Avengers vulnerable, and someone is taking advantage of it.

• One of the Avengers oldest foes returns with a terrible secret that will, all hyperbole aside, shatter the lives of two members of the squad.

• What is Counter-Earth? What terrible secrets does it house?

New outfit! I thought it was the bathing suit, but it is not. And I actually… love it? it’s too soon to tell (we’ll have to see how other artists draw it), but I’m optimistic.

So many questions about this line-up: Where is Havok? Why is Brother Voodoo alive? Sabretooth??? Vision… oh boy, we’ll see how it goes.

FINALLY! More details about this whole “No more mutants” teaser. Pietro goes from one sister’s team to another sister’s team :)

I just wish they’d remove Quicksilver’s goggles.

Hawkeye’s nicknames for Pietro includes “Whitey” and “Quickie”. Pietro has no nicknames for Clint :( 

Also octopus don’t look like that. Nowadays with the internet, it’s really easy to find reference photos of octopus, but I guess back then you had to wing it.

Preview for next week’s All New X-Factor 15.

NEED …. MORE….PIETRO….Seriously though, where’s Cypher? He’s the one character I really want to see in action because he’s gotten so little attention so far.

Somebody posted this on the CBR forums, and here I am adding it to my mountain of Quicksilver pictures. I believe this is from Clay Mann.

Hawkeye, didn’t you read “Sleeping Beauty”? You have to kiss Pietro to wake him up. :)

Wanda must be so happy. She’s getting some one on one time with Steve. :)
