The Quicksilver fansite

A tumblr about the Marvel speedster Quicksilver.

Aaaaw, Quicksilver totally loves Captain America you guys! 

I want more of this bromance :)

Yeah! Quicksilver escapes Kang’s trap! He’s not completely useless (with the way he’s written, sometimes I wonder)

Also, Captain America learned the Avengers were in trouble and rushed back to help. 

I guess Stan Lee was still trying to figure out Wanda’s power, because here we learn that she can “drain” her power leaving her weak and defenseless, and she needs time to “recharge”….Wanda is a battery everybody!

The Avengers mansion is so big, the team doesn’t realize it when an extra floor to the mansion is added by Kang…on that note, if Kang were smart he’d try to monetize his “add an extra floor to your house in seconds” technology. People would be all over that.

Wanda liked to oggle Captain America at the gym. She would probably wait impatiently for him to take off his shirt and lifts some weights. I know I would ;)

It’s kind of disappointing that Wanda’s crush to Steve never went anywhere because now I’m really curious about where it could have gone.

Man, Captain America, you as cold as ice!

Hawkeye was right, you ARE  a prima donna.

Some fanart of “All New X-Factor”. It’s Gambit and Quicksilver being sassy boys.

The thing that makes me saddest about XME is that Storm knew Pietro growing up. Like maybe they only met once or twice, maybe she mostly only knew him from stories Evan and his parents told her. (Evan seems like the type to talk about other people to avoid talking about himself and his parents seem the type to know everyone on Evan’s teams.) Pietro and Evan were best friends, and they knew each other for ever. 

All the Brotherhood’s stories make me sad, b/c they got shit deals. But I guess it feels different with Pietro because Xavier knew him - at least, he knew Magneto - and Storm knew him. Todd, Lance, Blob - no-one knew them well. But Storm knew Pietro, and Xavier at the very least knew what kind of father Magneto was - and that he didn’t even have Wanda to look out for him - but they still pushed him into the villain’s role.

I think the idea with X-Men Evolution Pietro is that it was in his nature to be a bad guy because his dad is a bad guy, and there’s nothing anyone could have done to deviate him from that path. It’s one of the bigger issues with a lot of children’s programming: they do their best to make the bad guys unsympathetic…because kids don’t understand ambiguity I guess.

I mean, like you said, most of the Brotherhood members have horribly dysfunctional families, as we can assume by the absence of parents in their lives. But the show never explores that, how a lack of family might drive the Brotherhood to be delinquents. They just skip to “They’re bad kids because that’s how they were born, and they’re irredeemable”…I know I’m probably reading too much into it, but that’s my impression of it.

It is a fascinating relationship. Erik grew up without a family, it’s such a huge part of him, of his mission. So the idea of exploring what it means for Magneto to be a father and reconnect with a son many years after his birth, is fascinating and certainly something that would be interesting to explore in future films.

Simon Kinberg on Magneto and Quicksilver’s relationship (and maybe showing it in future X-Men movies)

I demand Dadneto in a movie.

"That’s all your super speed is good for – making a fool of yourself!" Ouch! That really hurt Powerman.

Captain America tells Powerman he’s actually the weakest of the kooky quartet. Personally, I would think Hawkeye is the weakest because once you take away his bow, he’s just a regular guy. As for the strongest one on the team, you’ve got Quicksilver who can rely on his speed, but somehow still gets captured, knocked out all the time. Scarlet Witch on the other hand has unreliable powers but she’s managed to save the day a few times. I guess Scarlet Witch wins this?

Here’s a panel more modern comic book writers should read: Pietro explains that, though he isn’t a big bulky guy, the fact that he’s super fast makes his attacks have more force than you’d normally expect. 
This is a pet peeve of mine, that characters can always brush off Pietro’s attacks because he’s supposedly weak even though, logically, that shouldn’t be the case at all.
