- "We're all gonna die."
Personality and traitsEdit
- "My wife, Crystal, once told me I've spent my whole life running. An obvious and boring metaphor--But she was right. I never settled in any one place long enough for it to become my home. Left as soon as things got the slightest bit messy. Running from a long list of things that I'm not proud of. Running away from my wife. From my daughter. Focusing on the bigger parts while ignoring my real responsibility. It was never my fault. Always mired in rationalizations. They pushed me. They started it--I simply finished it. As long as I don't sink to his level, hey, I'm coming out ahead. It was just so easy. I'm his son--Of course I have his temper. But then Wanda cast that damn spell--And I lost my excuse. Why did I really come here? I said I needed to know the truth. But that's not it. I wanted there to be some grand plot. Some strings I could point to and blame. Anything to keep up the lie. Anything to get my excuses back. But I've been given a second chance. An I'm done running. Every triumph, every failure, I own them all. And while the thought of it is terrifying--It's also liberating."
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
- "Super-Speed. Google it."
Superhuman Speed: He was originally capable of running faster than the speed of sound (770 miles per hour). He had sufficient energy reserves that enabled him to run at this average speed for an unknown amount of hours before reducing his speed to replenish his body's store of energy. Quicksilver has used his powers of acceleration for various feats. He has plucked an arrow out of the air from a standing start, and has dodged machine gun fire. He has created cyclone-like gusts of wind, which are able to knock a man off his feet. He is able to run across the Atlantic Ocean and to oversea continents without having to stop, run up the sides of buildings effortlessly, and also seems able to use some type of energy, comparing it to "his father's power". After being captured by the High Evolutionary, where his powers were upgraded by Isotope E, his speeds have been increased until he was capable of reaching high supersonic speeds up to at least Mach 4 (3,080 miles per hour), the true extent of his new speeds are unknown. It is possible that he could run at even greater speeds if he was not limited by geological and atmospheric conditions. Quicksilver is also immune to the effects of friction, reduced oxygen up to a point where a human can no longer breathe, and impact upon his body while moving at super-speeds. He has traveled around the world by running on top of the ocean water and even ran all the way up Mount Everest without slowing down and went flying above cloud level as a result.
- Superhuman Strength: Pietro possesses superhuman strength in his lower body as part of his body's adaptations for running. With his upper body he can lift (press) approximately 1000 pounds while his legs can press approximately 1 ton under optimal conditions.
- Enhanced Durability: He is capable of resisting tremendous impact forces that could easily crush and kill a human without suffering any serious external or internal injuries.
Quick Intellect: Pietro is able to think at great speeds, contrary to his impulsiveness.
Skilled Combatant: He was briefly trained in martial arts and other forms of combat by Captain America making him an excellent fighter.
