Episode 10: Quicksilver
Me: *Reading X-Men #4 in a small park near Cloudsdale*
Scootaloo: *Approaches me* Hello Nick,
Me: Hello Scootaloo. How are you?
Scootaloo: Good, I guess. Can I ask anda something?
Scootaloo: My Friends Applebloom and Sweetie Belle both look up to superheroes, like Captain Marvel and labah-labah Man, but now I don’t have one. Can anda find me a hero who is fast and cool at the same time?
Me: Well, the first one that comes to mind is the mutant Quicksilver.
Me: Quicksilver, aka Pietro Maximoff, is the twin brother of Scarlet Witch. He has super speed and an impatient personality.
Scootaloo: He sounds pretty cool.
Me: Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch both joined the new Avengers team in Avengers #16*, alongside the veteran member Captain America and ex-villain Hawkeye.
Scootaloo: So he was a villain and reformed...that’s awesome!
Me: He and Scarlet Witch are also the twin children of Magneto, the leader of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants in Avengers #185.
Scootaloo: Gosh...it must be terrible to be related to a man like Magneto...
Me: Well, if anda consider Magneto’s past, it makes sense why he is a villain...either way, Quicksilver fell in Cinta with Crystal, the Inhuman sister of Medusa. In Fantastic Four #240*, Crystal and Quicksilver had a child named Luna.
Scootaloo: Does she raise the moon?
Me: No, but she has some light telepathic abilities.
Me: Anyways, did anda know that Quicksilver manipulated the events of M-Day?
Scootaloo: He did?
Me: Well, he had a plan to have Scarlet Witch warp reality to make everyone happy, but they rebelled in House of M #8*, which lead to the Decimation event, in which 90% of all Mutants Lost their powers, including Quicksilver.
Scootaloo: Did he get them back?
Me: Well, did after the events of Avengers vs X-Men, so he’s doing fine now. Is there anything else anda want to know?
Scootaloo: No, but thank anda for telling me this! I’m gonna dress up like Quicksilver and go have fun with me friends! Thank anda Nick!
