Exactly how fast is he these days?
"I don't think they have given him a top speed since they he has regained his powers. "
Dagnabbit. I am trying to remember a recent issue. I want to say it was Assault on New Olympus. He said something along the lines of it taking him 92 seconds to run from somewhere. Blast!
Apparently his over Radio Waves, which is faster than light but many people think that was a mistake by the editor, or the writer, dunno. Maybe he is maybe he isn't.a feat used mainly in Thor battles. (long story)
I would actually like for that to be clarified to be honest. It did seem odd.
Seeing has I think he ran from Tibet to Indonesia in 92 seconds. His calculated speed would be around Mach 300 or 228,350 mph which is way faster then what Northstar can do without causing serious injury to himself. So from this feat alone he is faster then what most people think he is around mach 5, but considering this could be PIS it is moot point. Since most writers wouldn't calculate the speed it would take to get from point A to point B they just want to show he is fast.
@Chaos Burn: Yeah which is no where near mach 5, so once again the writes don't put much thought in to how fast Quicksilver actually goes. I guess that don't care about the character enough to show his actual speed or they throw around numbers thinking the reader won't notice.
Hypersonic and faster than light
hypersonic speeds, such as going 347 miles in 3.7 seconds, which is 98 times the speed of sound. the typical lighting bolt move about 3700 miles per second. That's 17, 499 times the speed of sound. Quicksilver has run from the Himalayas to Indonesia and back in just the few seconds, In the time USA Agent has breif talk with Wasp, and he also travel half the globe (planet) in just 92 seconds.
