Quicksilver fast but not even close to as fast as someone like the flash I think that marvel should Up his speed what do u think
Quicksilver should be faster!!!
It wouldn't exactly make him better. But currently, Quicksilver can dodge lightning, outrun radio waves (possibly a writers error, but maybe it wasn't), and cover half the globe in 92 seconds. He also ran from Tibet to Indonesia and back in what appeared to be about a second. Maybe ten seconds tops.
My point is that Quicksilver is as fast as he needs to be right now. Making him faster would be kind of silly. Also, giving him a max speed number seems kind of silly too, unless a Marvel writer really just wants to have Quicksilver outrun the Flash.
That's always been my main complaint with hero speedsters. the faster you make them the more difficult it is to give them a villain who can match them. His original villain counterpart Speed Demon only has a max of 175m.p.h. Not really a fair fight, What fun is it when he can just put the bad guy in prison before they can even blink?
He was fast enough to steal from PF Emma so I think he does pretty well for himself.
DAMN PF emma is slow
quickysliver can run at mach 4. WHEN DO YOU NEED TO GO FASTER?
RL navy railgun can go MACH 7
@Eet Mor Puppee:
wasn't that in Ultimates?
I like how he is written now. He is powerful but not to the ridiculous proportions tat allows him to time travel or blend together universes or vibrate through objects or that infinity punch or whatever it is called. I like the speed to allow him to strike quickly but not be a high end devastating force.
Nope, we wouldn't want him to be over-powered. Faster than the speed of light is just too powerful for a Marvel hero. Mach 5 is reasonable. He should stay as he is.
Thor, Doctor Doom, Silver Surfer, Black Bolt, Quasar, Gladiator...
Quicksilver being faster than light is good for me. But not Flash levels of speed because that's just ridiculous imo.
Thor is one of the few and he IS a god. Silver Surfer is cosmic. Doom is a villain. Black Bolt lives on the moon and mostly deals with Earth issues if it's cosmic and thus a threat to him. Quasar and Gladiator are mos popular for being unpopular. Those are all still few characters.
Faster than light leaves you too fast for you opponent to even see you. At least with Pietro his villains can somewhat react. Faster than the speed of light is extremely fucking fast. Pietro is still the fastest man on Earth yet has faced many opponents more powerful. Faster than the speed of light would be over kill.
