The Quick and the Dead: Pietro redeemed.

I loved this issue! PAD has done a masterful job of bringing Pietro out of the depth he descended to in Son of M.

I haven't been able to get to the comics shop because I have two finals tomorrow, but I saw the scans on scans_daily.

"I'm freaking Quicksilver, and you can eat my freaking dust!!"

AWESOME! I mean bounce up and down in your seat Awesome.

Big thumbs up to PAD.

As to why he has his powers back, I don't think it's from the terrigen crystals because they are his speed powers, not time ones. Layla's hints also discount Wanda's involvement. So either he never lost them, or reality is quietly reasserting itself.

I mean think about it, we have a universe in which Eternity is a sentient being. Don't you think it might have taken issue with a mutant reworking it just to "get back at Daddy"?

Thank God for PAD!

He brought Pietro back. David was hinting towards this for a while but I still was very scared of Quicksilver being the nemesis of Layla. I thought that if came down to it, the one to "go" would be Pietro.

Now we'll see what they do. Probably this one-shot was a "test" to see how much interest exists on the caracther (maybe with a PAD series for Pietro?)

Lets hope it sells well enough (sadly i cant help, i would have to buy it as a back-issue)

So why is Quicksilver this fast? He appears to be moving much faster than 220 mph (his top speed as given in Son of M) is this a power boost or just inconsistent writing? I ask this because I've seen him do things that would require much greater speed, and was surprised when they threw out 220 as his top speed at the time.

Well, when Quicksilver was under the influence of Isotope E (Quicksilver series), his speed topped out at over Mach 5. I guess we are to assume that that has stuck with him, or he has achieved his full (natural) potential.

PAD SAID IN A MARVEL ARTICLE THAT  
   David says that while all the title's characters appear in the very first issue, they won't necessarily all be in the same place. However, the writer promises that he plans to stream a plot together that eventually reunites the entire team. Similarly, the move to New York also allows for more guest appearances in the book, whether in the form of brief cameos or as potential clientele. In fact, David teases that longtime fans should prepare themselves for the possible reappearance of a former X-Factor cast member: the silver-haired speedsterQuicksilver.

"I think it's safe to say that they will cross paths at some point."
