Quicksilver is one of my favorite mutants. He might even be one of my favorite characters in all of comics. The character is endlessly entertaining and has such an interesting and compelling backstory and point of view. Pietro Maximoff, the son of Magneto, is arguably the heir apparent to the Marvel Universe and yet he can’t seem to get out of his own way. The character’s entitled attitude and cocky brashness serve as a constantly evolving story engine for all of the X-men comics. That alone would be enough to keep me interested, but the fact that the character vacillates between good and evil. Predictable and chaotic. Or even down right psychopathic makes him one of my favorite X-people.
Will any of that be in the new X-men movie that features Quicksilver? Probably not. But I can hope.
In a new official still for X-men Days of Future Past Quicksilver can be seen with Wolverine, Magneto, and Professor X.
But here’s the bad news he looks like an extra off that Biggie music video where he’s supposed to be in space. You know the one I’m talking about. The one where everyone is wearing ridiculously shiny clothes for no other reason than… well, it’s space.
