Cartoons Comics & Toons


Quicksilver (Pietro Maximoff) is a comic book supervillain in the Marvel Comics universe. He was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and first appeared in X-Men #4 (1964).
Quicksilver possesses the superhuman ability to run, think, and react at great speed; he has often claimed that the rest of the world seems to move, and think, in slow motion, which is what has led to his impatient, arrogant temper. He is able to run up vertical surfaces and across water, and can even fly for short distances by moving quickly to form a miniature tornado. Quicksilver is often considered Marvel's counterpart to DC Comics' The Flash. Quicksilver had difficulty breaking the sound barrier; however, during his short-lived series his speed increased drastically due to his exposure to Isotope E.
Quality Comics published a super-speedster named Quicksilver in National Comics, during the Golden Age of comic books; when he was revived by DC Comics in the pages of The Flash, he was renamed Max Mercury to avoid trademark confusion with Marvel's long-established character.
