superhuman speed

The Flash

When it comes to speedy superheroes, Quicksilver I, Quicksilver II, or Dash from the Incredibles may be the first to come to mind nowadays. But with his own television show premiering in 2014 and a movie planned for 2018, The Flash is back to remind you that he’s the original speedster.

Quicksilver in Avengers

In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) is Pietro Maximoff, the fleet-footed twin brother of Scarlet Witch who can move at superhuman speeds. He’s not to be confused with the Evan Peters Quicksilver, who’s, like, totally different.



In X-Men: Days of Future Past, speed is the name of the game for Quicksilver (Evan Peters). With the ability to move faster than sound, he’s spent a good part of his teen years as a petty thief. That is until he’s called to a greater cause – one to help the X-Men.
