Basically, speedsters are jerks because the entire rest of the world is too slow.
At one point he learned to play the piano at superspeed. That was kind of what I was thinking of.
Anyway it's not all Speedsters it's just Pietro and maybe Speed have the problem of not being able to turn their powers off. Northstar seems to be able to.
But yeah. Marvel's speedsters are mostly jerks.
As for Quicksilver learning stuff at superspeed, yeah, he probably should have a bizarre range of knowledge. That might be a fun way to write him, actually, as this weird trivia buff because of how many books he's read at superspeed. Something else he did in the old X-Factor.
Maybe he's like the Flash: He can learn at superspeed, but it fades away after time.
I would like to see Quicksilver leave the Academy in the aftermath of Avengers vs X-men, because it would be interesting to have reveal to the world that it was Magneto's children that caused M-day.
Also, Herc's still got his sword and shield. Yay! That ongoing of his got canceled entirely too soon.
I'm looking forward to that issue, as always.
I don't really like Kyle, tbh. I just find him not very interesting... but it just takes one good story to change my mind. Not that I mind same-sex relationships but this one (and Wiccan/Hulking) is just grating to me... I like Rictor/Shatterstar in X-Factor though, and Rainbow Slash (I love that name lol)...
Why would they, even the X-Men and X-Factor didn't want to? Quicksilver's kind of grating but I love him with Finesse so I don't want him to leave.Originally Posted by CMBMOOL
If anything makes him leave it should probably be the whole starting-a-war-and-lying-about-it thing. That kind of got forgotten.
Wow, that is excelent. Three pages that were more thought provoking and that left me more excited than anything I've seen from this "event". Heroes actually behaving like heroes, able to set their differences aside and work together in the face of a Crisis. What an unheard of concept, nowadays. Plus, Gage NEEDS to add Hercules permnently to the staff. The Lion of Olympus is such a great character to be left in limbo or at the hand of lesser writers. Kudos, Mr. Gage. Marvel really should wise up and put you in charge of the whole Avengers franchise. I, for one, would be a happy camper.
