Quicksilver played by Evan Peters in X-Men Apocalypse is the best thing that we’ve seen on the television so far. The way he just wraps a smile on our face with his funny behavior and of course how can we not talk about the Quicksilver Leather Jacket. We are sure of the fact that you’ve had your eyes on that jacket since you saw Evan Peters wearing it. The speed of Quicksilver and the way he interacts with the things around him in an intelligent way makes us wonder what an incredible mutant he is.
“The name is Quicksilver and if you and your friends don’t leave this place at once, my father won’t be the only person I killed today.” -Quicksilver
If you want to know more about this character then stick with us a little longer because today we are going to present some shocking facts about Quicksilver to you.
“Look, when you live as fast as I do, there ain’t enough things to occupy my time. I gotta entertain myself!” -Evan Peters in X-Men-Apocalypse
HIS POWERS MIGHT BE BASED ON TIME MANIPULATION
In this ongoing series of 1997, Quicksilver came across a version of himself that belonged to the future of some other timeline. That version was none other than Nestor and according to Nestor, the superhuman speed of Quicksilver was nothing but time manipulation. You can also guess this from the fact that Quicksilver was later given manipulation abilities when he was exposed to Terrigen Mists.
THINGS HE CAN DO A LOT MORE THAN RUNNING FAST
As mentioned earlier, Quicksilver has the ability to run fast and with the blink of an eye, you won’t even know how he went from one place to another. But this isn’t it and Quicksilver can even interact with the things in his surrounding while moving.
It’s a bit philosophical here that when you are running fast, you cannot function your brain to focus on the things in your surroundings. But guess what? Quicksilver can even hit someone while he is running and he can easily pick things up too. So, technically running fast is not his only ability.
JUST A TEACHER BEFORE THE REAL TIME HERO
The Quicksilver X Men jacket was introduced much later and before he was just a teacher for a school called the Avengers Academy where the young superpowered people were taken and trained to control their powers and fight off the dangers they will face once they grow up.
HE HAS OTHER POWERS TOO
Other than running really fast, Quicksilver can;
- Walk on the walls
- He is more of a stop motion Spiderman
- He has some great powers of defense
- He can interact with the things around him while moving super-fast
Well, seems like the X Men Quicksilver Jacket was not the only thing to drool over. In fact the whole character of Quicksilver is interesting and let’s face it, after watching X-Men Apocalypse, we all wanted the superpowers Quicksilver possessed.
“I am freaking Quicksilver!! And you can’t eat my freaking dust!” -Evan Peters, Quicksilver
