Thanks to Wolverine retaining his memories, along with the mysterious Layla Miller , many of Earth's heroes regain their memories and battle Magneto, who also remembers and realizes that Pietro is to blame for this mistake.

Magneto kills Quicksilver crushing his body with a robot Sentinel in a rage at this perceived 'abuse' of his dream, although the character is resurrected and the normal reality restored when the Scarlet Witch witnesses this, telling Magneto he cares more for mutants than his own children. The story continues in the limited series Son of M , with Quicksilver, desperate to regain his powers, exposing himself to the Terrigen Mist the source of the Inhumans' mutations and abilities and inserts Terrigen crystals into his body—all without permission from Black Bolt.

Courtesy of the Terrigen crystals, Quicksilver gains new "time jumping" powers and kidnaps his daughter Luna.

Quicksilver discovers the crystals can restore mutant abilities but have an extreme effect on non-Inhuman physiology, causing several deaths. When Crystal sees how he has mutated, she declares their marriage annulled according to Inhuman law. In the title X-Factor , the crystals are removed from Quicksilver's body by another mutant, leaving him powerless once again.

The Quick and the Dead , Quicksilver has a series of hallucinations and inexplicably regains his super speed. Escaping jail, Quicksilver rescues an innocent and rediscovers his desire to be a hero.

Quicksilver appears in the title The Mighty Avengers and is used as a pawn by Elder God Chthon , with the character's spirit trapped in the arcane tome called the Darkhold. The Avengers defeat Chthon, and Quicksilver's consciousness is "downloaded" into the body of Vision , before being restored to his own body.

Quicksilver also resumes wearing his original green costume. Quicksilver finally learns that the person he thought was his sister is actually Loki in disguise. Enraged, he and the rest of the team travel to the Isle of Silence to set a trap for the god of mischief. After imprisoning Loki in a device designed by Hank Pym, he begins torturing the god for information about Wanda's whereabouts. Loki offers no information about her and manages to contact Thor to beg for his help.

Thor arrives and attacks Quicksilver for the way he is treating Loki. He is able to outrun the thunder god's lightning but is eventually overpowered. He battles Amazon warrior women alongside Zeus [50] and helps a wounded Wolverine defeat the Huntsman , stabbing him through the chest with his own weapon. Quicksilver is later summoned by the Ghost using Amadeus Cho's technology, to defend Asgard against the Thunderbolts.

He single-handedly defeats Mister X who is in possession of the Spear of Odin. X isn't able to react quickly enough despite his abilities and Quicksilver viciously beats him down with a piece of debris.

Quicksilver is searching for his sister in Wundagore when Magneto and the Young Avengers go to find the Scarlet Witch. My father tried to kill me". Quicksilver joins the teaching staff of Avengers Academy to teach young students how to become heroes.

He does so in order to distance himself from the legacy of his father Magneto. She blackmails him into giving her "private lessons" on everything he learned during his time with the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. After arriving at what they thought was an abandoned training camp, they found it still in use and quickly captured the criminals they found there. Quicksilver returned to the mansion and encountered Tigra, who was upset because some of the students assaulted the Hood on her behalf.

During a heated exchange Quicksilver managed to convince her that kicking them out of the Academy for trying to help would only turn them against becoming heroes. In the miniseries "Magneto: Not a Hero", Joseph is resurrected under unknown circumstances and forms a new Brotherhood of Mutants with Astra and mutated deformed versions of Blob , Mastermind , Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch , and Toad. Quicksilver has joined the privately owned superhero team X-Factor.

Wanda and other heroes and villains experienced a moral inversion during a clash with the Red Onslaught. Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch later take a trip to Counter-Earth. He revealed to them that they are actually the long thought deceased children of Django and Marya Maximoff, Anna and Mateo. He also told them the truth where they were not mutants at all, but they had been experimented on by the High Evolutionary. After escaping from the High Evolutionary's experimentations, Pietro and Wanda located the Avengers Unity Division who had traveled to the Counter-Earth looking for the twins and helped the inhabitants of Lowtown a refuge for the High Evolutionary's rejects from their creator's assault.

When the second superhero Civil War began, Pietro came to ask Wanda for help, but Wanda refused, because she and Pietro disagreed on which side was right - Pietro not liking the idea of profiling people based on what they might do and Wanda feeling that thinking about the future would have prevented many of their more dangerous mistakes in the past - past precedent made Wanda feel that introducing her powers to a conflict of this nature could be more dangerous than the existing situation, and she resented Pietro still trying to tell her what to do as though she was a child, bluntly informing him that his refusal to learn from his mistakes marked him as a sociopath.

During the Secret Empire storyline, Quicksilver appears as a member of the Underground which is a resistance movement against Hydra ever since they took over the United States. Quicksilver was originally presented as a mutant capable of moving and thinking at superhuman speeds. Originally capable of running at the speed of sound , exposure to the High Evolutionary 's Isotope E made it possible for the character to run at supersonic speeds of up to Mach 10 and resist the effects of friction , reduced oxygen , and kinetic impact while moving at super-speeds.

Also, he has a fast metabolism and can heal more rapidly than the average human. The character's speed allows him to perform such feats as creating cyclone -strength winds and running up walls or across bodies of water. Pietro's mind can perceive information with a photographic memory short term, becoming faster than the speed of thought , because he can shift his thoughts at a speed faster than normal thought. As he once explained, "Have you ever had a day where you are at the ATM and you are in a hurry because you're running late but the person in front of you doesn't know how to use the ATM and they're taking forever?

Now imagine what it must be like to spend every day surrounded by people who don't know how to use the ATM. Quicksilver loses his powers of speed when his sister removes most of his mutant powers, but gains new powers courtesy of the Inhumans' Terrigen Mist. The mist gives Quicksilver the ability to displace himself out of mainstream time and space and "jump" into the future.

The character can summon several time-displaced duplicates of himself and appear to teleport by "jumping" into the future and then returning to the present at a new location.

By voluntarily embedding fragments of the Terrigen Crystals into his own body, the character could empower former mutants with extreme versions of their superhuman abilities.
