Quicksilver is a character that. . .well what can I say, I don’t like him. He’s arrogant, whiny and makes horrible decisions. He’s been a hero, a villain, and a jerk. Sometimes he’s a valued member of the Avengers, X-Factor or the X-Men. Other times he’s acting on his own or with his father, Magneto. He’s the real villain behind House of M, so if you decide to run that event like I did, be sure to make his battle a tough one. He’s got a couple of d12s to throw around and he’s not afraid to do so.

You can read his complete history on the Marvel Wiki. Download the Word File or PDF here.

  1. I’m with you. I’ve never been a big fan (or even a small fan) of Quicksilver. Still, thanks for the example Speedster writeup. It is always good to have examples.

  2. Quick silver is one volatile character, a superhero who is unpredictable and faster than the Flash!!

  3. Faster than the Flash? Not by a looong shot.

    The various characters who have held the mantle of ‘Flash’ in the DC universe have been shown to run at nearly light speed, vibrate so fast as to phase through matter, travel through time and even perform feets such as speed-reading with photograhic memorization.

    In addition they can lend and borrow speed from others. They can also ‘think fast’, giving them some resistance to telepathy.

    While they have greatly increased Quicksilvers speed in recent years, more ‘realistic’ and less over-the-top Marvel universe has virtually no one who matches or even compares with the on the ground running speed of Barry Allen, Wally West and Bart Allen.

    Nice job on the Quicksilver profile, although I don’t recall Quicksilver being able to fly,

  4. Quicksilver can “fly”. He sucks at it, but its possible. He vibrates his feet, and can take off for short distances.

    I don’t think it’s an ability that gets used very often as he can also run up walls.

  5. Nice Datafile. Not too dissimilar from the one I used in our group. Spot on with the affiliations – had quite a discussion with our Watcher about Buddy d6, mind: “Yeah, he used to be in buddy situations a lot, but they never served him very well!”
    I love QS – mostly for the reasons others hate him! One of the most complex and 3d characters in the Marvel Universe. And connected: Avengers, Inhumans, Magneto, Xmen, etc, etc. Great fun to play in MHRPG, too.
