Mercenary / Brotherhood
Powers: Pietro's body is adapted towards the rigors of high-speed running. His cardiovascular and respiratory systems are many times more efficient than those of a normal human being. He metabolizes an estimated 95% of the caloric energy content of foodstuffs (normal humans use about 25%). The chemical processes of Quicksilver's musculature are so highly enhanced that his body does not generate fatigue poisons, the normal by-products of locomotion, which force the body to rest. Rather, his body constantly expels waste products during his accelerated respiration through exhalation. His joints are smoother and lubricated more efficiently than those of a normal human being. His tendons have the tensile strength of spring steel. His bones contain unknown materials significantly more durable than calcium to withstand the dynamic shocks of his feet touching the ground at speeds a human could never achieve or withstand. Quicksilver's practical reaction time is several times faster than a normal human's and the speed at which his brain processes information is heightened to a level commensurate with his bodily speed, enabling him to perceive his surroundings while traveling at high velocities. Quicksilver's lachrymose is more viscous than normal, thus preventing rapid evaporation and replenishment of surface fluids on his eyeballs under the influence of high wind velocity to occlude his vision. Quicksilver possesses superhuman strength in his lower body as part of his body's adaptations for running. Quicksilver's physiology grants him greater stamina when compared to an ordinary human, allowing him to operate at peak capacity for at least several hours before he begins to grow tired.
Extra Information: He is still learning about other things he’s capable of due to his speed. He has thrown himself into his roles as leader in the brotherhood so much that he has not trained himself or experimented with his powers as much as he probably should.He has learned some bits and pieces of martial arts - moves that work well with his own flow and speed. Pietro can be his own worst enemy, because he gets so caught up in things that he’ll forget to eat or he’ll overthink situations that are simple. He sometimes has trouble with anxiety because of this. He doesn’t know where he fits in this world anymore, especially since his sister has not been on his side of the fence and now his father is pulling him toward Xavier’s. The injuries Quicksilver has suffered have usually come from his own mishaps while speeding - people forget that speedsters can trip and fall as well as anyone else in the world - they just happen to be going 60-80 mph when they do it. So he’s had several broken bones and concussions over his life already.
Background: Pietro prefers a more activist stand than terrorist stand when it comes to his Brotherhood activities and often finds himself at odds with others in the organization because of this. He never found a true home available and so he tends to make homes available for others. That’s why his followers are loyal to him. This post has been edited by Pietro Maximoff: Jan 14 2018, 02:57 PM
