Lyssa's Log: Pietro Maximoff! Maybe you know him by a different name, Quicksilver? Pietro and his twin sister, Wanda were raised by Django and Marya Maximoff, a gypsy couple. As adolescents Pietro and his sister Wanda discovered that they had peculiar talents. When Django began to steal food to feed his starving family, enraged villagers attacked the gypsy camp. Using his phenomenal speed, Pietro fled from the camp with his sister. Over the next few years, Wanda and Pietro wandered central Europe, living off the land. One day, Wanda accidentally caused a house to burst into flames with her uncontrollable hex powers and the pair was chased by superstitious townspeople. Despite Pietro's attempt to defend her, the twins were soon overpowered and were rescued by Magneto. That's the Marvel comic version of it. However if you've seen Age Of Ultron, they explain their story a bit different. Pietro Maximoff was a genetically enhanced Sokovian citizen who was capable of moving and thinking at superhuman speeds. He was the older twin brother of Wanda Maximoff. Ultron, knowing that the Twins hated Stark, met with them in a Sokovian monastery where Pietro explained how their family was killed by Tony Stark's bombs. Ultron offered them a position by his side and they accepted.That is Pietro Maximoff, a.k.a Quicksilver. My S post will be about Wanda, who later earns the title "Scarlet Witch". Comment below about which Marvel character is your favorite and why. Don't forget to mention which movie they were in. Peace Out!
