Ok, back to ignore with you. Quicksilver is much more powerful than The Flash.

When he was a shield for Hawkeye in Age of Ultron. :banana:

Flash would never have been hit by something as slow moving as bullets!

While not a Quicksilver story, Thing #3 is an amazing story that he is an integral part of. My favorite Byrn story of that era, even if he later refuted it.

Are you talking only Flash #123 story or is traveling thru time something Flash does a lot? As I've stated, never really read the title except for Showcase #4 and Flash #123.

Thanks. I'll look that title up. Why did Byrn refute it?

It will explain itself. It is one of only two times in fifty years a writer succeeded in landing a knockdown gut punch.

Flash is so fast he can run around the world and punch himself in the back of the head.

Quicksilver was part of the West Coast Avengers when they fought Immortus and a version of the Legion of the Unliving.  Seemingly, Quicksilver didnt have any dead characters of his own to fight, so Byrne made up Oort, the Living Comet, a future foe we havent met yet.

That story, in Avengers Wast Coast #61, was written by Roy and Dann Thomas.  Byrne had fallen out with Tom DeFalco and quit after AWC #57.

Peter David nailed the character in a couple of pages of X-Factor 87 better than everyone else in the history of writing the character.  Pick up X-Factor 87 and the character will make more sense.

I hated that issue and dislike David's writing in general. The only thing of his I ever read that I liked was the Sachs & Violens series he did with George Perez.

I think Quicksilver is a far better character than The Flash.

Which one? Never mind, it's untrue regardless.

Full disclosure - I’ve never read The Flash.

Obviously.

Byrne didn't refute it, later writers did.

Okay, thanks. I thought I read he claimed the whole thing was a joke.

That was the hack Peter David who wrote that. :sick:

I'm going with Buzzeta. X-Factor 87 is a classic and I really enjoyed Peter David's run on Hulk.

The best way I can say it is I had a buddy who hated the Hulk as a character, but liked Peter David's run on the book.

Pure garbage.

I'm a fan of Peter David, the writer. Not so much Peter David the man.
