You may know Peter Maximoff for his superspeed but that is not all. Quicksilver’s body is capable of a lot more than that. He may not be as fast as the Flash, but he is so fast that the world seems too slow. MCU had to get rid of Quicksilver played by Aaron Talyor Johnson too soon. The fans would have loved to see him in the battle against Thanos. Even the X-Men version of the character did not give us many details about him other than his speed. Check this list out for the most bizarre details about Quicksilver’s body.
1. His Body Heals Faster
Quicksilver is known for his speed, but his healing abilities are just as fast as he is. His healing ability is not like Wolverine’s that keeps him alive no matter how severe the wound is. But he does manage to heal fast after an injury and be right back on the task.
2. His Body is Able to Adapt to the Conditions of his Speed
Quicksilver has tons of cool abilities but his body’s ability to adapt to the conditions that are resulted from his high speed. To ensure that he remains safe running at the speed that he does, his body adapts too. It is much like our bodies adapting to a stimulus by sweating, shivering, and other responses.
3. Short-Term Photographic Memory
Quicksilver’s brain allows him to have a photographic memory. While it is only short-term and also underused. This ability is not something a hero would generally rely on and it is not flashy like most superpowers. But photographic memory can be used in a number of ways especially in battle, rescue missions, and reconnaissance.
4. He can Displace Time and Jump into the Future
The process behind this power is not simple, but Quicksilver‘s body can absorb Inhumans’ Terrigan Mist crystals. This helps him to displace from time and jump to the future. Using the mist is fatal for the mutants though many of them used it after everyone was robbed off of their powers by Wanda.
5. His Body can Withstand Intense Pressure and Friction
Superspeed has its drawbacks like running too fast creates friction and also running faster than sound generates pressure. Both of these can cause damage to the human body running at the speed Peter does. It is lucky that his body is capable to withstand both pressure and friction.
6. His Body can Transfer Vibrations to Solid Materials
When running, Quicksilver’s body generates Vibrations. He can transfer these vibrations into solid materials. This ability gives the strength to topple buildings and match his capabilities with superpowered heroes. If the skill was explored more by MCU, Quicksilver could be one of the strongest Avengers.
7. He Has Enhanced Breathing Abilities
To run at the speed that Quicksilver runs, one must be capable of breathing better than regular humans. Running at high speed exposes him to high pressure and without enhanced breathing capabilities he would not be able to exhale completely and lose consciousness.
