Quotes by Pietro Maximoff (Earth-616)

- I've warned you never to threaten my sister!
- Far too long have my sister and I suffered the indignities dealt us by homo sapiens... therefore, we have decided that our only cause is that of our own race... the race of homo superior!
- Enough! I will listen to no more of your Homo sapiens-sympathizing blasphemy! You have had your chance to join us -- and declined it! Therefore -- I can consider you nothing but our enemy!
- Larry Trask! Yes! If any Man might know where those Androids might have moved the Apparatus from this Place, it would be the Son of their Creator! And, help me he shall - or live to regret it!
- No sister of MINE may become involved with a - a - a - Robot!
- The Hulk is down and out!
- I'm not a true Inhuman -- I'm a mutant -- Different. They'll never fully accept me ...

- You may assume you know Magneto from your days as his students, but you don't know him at all. He will crush you if he believes you are standing in his way. Therefore, you are going to leave Genosha now. By force if necessary.
- I am faster than I was when I was last on the Avengers roster -- MUCH FASTER!

- As for Simon, Wanda's brought him back before -- she can do it again. It's like her secondary power.
- My ex-wife, Crystal, once told me I've spent my whole life running. An obvious and boring metaphor -- but she was right. I never settled in any one place long enough for it to become my home. Left as soon as things got the slightest bit messy. Running from a long list of things that I'm not proud of. Running away from my wife. From my daughter. Focusing on the bigger parts while ignoring my real responsibility. It was never my fault. Always mired in rationalizations. They pushed me. They started it -- I simply finished it. As long as I don't sink to his level, hey, I'm coming out ahead. It was just so easy. I'm his son -- Of course I have his temper. But then Wanda cast that damn spell--And I lost my excuse. Why did I really come here? I said I needed to know the truth. But that's not it. I wanted there to be some grand plot. Some strings I could point to and blame. Anything to keep up the lie. Anything to get my excuses back. But I've been given a second chance. An I'm done running. Every triumph, every failure, I own them all. And while the thought of it is terrifying -- it's also liberating.
- Oh, sister... you'll pay for that.
- I can't leave the city for a minute without something ridiculous happening... this time, some kind of force field covering the island. Hmmmm... no gaps in the surface at all...
- Emily - I've never been a person who looked to religion for guidance. In a world filled with so much strife, God's light has always felt distant and weak. And yet, now I pray. I pray for your future, healthy and strong. I pray that I haven't destroyed your beauty and grace through my selfish actions. Wanda told me I must leave, and for once, I must concede she is correct. I have been a fool and need time and clarity to try and overcome it. There's nothing I can write here that will take back the mistakes I made or undo the hurt I've caused you. If you can find it in your heart to forgive me, I will endeavor to make myself worthy of such kindness. Until then, you are in my thoughts and prayers. - Pietro
- I'm the fastest man on Earth. But... what if... that's not fast enough?
- What I wouldn't give for some crappy super villain speech right now to break this silence.
- Calm Down?! I've never been more furious in my life! All the time I've wasted here-- with you and your team of rejects! I could have been searching for her!
- You're a mutant, too. You can read minds enough to predict any attack your opponent will make. So you will be able to -- anticipate every move I make -- and do absolutely -- nothing about it -- because I -- am -- the -- fastest -- man -- on -- Earth.
- Look, O'Grady -- many of us came to the Avengers with baggage, myself included. Even Scott Lang -- your predecessor -- was a convicted criminal who literally stole his first costume. But just as Steve Rogers once vouched for me, he's vouching for you. That means we accept you. We put our reservations aside and trust that you'll be an asset to the team. You don't need to prowl around the shadows working up the courage to act like a man. You just need to understand that you're now an Avenger -- and that you belong here. Act like the man Rogers thinks you can be.
