Little is detailed about Quicksilver’s life before the zombie plague arrived on Earth-2149, however it can be presumed that it followed much the same path as Quicksilver of Earth-616.

Presumably, Quicksilver receives a call from Nick Fury to join the resistance aboard the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, and leaves to join them.

With the extremely varied bunch all assembled on the Helicarrier, Nick explains how serious he believes the situation to be; that it is the end of the world. He also explains that whatever the histories of those assembled, they are all on the same side.

Quicksilver is part of the group sent back to Earth to battle the zombies.[1] When he witnesses what appears to be Black Cat advancing on an unzombified Scarlet Witch, he rushes to save her and picks her up; as he flees the battle, "Scarlet Witch" reveals herself as the zombie Mystique, and promptly bites Pietro on the neck. After being infected, he used his speed to travel around the world infecting other countries, and is apparently a major reason why the infection could not be contained before it became a global threat.[2]

Quicksilver is later seen as part of the zombie masses.[3] After the zombies who consumed Galactus left the Earth, Quicksilver joined the zombie Kingpin to please his hunger.

Quicksilver was later killed by Machine Man who was trying to escape the Fisk after he destroyed the cloning vats the zombies were using for food.[4]


  • Speed Physiology: Quicksilver'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.
    • Superhuman Speed: Quicksilver was originally capable of running far past the speed of sound (770 miles per hour).
    • Isotope E Exposure: This substance increased Quicksilver's speed to supersonic levels. He was able to run across the Atlantic Ocean during this augmentation.

Strength level

  • Quicksilver possesses superhuman strength primarily in his lower body as part of his body's adaptations for running. With his upper body he can lift (press) approximately 1000 lbs. He can leg press approximately one ton under optimal conditions.
