Not much is known about Quicksilver's history on Earth-TRN566, other than that he was part of Magneto's Brotherhood of Mutants along with his sister Scarlet Witch.[1] Quicksilver and the Brotherhood later joined forces with the X-Men to stop Apocalypse.[2]

  • Adventures of the X-Men was a series that continued where X-Men Adventures Vol 3 left off, but with all-new stories.
  • Although X-Men Adventures was an adaptation of the X-Men: The Animated Series, the book often took liberties from what the TV show was doing. So while many Earth-TRN566 characters such as Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Wolverine share history similarities with their Earth-92131 doppelgangers, Earth-TRN566's Quicksilver is one of the many characters whose Earth-92131 history is completely ignored due to the divergences:
    • In the episode "Repo Man", when Jean Grey is using Cerebro to find Professor Xavier, she sees glimpses of other mutants, including Quicksilver, who is shown wearing his blue costume. When X-Men Adventures Vol 2 #5 adapted the episode, the mutant cameos were omitted.
    • By the time of X-Men Adventures Vol 3 only the Season 3 storyarcs "Out of the Past"[3][4], "The Phoenix Saga",[5][6][7][8][9] "Savage Land, Savage Heart",[10][11] and "The Dark Phoenix Saga."[12][13][14][15] were adapted. This meant the Season 3 episode "Cold Comfort", in which Quicksilver first fully appeared (as a part of the government team X-Factor (Earth-92131), and wearing his blue costume as established) was not adapted, and it and any further appearances of Quicksilver on the Animated Series was non-canonical to Earth-TRN566.
    • Once X-Men Adventures Vol 3 ended and Adventures of the X-Men began, the book was free to ignore whatever the cartoon was doing, and so once Quicksilver appeared in Adventures of the X-Men, he was wearing the green costume that his Earth-616 counterpart wore in the 1960's as opposed to the blue costume he'd been wearing from the 70's to the 90's), and being part of Magneto's Brotherhood instead of X-Factor.
