X-Factor: The Quick and the Dead (2008)
Pietro fell on hard times in the mid ’00s; his sister went mad, he lost his mutant powers, and his plan to lead a revolution blew up in his face. That’ll happen if you try to make a mutant revolution happen using powerful and unstable crystals, you know. This one-shot by Peter David and Pablo Raimondi features Quicksilver at his lowest, as he struggles with through an identity crisis in a cramped prison cell. Much like X-Factor #87, this done-in-one story gets to the heart of the character and builds him back up again, culminating in Pietro spouting off what should be his battle cry: “I’m freaking Quicksilver!!! And you can eat my freaking dust!”
