Just how fast is the X-Men character Quicksilver, also known as Peter Maximoff( and son of Magneto )? This “wouldve been” a popular topic of debate at the comic book bar–if a comic book saloon existed. It such a saloon does exist, I have to go.
We can take a crack at answering this question, beginning with the a scene from the 2016 movie X-Men: Apocalypse. In it, Quicksilver arrives at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters( the X-Men manor ). Right as he gets there, he realise it’s in the process of blowing up. That entails it’s up to Peter to save everyone. He represents multiple trip-ups in and out of the mansion to fetch the students out to security. And this is where I will approximate his speed.
Preemptive note. Yes, I know it’s just a movie. Yes, I know it’s not real. I don’t care. This is how I show my appreciation of superhero movies, by pulling out the physics moves. That’s just what I do.
Suppose I run across the yard, stroke a tree and then come back to where I started. If I know the time this takes and the full amounts of the interval, I can calculate the average speed as 😛 TAGEND
