What happened to Quicksilver in the MCU

Is Quicksilver the same in the X-Men films as it is in Avengers: Age of Ultron?

As discussed here and here, the X-Men and Marvel Cinematic universes are completely separate, and both are completely separate from any comic book continuities (aside from specific comic book ties created for the films).

This means that no cinematic universe is necessarily indebted to Quicksilver's comical past as Magneto's son or Scarlet Witch's brother.

As pointed out in the first linked post, Fox owns pretty much all of the movie rights to all "mutants," but an agreement exists that allows Marvel to use them provided their traditional origins are not referred to, and Fox can in none point to the Avengers way.

From an interview with Kevin Feige

SHH: What about the future of "The Avengers"? I don't know if you want to bring in new characters or just keep the core team. Characters like the Scarlet Witch and Mercury, are they part of Fox's deal or are they characters you could use?

Feige: We have them both. There's a special arrangement with these two characters that would allow us to use them with "Avengers" but not discuss or reference their mutated or magneto-related lineage.You can use them as mutants and as relatives of Magneto, but they have nothing to do with "The Avengers".


Brilliant. Thanks for the links. I will check it out.


Huhm, that version of Quicksilver was pretty prominent in that cartoon, and the target audience (mine) is now in their 20s. I'm not sure if 90% are correct ...;)
