    my so called opinion abour quicksilver is based on 30 years of reading comics , some of them with him in it. he was NEVER popular not with the readers (his only series was canceled so fast even he couldn't remember it ever existed) good writers tries to make him interesting but never realy did. even his powers are not impressive enough (not fast as a speedster should, always get his a$$ kicked first, going from good to bad on a weam, arrogant without anything to back it up) never cling to a costume for too long. well you can see my point. now spitfire has a lot of untapped potencial that can benefit the Avengers that has only on powered female (spider woman) and bendis can do anything with her without destroying continunity as he use to do.


It's an opinion on whether you think the character of Quicksilver is a good or bad one, as is whether or not you like the character. But it's not an opinion on which character is more popular between Quicksilver and Spitfire. There is an objective truth out there that could be proven, while the quality of a character really can not.

Quicksilver is clearly more popular than Spitfire. At the very least he's appeared in many more books and titles than she has, appearing in countless Avengers and X-Men titles and stories. He's also had at least two titles devoted to him with the Quicksilver series in the 90s and the Son of M series.

Spitfire has only had a few guest appearances since her introduction, but has appeared as a regular character in the 70s Invaders series and recent Captain Britain series. And even though the character has been around since the mid 70s, she's never headlined a title with the exception of a recent one-shot.

I can buy a Quicksilver action figure, watch him in cartoon shows, and even see him in video games. Can't say the same for Spitfire who's only merchandise seems to be a heroclix figure.

And I understand that Quicksilver isn't your favorite character, but again he is clearly more popular than Spitfire.
