    sure he has more appearences and exposers but that doesn't make him popular. YOU like him and so are a few more pepole but he is a C list charecter much like Black Knight (that i like) but can't carry a series of his own and that's a FACT his only series lasted only 13 issues and was realy bad. son of M was a limited series that didn't sell much. his stints on the avengers and other places are almost always short and he mostlly used as a cyfer or to richochet from other better charecters like magneto and wanda.


Having a number of appearances and exposes suggest that the readers want to read about him. If a character isn't popular, he isn't going to be making numerous appearances. The reason people make Quicksilver action figures is because they think it will sell, and the reason they don't make Spitfire ones is because they don't think those would sell.

I have said nothing about whether I like or dislike the character. He seems to be capable of having stories told about him, something Spitfire cannot apparently do based on past history. I think any character has the potential to be more popular, so since that's universal I don't think it applies anywhere.

It's not a fact that the 90s Quicksilver series was bad, it's an opinion of yours. Never read it so I can't opine.

Son of M sold very highly given what it was. It was made by David Hine and Roy Martinez, neither of which are high sellers. I would guess that this was the highest selling series by either at Marvel as an average. The series debuted with sells of 62K (ranked 29 for that month) and finished with sells 47K (ranked 44th). I'd say that was certainly a success given the creators and character of Quicksilver involved. While it was a spinoff of the House of M event, so were many of less popular titles.

While I'm sure part of the appeal of Quicksilver is his family connections in Wanda and Magneto, but how many Spitfire stories can you really name without Union Jack, Baron Blood, or vampires?

I'm sorry I brought out all those feelings of anger towards Quicksilver in you.
