He runs around the world, from Berlin, to Portugal, to the middle of the atlantic, chasing a beacon, but what's interesting is that he looks up within a Picosecond. most likely an outlier, but still interesting.

Why does he have the “Fast Forward” symbol on his chest?

@battle123axe: Marvel comics (minus a few books) have pretty much been dead to me since 2014. Is he still called Quicksilver? The FF symbol doesn’t really fit.

Was it ever explained why he can run significantly faster than he used to or have writers not cared to give an explanation?

Well, QS had 2 power upgrades making him faster in general, but outside of that overall your question was explained way back in Quicksilver's solo series, you see Quicksilver's powers get stronger with time, basically he has yet to reach to his full potential which was explained back then, hence why he becomes faster and faster with time, that's the in-comic explanation generally.

Not only that Saladin Ahmed, the guy who wrote Black Bolt's solo and who is gonna write new QS solo, said that Pietro is arguablly the Marvel's Fastest Character.

https://www.cbr.com/quicksilver-no-surrender-announce-exclusive/

" Plus he’s the very best at what he does. He’s not one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel Universe, but he’s the fastest. At least one can make that argument. "

So overall we can see that QS has definitely gotten better over years.

On-topic: Cool feat, but I don't see how it is an outlier really, given the context and the lore surrounding Quicksilver's powers, he just got faster over years quite simple really, - from outrunning radiowaves to blackholes and now picosecond feats, as well as possible new FTL feats in his solo, but generally that's how his power works, he just gets faster over time (he has also minor magnetic powers as well, just saying).

He has no feats of doing so really, but he does have decent striking power, for example - H.E. was no-selling Rogue's punches, who at that time had all of Wonder Man's power (the guy while not as powerful as Thor obviously but can harm Thor-level beings, just saying), and yet QS's punches completely body him.

Pre-Upgrade QS also did this to Iron Man.

It's only a matter of time before Quicksilver starts using IMP's.

He gets faster over time, so it most likely a power upgrade instead of outlier

Quicksilver is gradually catching up to Flash in terms of power level.

Yep, that's how it is explained really, the guy gets constantly told that he has great potential, and can be way faster than he is now, it was also hinted that his speed upgrade is possible because of certain control over magnetism (he got minor magnetic powers via post-Isotope E upgrade) which augments speed, as his future self (going by the name - Nestor) was way faster than our QS because of that type of certain factor.

Marvel Handbook also classifies his speed as 7 after his 2nd (post-HoM) power boost, and as we know 7 means Faster than Light.

And nowdays, he also leaves an energy/lightning trace behind him when he runs....like Flashes.

wasn't this when Wanda basically turned off all his mental "safeties" that our bodies have to stop us hurting ourselves?

Quicksilver should get a feat where he runs across the universe in a picosecond.

As long as I don't see anyone start saying he's Flash level, Ill be happy with this feat for QS, he has been in top five of Marvel Characters for a while now so I am surprised I have only just now seen this feat. Does he have any more recent FTL feats?

I'm not sure how "natural" this speed feat is. Sure, Synapse used her power to break away his mental barriers that would keep him from going fast enough to hurt himself, but the issue also states Wanda uses her powers to "shatter probabilities" which probably means she either

A: held his body together past what it can naturally handle

Or B: just added an additional reality warp speed boost

@jay_z94: technically he can, he can move a trillion times faster than light. Based on his picosecond feat.

so if light can move 186,282 miles in a second. And a pico second is a trillion times shorter than a normal second. Then he can move a trillion time faster than light or 1.86282 x 10^17 . Which is still fast as shit.

barry Allen has attosecond feats, (marvel has buried alien which is as fast as Allen) and Wally has incalculable speed, (marvel has Hermes and runner with space stone.) so quicksilver still isn’t as fast as flash, but he can still deliver imp punches, but hasn’t learned the technique.

also quick is starting to give off a lightning trail behind him so that’s cool.

@joker567892: he can, if he can move his head upward 1 trillion times faster than light. No reason why he can’t move his body. But where would he run on?
