I know I'm just asking for speculation, but it seemed like he was never really straining himself and we never got to see his full potential in Infinity War. If you had to guess, what do you think his upper limits would look like if he hadn't been caught off guard?
@bflynn316: I'm pretty sure my previous posts explain why I feel that way. A mach 4 running quicksilver won't have been killed by bullets at mach 2.5 speed if he's constantly running to push Hawkeye. He'd be too fast.
Anyway, I've seen better calcs that put him at much slower speeds which makes sense why he died
He can't push Hawkeye and a kid at mach 4. He doesn't have the speedforce to protect them, the sheer velocity would be fatal. The way I understood the scene in the movie where he got shot was that he was faster than the bullets (that's why he was able to run from the loading vehicle to Hawkeye before the bullets hit him) but not fast enough to divert their paths (ala the quicker Quicksilver in DoFP) so blocking them was the only option. I would however be interested in seeing those better calcs if you can get me a link.
@bflynn316: I did watch the video and I've watched many of his videos. He's still wrong, quicksilver isn't almost hypersonic.
Care to explain why you feel that way? I'm open to hear your critique but as of right now you've not done an excellent job backing your statements in my opinion. That's not a personal attack, I just feel you've been making broad statements without explaining your logic.
I remember routing for Sandman in Spiderman 2 as a kid. I think when the villains are written well they're easy to sympathize with. When they're easy to sympathize with, sure sometimes I'll hope that the villain comes out successful.
