    Must Reads

    Essential Fantastic Four: Volume 7. Quicksilver is found injured by Crystal from the Inhumans and a romance is ignited.

    X Factor #87: X-Aminations by Peter David is considered one of the best issues ever written. This issue gives a strong insight into the character of Quicksilver and why he acts the way he does.

    The House of M & Son of M. I'm putting House of M in as it ties into Son of M but it isn't as important as Son of M in my opinion. Son of M shows Quicksilver accepting his responsibility for the events of House of M and trying to regain his powers.

    X-Factor: The Quick and the Dead. This is a great follow up to Son of M. It shows Quicksilver at his worst and shows the beginning of his transition from villain to hero once more.
