The Early Years:
Like most mutants, Quicksilver (also known as Pietro Maximoff) and his twin sister the Scarlet Witch had to wait until their teen years before they fully realized the extent of their super powers. He learned that he was able to travel at the speed of sound for hundreds of miles before growing tired, while his sister held large amounts of magic energy and could set things aflame. Labeled as freaks, he used his speed to escape the village where they lived. The super villain Magneto soon after rescued them.
Enter Maury Povich “baby daddy” scenario. Neither the twins nor Magento were aware of their father/son/daughter relationship. Regardless, it most likely would not have mattered, as Magneto would have recruited them for the Brotherhood of Mutants either way.
They went along with the criminal intentions of the group until the Stranger abducted Magneto. Ironman then recruits the two into the Avengers, where they remained for many years.
The Post Avenger Years
After getting hurt in the heat of a battle against the Sentinels, Quicksilver left the Avengers.
Crystal, a member of the Inhumans, after rescuing him and the two became romantically involved, and eventually got married.
It wasn’t long before they had a child, and Magento came to see his grandchild. At first Pietro resented his father’s appearance, but later, when it appeared he had made a turn for the better, he relented.
As a member of the Inhumans group, his duties as an officer caused him to neglect his wife, Crystal. Fed up with his overwork-ethic, she had an affair.
Once Pietro found out, he attempted to frame the Avengers for treason, and while they were dealing with the repercussions, ambushed the team along with the android Zodiac Cartel.
Only when Vision posed the question of whether he was willing to orphan his own nephew did he stop his attack.
The Madness of the Scarlet Witch
Eventually, the two do lose their children. The Scarlet Witch goes mad at the loss, and transforms the world into the House of M, a world where mutants rule and humans are the minority.
However, she changes the world back once Magneto, the new world’s ruler, tries to kill Quicksilver with a Sentinel. The result of switching realities is the power loss of 98% of the mutant population, including Quicksilver.
After the High Evolutionary’s Isotope E caused Quicksilver to lose his powers, he exposed himself to the Terrigen Mists (the morphing power of the Inhumans), giving him the ability to move so quickly that he actually could time travel into the future.
Later, he has the ability to confront his dad, Magneto, while under the influence of the devastating strength of the mist. This higher level of the Terrigen allows him to actually grow the substance from his body, allowing him to restore other mutant’s abilities.
