I give Pietro so much slack ever since the issue of X-Factor where he is explaining to Doc Samson what its like to go through a day with his powerset.

Honestly if I lived my whole life at Superspeed(imagine waiting in line at an ATM, eating dinner, or even just having a conversation) I would be rageaholic by now. The fact that Pietro has the patience and self-control to just be an asshole makes him a saint in my eyes.

I also like the fact that these days he is presented as one of the more powerful people on whatever team he is on. Don't know that I have seen him lose a fight since he got his powers back.

Yeah that was some good writing from PAD back in the day concerning Pietro's mindset. (Mind you, it makes you wonder how the Flashes deal with it. Since they're mostly a cheerful lot.)

As for Pietro's recent form. I must admit to taking a real pleasure in seeing him taking down the always overconfident Mister X during Siege. That was a long overdue comeuppance for that character! Pietro really schooled him in what it's like to try and take on a speedster.

Pretty much. The Flashes (under most writers) can choose how fast they want to perceive time.

I honestly wasn't aware of that. (Most of my experience of the flashes has been from their team appearances and not their individual books..)

Thanks for the info. Now Pietro's got an additional reason to be jealous of living in the DC universe!

A more interesting take on speed perception was this one IMHO, as the poor sod didn't even get any benefit from it.

That's horribly depressing. I wonder though if that guy had had some amount of training if he couldn't have found a way to utilise it more effectively.

I mean Mister X above isn't any faster than a typically well trained fit individual, and up until Siege had made relatively profitable use out of it.

In all seriousness though, That was a well written story. Gonna have to seek it out. Thans for alerting me to it!

We look down on using "Bitchy" as a pejorative term on [community profile] scans_daily because of the historical sexist connotation of the word. While I guess in your sentence the one qualifying Magneto could possibly-maybe be seen as positive ;) the implied one qualifying Pietro could not, so please keep that in mind in the future.

Mags always seems like the quintessential Bitch With a Bad Attitude to me. I'll bet money he's a Saffire - The Uppity Blues Women fan.
