One of the most mysterious heroes of the past, Quicksilver appeared seemingly from nowhere in 1940. He was never seen without his mask. It was eventually revealed that he had previously been a circus acrobat, but how he gained his amazing speed has never been disclosed.

When first seen, Quicksilver was a super-speedster unlike any other, as he combined his swiftness with amazing acrobatics. He was able to dodge bullets with ease, and even to race between the blades of a whirling propeller. Sometimes he seemed to defy gravity, though he was not a true flying hero. However, leaping several stories was a simple feat for him.

He was largely a loner, yet he had friends, such as an Indian named Shoshone. Quicksilver's closest friend - and perhaps his only confidant - was a youthful Chinese server named Hoo Mee. He shared Quicksilver's secret lair in Oakwood Park, apparently a hidden cave remodeled into living quarters and a laboratory - for this mystery man was also an accomplished chemist. In his second recorded adventure he used special firefighting capsules of his own creation to extinguish a series of fires on the New York waterfront.

It is not known whether Quicksilver ever used a secret identity; if so, he was never seen in it. His lifestyle resembled those of certain other crimefighters who wore masks because their real identities were believed dead, but whether this was the case with Quicksilver is anybody's guess.

This "Laughing Robin Hood", as he was called, battled crime for nine years, then vanished as mysteriously as he had come. Perhaps he resumed his true ID and retired; he seemed to have ample financial resources. It is hoped this was the case and that Quicksilver did not die in action.

Converted characters, most of the times, unavoidably exceeds the 45-point limitation that the ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying Game core book recommends. Character revised according to rules presented in ICONS Great Power book
