Quote1 Look, O'Grady -- many of us came to the Avengers with baggage, myself included. Even Scott Lang -- your predecessor -- was a convicted criminal who literally stole his first costume. But just as Steve Rogers once vouched for me, he's vouching for you. That means we accept you. We put our reservations aside and trust that you'll be an asset to the team. You don't need to prowl around the shadows working up the courage to act like a man. You just need to understand that you're now an Avenger -- and that you belong here. Act like the man Rogers thinks you can be. Quote2

Quote1 As for Simon, Wanda's brought him back before -- she can do it again. It's like her secondary power. Quote2
--Pietro Maximoff (Earth-616)
Quote1 My ex-wife, Crystal, once told me I've spent my whole life running. An obvious and boring metaphor -- but she was right. I never settled in any one place long enough for it to become my home. Left as soon as things got the slightest bit messy. Running from a long list of things that I'm not proud of. Running away from my wife. From my daughter. Focusing on the bigger parts while ignoring my real responsibility. It was never my fault. Always mired in rationalizations. They pushed me. They started it -- I simply finished it. As long as I don't sink to his level, hey, I'm coming out ahead. It was just so easy. I'm his son -- Of course I have his temper. But then Wanda cast that damn spell--And I lost my excuse. Why did I really come here? I said I needed to know the truth. But that's not it. I wanted there to be some grand plot. Some strings I could point to and blame. Anything to keep up the lie. Anything to get my excuses back. But I've been given a second chance. An I'm done running. Every triumph, every failure, I own them all. And while the thought of it is terrifying -- it's also liberating. Quote2
--Pietro Maximoff (Earth-616)
Quote1 I can't leave the city for a minute without something ridiculous happening... this time, some kind of force field covering the island. Hmmmm... no gaps in the surface at all... Quote2
--Pietro Maximoff (Earth-616)
Quote1 Emily - I've never been a person who looked to religion for guidance. In a world filled with so much strife, God's light has always felt distant and weak. And yet, now I pray. I pray for your future, healthy and strong. I pray that I haven't destroyed your beauty and grace through my selfish actions. Wanda told me I must leave, and for once, I must concede she is correct. I have been a fool and need time and clarity to try and overcome it. There's nothing I can write here that will take back the mistakes I made or undo the hurt I've caused you. If you can find it in your heart to forgive me, I will endeavor to make myself worthy of such kindness. Until then, you are in my thoughts and prayers. - Pietro Quote2
--Pietro Maximoff (Earth-616)
Quote1 I will not wait an instant longer! Cling to your shadows -- your mad power plays -- as tightly as you'd like Cortez! My only concern -- is for my daughter! Quote2
--Pietro Maximoff (Earth-616)
Quote1 I cannot take her back! I cannot countenance betrayal! ... Enough about love! Enough about all of you! Quote2
--Pietro Maximoff (Earth-616)
Quote1 I'm freaking QUICKSILVER!!! And you can eat my freaking dust! Quote2
--Pietro Maximoff (Earth-616)
Quote1 If your type talked less and did more, you'd have been ruling the world years ago. Quote2
--Pietro Maximoff (Earth-616)
Quote1 I look like something out of a... a comic book! Quote2
--Pietro Maximoff (Earth-616)
Quote1 The future is written by the winners. History is written by the survivors. Quote2

Quote1 Once upon a time, I could have moved like lightning. Slain her before she ever knew what was happening...now I have to lunge after her like an arthritic snail. Quote2
--Pietro Maximoff (Earth-616)
Quote1 You may assume you know Magneto from your days as his students, but you don't know him at all. He will crush you if he believes you are standing in his way. Therefore, you are going to leave Genosha now. By force if necessary. Quote2
--Pietro Maximoff (Earth-616)
Quote1 Far too long have my sister and I suffered the indignities dealt us by homo sapiens... therefore, we have decided that our only cause is that of our own race... the race of homo superior! Quote2
--Pietro Maximoff (Earth-616)
Quote1 Enough! I will listen to no more of your Homo sapiens-sympathizing blasphemy! You have had your chance to join us -- and declined it! Therefore -- I can consider you nothing but our enemy! Quote2
--Pietro Maximoff (Earth-616)

It's a bit big for just five students, though, don't you think?

I do indeed. Which is why I'm opening our facilities to any young superhuman who wants instruction. Jocasta's been busy recruiting. And this is just the start. Our full-time students will continue to be our focus. But why limit ourselves? Why limit them? Greer, Pietro...welcome to a new era for Avengers Academy!
