Quicksilver and Quasar

A to Z Challenge – SUPER cross stitch

Q is for Quicksilver


Quicksilver is from weelittlestitches’ superhero alphabet sampler.

Super speedy Quicksilver! He’s the twin brother of the Scarlet Witch and, in most depictions of the character, the son of Magneto.

He’s quick-witted and quick-tempered, and his abrasive and impatient personality is a result of the world moving in slow motion through his eyes.

He’s kind of a hothead because of his impatience, but I like his snarky attitude and his snappy retorts. He’s a redeemable villain, and he’s a reformed superhero.

Quicksilver guest-stars in three episodes of the X-Men animated series. He is a recurring character in the animated series X-Men: Evolution. Quicksilver also appears as a member of the Brotherhood of Mutants in the Wolverine and the X-Men animated series.

Quicksilver will be appearing in the upcoming 2016 film X-Men: Apocalypse with Evan Peters reprising the role.


Q is for Quasar


Quasar is from fangirl stitches’ girl power superhero comic book alphabet.

I knew nothing about Quasar before stitching her, then I learned that there were several superheroes that went by the name Quasar in the Marvel universe.

This Quasar in all her stitched glory is Phyla-Vell.

Her SUPER abilities include superhuman strength, flight, energy projection and absorption, and cosmic awareness. She can fire energy blasts and fly. She also acts like an “energy sponge,” absorbing any energy attacks directed at her and returning them as energy blasts.

Quasar (Phyla-Vell) appears alongside the other Guardians of the Galaxy in The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes episode “Michael Korvac.”

I’m unfamiliar with both of these characters. If she was in Guardians of the Galaxy, I don’t remember seeing her, unless she wasn’t in the film.

She wasn’t in the film – the Guardians have fluctuating members like the Avengers, but there’s a core membership. Quasar is more of an ally/affiliate of the Guardians.

They both are cute; I hadn’t heard of them before but adorable!


Thanks for telling me who Quasar is. I knew nothing about her… except she was about the only female superhero starting with Q that I could find! 🙂

You’re welcome! I’ve been researching every superhero that I’ve never really heard of before – it’s definitely making the challenge more interesting and even more fun.

I’m thinking that when I finally get to the comic book store near my house that I’ll be dropping some cash on quite a variety of comics.
