    Default Max Mercury / Golden Age Quicksilver (Quality Comics) Appreciation (2019)

    NOTE: This is a continuation of the previous "Max Mercury appreciation" thread, which can be read here:
    From the original thread (started by Red obin back in late November of 2016),
    Bring him back!

    Seriously anyone who read Impulse back in the day will understand the love of this character, his great personality and wisdom. They brought him back in the first flash rebirth but did nothing with him, I would love to see him in a regular mentor role again.

    In the previous version of this here thread I shared some pages from Speed Force #1 (1997) where Max was going by the identity of "Whip Whirlwind" in the 1890s.


    Well, in Flash 80-Page Giant #1 (August 1998), there was a story (featuring Babe Ruth) about how Max was calling himself "Lightning" in the 1920s.

    I never read a single one of his original stories. Nonetheless, this Who's Who entry enflamed my imagination, and made him my favorite speedster. I LOVED the idea of a speedster who was both an acrobat and a gadgeteer.

    To me, "Max Mercury" never measured up to the Quicksilver of my imagination.
