Between the comics and the movies, Marvel basically dominates the superhero industry

For those of you who haven't seen The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, STOP READING NOW!!!! Major spoilers ahead. For those of you who have, you know that this movie introduces us to the Maximoff twins. Well, when I heard the rumors that quicksilver dies in this movie, I didn't really believe it. When I saw the movie and realized that he actually does die (while saving Hawkeye and the little boy) I was absolutely devastated!!! But when I got home, I started thinking about it and realized....


Think about it, Before they fought Ultron, Captain America gave an awesome pep talk to the Avengers (and would-be Avengers) saying, "If you get hurt, hurt them back, and if you die, walk it off," and the camera flashes to Quicksilver (aka Pietro Maximoff) catching his breath. Marvel is notorious for their easter eggs and I believe that this was a HUGE one.

Secondly, at one point in the battle, the Maximoff twins walk into an area full of police gun fire. One of the officers orders the hold fire, but one ditzy officer fires his gun anyways, shooting Quicksilver in the arm. It didn't even phase him!! He just looks at him with that really annoyed "really?" look on his face and keeps on fighting like the badass he is!

My third point of interest is the fact that hardly anyone actually dies in the Marvel Universe. I mean think about it, in the first Avengers movie, agent Phil Coulson gets stabbed through the heart by Loki's staff. Everyone believes he is dead, I even shed a tear at that scene, but Marvel miraculously brought him back in Agents Of Shield. The same thing happened with Loki, Nick Fury, and Bucky Barnes. Thor believed Loki to be dead at the end of the movie Thor, but he returned in The Avengers proving to not actually be dead. In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the Winer Soldier turns out to be none other than Steve Rogers BEST FRIEND James Buchanan (Bucky) Barnes who Steve believed to have died before he become a Cap-cicle. Also, all of shield is lead to believe that Nick Fury was killed by H.Y.D.R.A, but we find out at the end of the movie that he isn't really dead either. NO ONE IMPORTANT ACTUALLY DIES IN THE MARVEL UNIVERSE!!!! I refuse to believe that quicksilver will be the first.

My last theory has to do with Helen Cho's cradle which is used to create The Vision. Not only was this contraption used to actually create a living, breathing creature, but the artificial skin was used to heal Hawkeye's wounds he received from the opening scene battle. I don't know about you guys, but I believe that if this thing can create The Vision AND heal a human being, it should be able to save a superhuman with enhanced healing capabilities.

What do you guys think? Do you think Quicksilver is actually dead, or is Marvel just messing with us? Let me know in the comments below!
