When Quicksilver Ran Out on X-Factor

In X-Men #25, Magneto strikes back after the world's governments tried to create a force field to keep him out. So Xavier puts together a team in X-Men #25 (by Fabian Nicieza, Adam Kubert and Matt Ryan) to take Magneto down. Quicksilver shows up to help out by joining the team due to it being, you know, his own father that they are after...

When they actually get into battle with Magneto, Pietro and Magneto have a big fight scene and it was actually to save Quicksilver that Wolverine attacked Magneto and had the adamantium pulled out of his skeleton!

Okay, so Xavier then mindwipes Magneto and the X-Men go home, but at the same time, Quicksilver's daughter with Crystal, Luna, is kidnapped to Genosha and the X-Men agree to help him get her back...

This leads to a crossover with the Avengers (who have also come to Genosha to rescue Luna) and in the end, Quicksilver helps get his daughter back but Magneto's replacement, Exodus, almost kills him...

He recuperates with the Avengers and he and Crystal get back together.

He is then written out in X-Factor #95 (by Lobdell, DeMatteis, Greg Luzniak and Milgrom)...
