1994 Marvel Pepsi (Mexico) Quicksilver Hologram #1

I mentioned in my blog about the 1995 Mexican DC Pepsi Cards that the set featured "Metalicas" chase cards for Flash and "Flash Reverso," as well as three of five holograms devoted to Flash, "Impulso," and, seriously, Max Mercury. Now we have a foreign exclusive Quicksilver card, featuring nobody's favorite anti-hero ever, which was merely basic card #13 from our '94 Fleer Flair set. That's all the attention domestic audiences would tolerate. This proves that as the French hail Jerry Lewis as a genius and Germans love David Hasselhoff, Speedy Gonzales is the single most influential American export South of the Border. See, my jaundiced perspective would have had me assuming they'd favor "aquatic" heroes, but clearly generations of running from La Migra has geared them toward super-speedsters.

If you'll excuse me, I have to prepare for my girlfriend's feeding me rat poison burritos tacos next time she cooks for me. While we await my final blog post ever, feel free to read up on this set here.
