Who is Colossus?

Sunday, 29 November, 2009

I know X-MEN but I am not a fan of Marvel comics so when people are talking about Colossus, I was like; “Colossus, who?!” The only colossus I know is:


Haha. ‘Nuff said. I have officemates here who are into magic and cosplay, too. And what interests me to approach them last time is the glossy outfit of their TL.

Note: Incomplete Outfit

Sir Ryan was sooo cool that I asked him to post for me. (Ssssshhh… Yeah, I know what you’ve noticed. Shut up perv, I thought he fixed it when he excused himself before this shot! HAHAHA!)

Colossus (Piotr Nikolaievitch Rasputin) is a fictional character, a superhero in the Marvel Comics universe. Created by writer Len Wein and illustrator Dave Cockrum, he first appeared in Giant-Size X-Men #1 (May 1975). A Russian mutant, the character is a member of the X-Men, and is by far the physically strongest X-Man. Able to transform into a strong metallic form, even without his powers he still cuts a physically imposing figure standing at 7’5″. Throughout the series he has been portrayed as a quiet, shy character, honest and innocent. He’s now a man without a family, having lost all whom he’s ever loved including his parents, brother, sister and even Kitty Pryde, his primary romantic interest. He has had a fairly consistent presence in X-Men-related comic books since his debut. A talented artist, he only reluctantly agrees to use his powers in combat, feeling it is his responsibility to use his abilities for the betterment of human and mutant-kind.
