Claim to Fame

As Colossus, Piotr is recognizable as a long-time member of the X-Men.


Mostly known as a member of the X-Men, Colossus is viewed by some as a hero and by others as an outlaw.


Born in a small farming commune in Siberia, Piotr was raised to be a farmer like his parents and never anticipated that he would ever have more than a simple, provincial life. When he wasn't out working the fields, Piotr spent his spare time drawing and painting, and thought this would always be his lot. He was fine with this, however after his mutant abilities manifested after saving his younger sister from a runaway tractor, Piotr was recruited to become a member of the mutant super-team known as the X-Men. Adopting the codename Colossus, Piotr became a stalwart and valued member of the team, experiencing adventures across both time and space as he has seen and done more than he ever dreamed (or wanted) as a child.

Character Details

Piotr Rasputin is a compassionate, caring and loyal individual. Quiet and introspective, he has the proverbial soul of a poet, and sees the world through the eyes of an artist. Though he may wish that he could live a simple life of honest labor, or spend his time drawing and painting, Piotr realizes that his mutant powers burden him with a greater responsibility to the world around him. He is a reluctant hero, but would never shirk his duties to use his abilities for good, nor to protect those close to him. It is that loyalty and responsibility that drives him, as he strives to help make the world (whether on a global scale, or just within his own circle of friends) a little better for his having been in it.
