"So comrade - care to go another round?"



Born in a collective farm in Siberia, Piotr Rasputin grew up a strong and healthy boy who made his parents proud. When he became a teenager, he discovered he had the strange ability to form an indestructable metallic skin over his normal flesh. While in this armored form, he also possessed great strength, and he often used this ability secretly to aid his family on the farm. His secret became public, however, when he was forced to switch to armored form to save his sister from a runaway tractor. He was exiled from the farm, both for being a mutant and for destroying government property. He found a home with the X-Men, where he learned that there were other mutants like him. Since the time he first set foot in the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning, he has had many ups and downs and even left the team once. However, there is no doubt that Colossus remains one of the most loyal members of the mutant band, prepared to sacrifice himself for any one of his teammates.
