Born to a simple farm life, Piotr Rasputin was the younger brother of the famous cosmonaut Mikhail Rasputin. Gifted as an artist, Piotr was content with his simple life, until he was approached with a chance to change the world, by Professor Charles Xavier. After joining Professor X's X-Men, Piotr has been using his mutant power, to turn to organic steel and gain superhuman strength, to fight for the peaceful coexistence of mutants and humans most of his life. After his younger sister, Illyana Rasputin, was kidnapped, Piotr had her live with him, until she was kidnapped again, by Belasco, and kept aged over ten years and returned as a sorceress. After his parents were murdered and his sister died of the Legacy Virus, Piotr began to loose his resolve and, at his sister's funeral, joined mutant terrorist, Magneto's Acolytes on Avalon. After Avalon's destruction, Colossus joined Excalibur, but later returned to the X-Men. When Beast found a cure for the Legacy Virus, Colossus sacrificed himself to give a serum. After being revived, by Ord of the Breakworld, Colossus rejoined the X-Men and, after the releasing of the Asgardian God of Fear, Juggernaut became Kuurth Breaker of Stone and Cyttorak granted his power to Colossus.
Avengers vs the X-MenEdit
Colossus approached Cyttorak and asked him to release him from his service as his Avatar, since he was now the host of the Phoenix as well. Cyttorak refused however, stating that Colossus was his favorite Avatar in millenia due to the fact that his profession as a hero made him engage in glorious destruction on a regular basis. Cyttorak also stated that he was willing to share Colossus with the Phoenix since as a force of rebirth and destruction, the Phoenix and Cyttorak are not incompatible. Colossus attempts to force Cyttorak to release him by using the power of the Phoenix, but as a demon lord Cyttorak is far too powerful and he merely returns Colossus back to Earth. After that, Colossus and his fellow Phoenixes detected Mr. Sinister deep beneath the Earth's surface; Sinister had built a copy of 19th century London underground together with an army of his clones. Colossus and the other Phoenixes realized that Sinister would be a great threat to their new global Utopia and traveled beneath the Earth in order to destroy him. Sinister was prepared for this however, and had been expecting them. Sinister planned to steal the Phoenix Force from them in order to use it for his own devices. He pitted the Phoenixes against clones of X-Men and X-Men foes alike, such as Gambits, Cyclopses and Sabretooths. He used a device to siphon the Phoenix Force from them into six clones of Jean Grey. Magneto, Psylocke, Danger and Storm pursued the Phoenixes in an attempt to help them, but they were no match for the Phoenix wielding clones. During the battle however, Emma Frost was able to enter the mind of one of the clones in order to communicate with the Phoenix. She reminded the Phoenix that it had come to Earth for a reason and that Sinister would merely keep it trapped under the Earth forever. The Phoenix violently left the clones and returned to the Phoenix Five, who used their great power to incinerate Sinister and destroy his city.
Avengers vs X-men ConsequencesEdit
Storm found Peter in to the ruins of the farm in Siberia he had created as a Phoenix. He was in a cave and was trying to figure out what he will do next. He keeps on sculpting face of Magik and kept smashing it. He said to her that either you leave or take him in. She left him there the way he is.
Colossus is found by Cable hiding in the Art Institute of Chicago. Cable, looking for Colossus' help, brings him a piece of armor meant to keep Colossus' powers in check as he is seen with parts of his body uncovered while the rest is in his organic steel form. Colossus attacks Cable, infuriated about killing some people and assaulting the Avengers. Cable puts device on Colossus as he reverts to his human and Cable subdues Pete, telling him that he got his licks in and this confrontation is over.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Colossus can turn his body into pure organic steel, making him near invincible and powerfully strong.
After the Juggernaut became Kuurth: Breaker of Stone, one of the Heralds of a long-dormant god of fear known as the Serpent, Colossus made a bargain with Cyttorak, the other-dimensional being who originally empowered the Juggernaut, to gain the power to stand against Kuurth. Colossus became the new avatar of the Juggernaut. With the abilites of the Juggernaut he became even more powerful, strong enough to take on even the Red Hulk.
Colossus was one of five avatars of the Phoenix Force which granted him the great powers of the Phoenix. Also, Colossus' powers ,without the Phoenix Force, with the Phoenix now are boosted to unlimited levels.
