    Default Colossus Appreciation 2020

    Time to give props to the best X-Man of them all. Yes, we have to wait another month to see how DoX deals with our favorite mutant in the next issue of X-Force, but with an editor who has gone on record as hating him, all we Colossus fans can do is hope for the best.

    But until then, let us appreciate Peter (or Piotr if you never read the Claremont issues). This thread is all about the cool character that is Colossus.

    Colossus has all the wrong friends. He needs to approach Emma Frost about putting together a Gallery Show in NYC. Maybe teach art expression on Krakoa.

    I kinda hate that he's with Domino. He should try to work his way out of combat and find a new way to help the Mutant cause.

    I wish Peter still had his stretching ability he got as a Horseman. That really made him unique when it came to Marvel's strong men.

    To my knowledge, only Sandman has the elongation/super-strength ability.
    I've seen your end and it starts with you challenging me.

    Ah that weird gap where everyone got excellent redesigns but they fought Inhumans so we try to forget everything. Still marked as the point I realized Jean Grey makes more sense as a young sidekick to Wolverine than a love interest, Colossus looks best with a beard, and Iceman wore spandex shorts.

    Oh, I know it is his birth name. But he was rarely referred to as Piotr, in the books and in fandom, until his stint in Excalibur.

    I'm absolutely looking forward to our big boy's return.



    Hopefully he can recover soon from whatever's going on with him.
    Boop! Krakoa forever!

    What are you talking about Magik calls him that all the time.

    Probably just to differentiate him from Kitty's other Peter at the time. But yeah...up until that he was Peter.

    Of course, she was still in Russia when he came to the US, that is all she knew him as. My brother has a nickname amongst his friends, but I still call him by his first name.

    Magik was missing from the books for nearly a decade leading to his stint in Excalibur. Omnipitis isnt wrong. Just go back and read any book with him in the late 80s/early 90s

    Or even mid-70's to mid-80's. Ugh, I feel bad I mentioned the name thing when I started this post, but 95% of the time (probably more) he was referred to as Peter, which was not his birth name, but his nickname/alias when he came to the US up until Excalibur. In Uncanny from way back his friends and teammates called him "Peter" a lot more than "Colossus".

    By this logic, the movie "Logan" should have been called "James".

    Again, I should not have been snarky when I began this appeciation page, and I hope it does not bring it off the rails. While his birthname is Пётр Николаевич Распутин, he went by Peter for a long, long time, until he joined Excalibur. And even after, if a writer liked him, he was Peter.

    Ok, moving forward...
