Claim to Fame

Colossus is an X-Man, devoted and committed to peacefully promoting the mutant cause.


On his Earth, Peter is an artist, known mutant, and X-Man. On this world many see him as an up and comer in the criminal mutant community. These incongruent images may make life complicated…



  • 1985 - Piotr Nikolaievitch Rasputin is born at a remote farming collective in Siberia.
  • 1989 - After having scribbled on the walls many times, Piotr's parents buy the young man some art supplies, starting a hobby he will keep for the rest of his life.
  • 1995 - Buys his first Neil Diamond album.
  • 2001 - The teenaged Piotr accidentally triggers his mutant ability to shift into a large, more powerful armored form when a runaway tractor nearly kills his baby sister. His family keeps his mutation a secret.
  • 2002 - Having grown to be a physically imposing young man, Piotr begins working for a local crime family as an enforcer in order to keep food on his family's table. He advances quickly from collecting protection money to smuggling and selling illegal arms.
  • 2004 - When a bad deal degenerates into a firefight, Piotr is forced to shift into his armored form to save his life, exposing himself as a mutant. Convinced that he can never return home, he accepts a position with the Brotherhood in exchange for protection of his family.
  • 2005 - Implicated in multiple crimes. Leaves Russia and goes into hiding.
  • 2006 - Spotted in Afghanistan, presumably selling illegal arms as part of an attempt by the Brotherhood to wage a proxy war.
  • 2007 - Participates in an attack on a mutant prison. The Brotherhood liberates nearly all of the prisoners, leaving none of the guards alive.
  • 2008 - Participates in the destruction of a pharmaceutical company that claims to be working on a cure for mutancy.
  • 2009 - Assists with the takeover of the Cape Citadel missile base.
  • 2010 - Part of a Brotherhood strike force that invades Santo Marco.
  • 2011 - During a period of turmoil within the Brotherhood, Rasputin is found living in New York City under the assumed name of Peter Nicholas. He achieves some amount of local celebrity as an artist before being arrested. Escapes while in transit to a mutant detention center, presumably with Brotherhood assistance.
  • 2012-14 - Infrequent sightings. Presumably in hiding, potentially attempting to retire.


  • 1987 - Piotr Nikolaievitch Rasputin is born just outside the Chernobyl disaster site.
  • 1989 - Toddler Piotr survives a fire in the family's house without a mark on him. The child is considered odd, but his parents attempt to protect him from the intrusion of their government into their affairs.
  • 1990 — Piotr receives his first paint set and acquires a long term love of the arts.
  • 1993 — The Rasputin parents die tragically (in an effort to protect their kids), and all three of the Rasputin children are subjected to experimentation from their government.
  • 1994 — The children, and the other mutants undergoing experimentation are freed by the X-Men. They are then raised in Xavier's mansion.
  • 1998 — Governmental instability and distrust towards metahumans results in the registration act. Some peacefully comply; others see it as a trap.
  • 2000 — Mikhail becomes an extremist and joins the Brotherhood of mutants. Governmental restrictions mean that movement becomes more challenging for unregistered mutants.
  • 2004 — Peter has his first art show. It's a huge success.
  • 2006 — Peter becomes a full-fledged X-Man and defends the world against the attacks of the Brotherhood. He simultaneously completes his training as a paramedic. Having first responder status seems important in light of everything going on in the world.
  • 2009 — Peter dates Kitty; the pair become inseparable.
  • 2012 — The Sentinels are first introduced to navigate the metahuman problems associated with registration and compliance.
  • 2013 — The Sentinels take over all form of governance and see no difference between metahumans and humans. Metahuman deaths are on the rise. The X-Men are disappearing one at a time; both Kitty and Illyana die.
  • 2014 — The war between Sentinels and everyone else is unmanageable. People serve the Sentinels as slaves. A small enclave of Metahumans (including Brotherhood and X-Men who'd previously been enemies) work together to try to fight the Sentinels. Colossus acts as a tactician and soldier in their army alongside his brother Mikhail.
  • Present — The last onslaught of fighting means that the Sentinels have truly won. While taking a rather large beating, Colossus sees a flash, and is convinced this is the end… but he's brought to a very different reality.

Character Details

Peter is soft spoken, gentle, and shy. He has edges, but they aren't easily found or crossed. He has a desperate love for all things beautiful, right, and whole, and appreciates time for forethought and action. Despite this, he also has a very prominent impish side, mischievous, but not unkind. He values friendship, family, and justice above all else.
