    Piotr Nikolaievitch Rasputin
    (former) Peter Nicholas, The Proletarian 
    (normal) 6'6", 
    (armored) 7'5" 
    (normal) 250 lbs (113 kg),
    (armored) 500 lbs (227 kg)
    (normal) Blue,
    (armored) Silver 
    New York City
    First Appearance:
    Giant Sized X-Men #1 (1975) 
    Organic Steel: Colossus is a mutant with the superhuman ability to convert
    the tissue of his entire body into an organic steel-like substance, granting
    him superhuman strength and a high degree of resistance to bodily harm. This
    substance, resembling organic steel, is of unknown composition but appears
    to be analogous to osmium and to carbon steel. He is able to transform into
    this armor-like state at will (the process is virtually instantaneous) and
    remain in that form for an as yet undetermined amount of time. (The longest
    time he has remained in armored form by choice so far has been five days).
    Once in his armored form he remains so until he consciously wills himself
    back to normal. If he is rendered unconscious, however, he spontaneously
    reverts to his normal form. While in his armored state, Colossus possesses 
    the same degree of mobility that he does in his normal form. 
    The process by which Colossus transforms himself to armored form and back
    (including his gain of additional mass from an unknown, perhaps
    extra-dimensional, force) remains unknown. Colossus cannot become partially
    or selectively armored; his body is either entirely converted or not. Even
    his eyes become steel-like. It is not knowned what could pierce his armored
    body although some super strong energy attacks can damage it. It has always
    been asked if the adamantium claws of wolverine could plunge into his body
    in armour state but that remains unseen. 
    Superhuman Durability: In his armored form Colossus is highly resistant to
    most forms of bodily harm. His armor is capable of withstanding ballistic
    penetration, including that of a 110 millimeter Howitzer shell. He could
    survive a collision with a loaded, one-ton flatbed truck at 100 miles per
    hour or an explosion of 450 pounds of TNT. He can survive extremes of
    temperature from 70 degrees above absolute zero (-390 degrees Fahrenheit)
    to approximately 9000 Fahrenheit. However, it is theorized that above the
    latter temperature, his armored form would begin to melt. Colossus's armored
    form cannot rust under normal Earth conditions. 
    Self-Sustenance: His normal lungs are capable of holding his breath for 3.6
    minutes. in his armoured state Piotr as no need to breath,eat or sleep and
    by being so he does not become tired like normal people. 
    Organic Steel Healing: ability to heal damage he suffered in his organic
    steel form when he returns to human form, though he only can do this if the
    damage is less then 70%. 
    Enhanced Endurance: due to his organic steel form he is granted enhanced 
    Enhanced Speed: due to his organic steel form he is granted enhanced speed,
    compinsating for his increased weight, allowing him to move basiclly as fast
    as he could if he was unarmored. 
    Colossus is in unusually fine physical health, permitting the transition back
    and forth from his normal organic flesh state to his armored form to occur
    with minimal stress on his system. 
    Strength Level: In his normal state Piotr also has superhuman strenght at
    least several times more than a normal man maybe due to his size and body
    weight.In his armoured state however he is able of lifting or pressing about
    90 tons under optimal conditions and becomes one of the most stronger beings
    on earth able of put up a fight with the likes of Juggernaut, Thor, Thing
    and many others and hold his ground. 
    "Known Abilities"- Piotr is the steel warrior with an artist soul and in his
    heart he as always been more of a farmer than a warrior. His personality is
    very sweet and tender and he is a very skilled artist in fact he is the
    "picasso" of the x-men perfering to draw a picture of his teammates than to
    put up a fight. he is a very noble soul and altought big and tough in aparence
    his the most sensible of all the x-men. 
    Piotr Rasputin was born on the Soviet collective farm called the Ust-Ordynski
    Collective near Lake Baikal in Siberia. His superhuman powers emerged in
    adolescence. At first, Rasputin was content simply to use these powers to aid
    the other people of the Collective. 
    However, Rasputin was contacted by Professor Charles Xavier, founder of the
    X-Men, when Xavier was organizing a new team of mutant X-Men to help him
    rescue the original X-Men from the sentient island Krakoa. Rasputin agreed
    to leave the farm community in which he was born and raised to go to America
    with Xavier. Xavier gave Rasputin the code name "Colossus" and Rasputin aided
    Xavier's other new recruits in their battle against Krakoa. After the battle
    was won, Rasputin remained in the United States with the new X-Men while the
    rest of his family stayed on the farm. 
    Rasputin's family always remained in his thoughts. Shortly thereafter a
    woman known as Miss Locke kidnapped many of the X-Men's loved ones to use as
    hostages in order to force the X-Men to aid her in freeing her employer,
    Arcade, from captivity by one of Doctor Doom's robots. Among her captives
    was Colossus's younger sister Illyana, whom Locke had somehow kidnapped from
    the Siberian collective farm and transported to the United States. The X-Men
    freed Illyana from captivity, and she went to live with her brother Piotr
    (known as Peter in America) at Xavier's mansion. Due to her later captivity
    in a dimension known as Limbo where she spent years while only mere moments
    elapsed on Earth, Illyana became the adolescent sorceress known as Magik. 
    During the morlocks massacre at the hands of sinister´s marauders Colossus
    was injured by wildtide shurikens and become unable to return to his human
    form. Later along with the rest of the X-men he fought the magical being
    knowned has the Adversary and was named dead altough he and the X-men were
    ressurected by Roma and given a new home and base in Australia becoming radar
    invisible. Later after the Inferno Crisis he and the rest of the X-men
    returned to their base in Australia. After Storm´s " death" he along with
    Havok,Dazzler and Psylocke crossed the Perilous Siege and he found himself
    in new york but with no memories of his former life and became a famous
    artist and became involved in a realtionship with the morlock Callisto.
    later his memories returned and he once became an x-man. After Illyana was
    returned to her true Earth age, Colossus thought it would be better for
    Illyana if she went back to live with their parents. Sadly, her parents were
    slain and she was kidnapped by a mutant known as the Soul Skinner who hoped
    to genetically evolve Illyana to the point where she would have the use of
    her powers again. Colossus, with the help of the X-Men, saved Illyana and
    brought her back to the mansion. 
    Later, Illyana became the first tragic victim to be infected with the Legacy
    Virus and die from it. The deaths of his immediate family caused Colossus to
    rethink his position with the X-Men and join Magneto and his Acolytes, who
    had offered him an alternative to the X-Men's way of fighting and living. 
    His stay with Magneto was not long once he realized that Avalon was not the
    place for him, either. He left in search of the only person he felt truly
    cared for him, his former love and teammate Kitty Pryde, now a member of
    Excalibur. Colossus traveled to England, where he found Kitty in the arms of
    her new love, Pete Wisdom. Colossus, enraged, attacked Wisdom, and although
    the battle was short-lived, they both sustained minor injuries. 
    Colossus accepted Kitty's new life and chose to become a member of Excalibur.
    Once the team dissolved, Kitty, Colossus and Nightcrawler returned to the
    States and became active members of the X-Men. 
    Beast, one of his X-Men teammates, claimed to have found the cure for the
    Legacy Virus after consulting the late Moira MacTaggert's notes. However, it
    required a mutant to activate their powers, and the process would be fatal.
    Colossus agreed to use it despite Beast's warnings that it might not work.
    Colossus was successful, and the cure was spread worldwide, claiming his
    life in the process. Colossus' body was supposedly cremated, and Kitty
    scattered the ashes over his Russian farmland home; however, his body had
    secretly been stolen by Ord, an alien who had learned that an Earthly mutant
    would be responsible for destroying his world. Ord had come to Earth to
    declare war, but the spy agency S.W.O.R.D., a sub-division of S.H.I.E.L.D.
    handling extraterrestrial matters, was able to settle diplomatically with
    him. Ord had Colossus restored to life and imprisoned him for years while
    experimenting on him. 
    Ultimately, Ord discovered the Legacy Virus cure still in Colossus' system
    and presented his findings to Benetech geneticist Doctor Kavita Rao, who
    modified it to create a "cure" for the "mutant condition." Learning of the
    cure, the X-Men went to Benetech to investigate. There, Kitty found Colossus
    alive and, after overcoming her initial shock, took him to aid the X-Men
    against Ord. Defeated, Ord was taken into custody, and Colossus returned
    home with the X-Men to adjust to his new lease on life. 
    Currently Colossus has returned to the X-Men and his long love Shadowcat.
    Despite his impressive physical power and stature, Colossus is actually one
    of the gentlest and least-aggressive X-Men characters. He would prefer to
    be a soft-spoken artist, but realizes his responsibility to use his powers
    for the betterment of humanity. 
    Soon after, Colossus became involved in a mystery involving the deaths of
    several of his cousins, all of whom (like himself) were descended from the
    “doom of Old Russia”, Grigori Rasputin. It was eventually revealed that
    Grigori was attempting to return through his descendants, and that his old
    ally Mister Sinister had teamed with Colossus' brother Mikhail to hasten
    the process. Ultimately, Mikhail sought to protect Colossus by exiling
    himself to ensure Grigori could never return.

    Hello, this is my FAQ on Colossus of X-Men Legends II : Rise of Apocalypse, I am
    mainly writing this FAQ because I like Colossus and he's my favoritte character.
    a2. Why use Colossus?
    Personally, I used Colossus because he was and still is my all time favorite
    X-Men...but even if he has the lowest ratings, I don't see any difference with
    him and any other tank in the game so why complain about him. Another thing is
    that Colossus looks so much cooler than other characters because who else has
    shiny skin? Aside from this he's got a cool russian accent...
         a2.50. Strengths
             He's got big damage, Might and other characteristics of a tank...
             actually he is a typical tank. Plus! he's got a lot of passives AND
             really really good damaging attacks PLUS the useful skill Mutant
             Master so he doesn't lose his energy. and remember...HE IS MIGHTY,
             HE IS COLOSSUS!!!
         a2.75. Weaknesses
             He can't fly, Teleport. that's the worst problem he has... aside
             from this he only has melee attacks so he can't fight those who are
             immune to melee but who cares...your not alone, you've got allies
    b2. Costumes
    Check these links out to see his costumes... I couldn't really find all of his
    costumes so I'll just describe the once I couldn't find...

    h3. Unbreakable
    Boost, Xtreme
    Level 20
    Makes Colossus invincible and doubles his damage for a time.
    This skill is better than Demolition...think of it, instead of doing
    really big damage you become invincible and your damage doubles for
    45 seconds so you can do the damage your skills do x2 for 45 seconds.

    Here I'll tell how to use, level up, etc.
    a5. Strategy:
    Since Colossus is a tank you should help your teammates by charging the
    enemy head on and staying there fighting serving as a wall for the ranged
    fighters in the team...When using Colossus the thing you should always
    remember is to keep hitting because the best defense is a good offense.
    You won't really be running out of EP since you have a lot of energy and
    mutant master so you just have to keep attacking. When fighting
    enemies charge in using Siberian Express than start hitting
    with one Thunder Clap and then follow it up with a series of Melee attacks
    than a Thunder Clap and then a series of Melee attacks and then repeat the
    process until they're dead

    a6. Easy Techbits (Thanks to techiedude)
        Want techbits? All you have to do is to go to the Tower Apex
        (end of Act 4) and break stuff...Want more? Read-on then...
        here's how you do it in 5 easy steps:
        1. Replace two of your current team members with Gambit and Toad,
        if you aren't already using them on your team...
        2. Ramp up Toad's Xtreme power "Plunder" and "Secretion" as high
        as you can and ramp up Gambit's Xtreme power "Prince of Thieves"
        and Energy Form as high as you can and a rank on staff Slam...
        3. Go to the Tower Apex and Get ready to break stuff (not yet)...
        4. Select Toad and activate "Plunder"and "Secretion" then select
        Gambit and activate "Prince of Thieves" and "Energy Form" making
        Gambit really Quick...
        5. Break Stuff using staff slam...
    Keep in mind that their Xtreme powers are time-limited so you'll need to
    use their Xtreme powers 3-4 times to clear the entire level of canisters
    and get the maximum benefit (depending on how high their XTreme power is
    leveled-up) but trust me you won't run out of Xtreme tokens because of all
    things you break that give tokens (It practically pays for itself). By doing
    this you'll get alot of techbits and I mean A LOT...this trick is great
    for buying Skill points and levels.
    b6. Team Choices
    b6.50. Recommended Team Members
    Nice Character who can support
    Colossus from behind and Secretion
    makes up for the lack of Speed
    of Colossus
    Another good behind support

    Colossus do even more damage
    Another good support and Energy
    Fury makes Colossus do even more
    See Gambit's reasons
    Jean Grey:

    Some Team bonus's that could be useful. (all have Colossus in em')

    c6. Colossus' Stats (Thanks to Majestros and PapaGamer)
    c6.50. Bonus Points
    All four stats have 250 point ceilings and there is no way to take back 
    assigned stat points.  At every level increase, several bonus points are 
    automatically allocated to predetermined areas.  Melee-oriented characters 
    typically receive regular Strike upgrades while spell-caster characters
    end up  with frequent Focus boosts.  Thus, reaching the 250 point cap for
    any one stat before hitting the lvl99 maximum equates to wasted stat points.
    Here are the stats of an untouched Colossus at level 1 and 99:
    At level 1:
    Body  : 20
    Focus : 8
    Strike: 24
    Speed : 16
    At level 99:
    Body  : 69
    Focus : 8
    Strike: 147
    Speed : 41
    c6.75. Hidden Maximums
    Only Tech Stations and Danger Room missions can provide permanent increases 
    past the 250 point limit.  However, stats have been known to reset if pushed 
    above their hidden preset maximums, making unplanned Tech Station usage 
    risky.  Luckily, Danger Room mission bonuses have no effect on maxed out 
    stats.  Use Tech Stations to swiftly approach a desired stat limit, then 
    switch over to Danger Room missions the rest of the way.  The following table 
    catalogues every stat point cap in the game, taking the guesswork out of the 
    Tech Station gamble.  Equipment enhancements are not bounded by these limits.
    Here are the Hidden Maximums of Colossus:
    Body  : 304
    Focus : 250
    Strike: 310
    Speed : 274
    d6. Conversation with Kitty
    In Act 4 Kitty Pryde will be there standing near the
    sewers and if you talk to her using Colossus, you will
    get cute but cheezy conversation between the two lovers...
    P.S. I don't have the full conversation yet, I'll update it
    when I get it...
                                      7. Goodbye
