    He's panel filler! Good on him.


    Ah, Manet's famous Dejeuner sur l'borscht.

    He was far and away my favorite male X-Man for a while but he has been used so poorly over the last few years IMO. I hated his death but it was part of a good story and a nice heroic sacrifice on his part. Whedon IMO did a very poor job with his resurrection. He was nothing but a prop for Kitty and the retread of their relationship was so blah. It's a bad relationship for both characters. Then of course Fraction had him as mopey/angry Piotr for so long. I'm curious to see how he handles the character now that Kitty is back....

    I think he'd be best used in Legacy with Rogue post SC.

    Anyone have pictures of when Colossus was sketching Psylocke?

    Or any pictures of Colossus involved in his art? I love those.

    If Carey were still writing that mix-match group he had in his first 12 issues +, I would have loved to see Colossus as a member of the group. He showcased all his characters well and they all had moments to shine. I recall he wrote Colossus right before Messiah Complex started.

    Iron Curtain from the Russian supergroup "Exiles" was a more nuanced strongman character:

    Colossus was a commie? Oh well. I'm glad he got rid of the shoulder flap costumes.

    My third favorite X-Man (after Psylocke & Archangel)!

    I wish they'd give him another mini-series; hopefully one that retcons that travesty David Hine wrote several years ago...

    Hine's my favorite writer but I've only been able to read the first issue of that. I haven't heard too many great things about it sadly.

    As a Colossus fan, you may want to borrow the issues (or tpb) from a friend. Worst case scenario, find them in a bargain bin, but I wouldn't waste any more money than necessary on it. Such a missed opportunity...

    Colossus is my favorite character in comics, hands down.

    But damn, his characterization has sucked for quite some time. Too often background filler, never seeming to play a significant role in anything important.

    I would love for a writer who is actually interested in telling stories with well-fleshed out characters to get a-hold of Colossus and several other underutilized x-men, and really go to town with them. I'm talking a small cast with no wallpaper characters.

    Man I hated Hine's Colossus mini. Took the Rasputin name to a ridiculous conclusion and needlessly muddied and retconned Colossus' history.
