Born on the Ust-Ordynski Collective in Russia, Piotr Rasputin grew up a dutiful son and a responsible worker on his family’s farm. His mutant abilities manifested when he rescued his younger sister Illyana from a runaway tractor. Soon after, Charles Xavier recruited him to join the second generation of X-Men, whose first mission was rescuing the previous team from the living island of Krakoa.
His tenure with the X-Men taught Rasputin how to control his powers and introduced him to many good friends and his long-time love, Kitty Pryde. It also pushed him into a life where he has lost many loved ones and discovered uncomfortable truths about his family, his brother, and his homeland.
After his sister died from the mutant-targeted Legacy Virus, Colossus sacrificed his own life in order to disseminate the cure. Denizens of the alien Breakworld secretly stole his body and resurrected him during their experimentation. His friends have only recently discovered that he is alive, after spending the last couple of years believing him dead.
