In a beautiful piece of X-Men fan art, the metal-skinned Colossus displays his powers in a way that every mutated fan should see.
New fan art from colossi shows off the X-Men‘s hidden gem in a way the movies never can. This artwork fully captures the sometimes overlooked beauty of its powerful and invulnerable metallic skin. It is a unique and stunning tribute to one of the greatest heroes in Marvel comics.
Piotr Nikolayevich Rasputin is a Russian mutant with the power to transform his entire body into living steel, giving him amazing powers of strength and durability. He can withstand most attacks, but once wounded, he cannot heal in his metal form. In a way, this makes Colossus’ powers the opposite of Wolverine’s healing factor. Recruited by Professor Xavier to join his second-generation X-Men team, the mutant known as Colossus first appeared in Giant X-Men #1, created by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum. During his many years associated with the X-Men, Colossus has proven to be a mutant with not only a strong body, but also a strong heart. He is a peaceful and selfless hero who strives to protect those around him, and that noble character is reflected in this new fan art.
Colossus is a gentle giant. Those qualities along with his imposing and commanding looks have made him a fan favorite over the years. He has appeared in multiple iterations of X-Men comics teams, cartoon shows such as X-Men (1992) and X-Men Evolutionand in movies, like Deadpool and Deadpool 2† Colossus even almost appeared in New mutants† However, none of those images captured the true beauty of Colossus’ powers as illustrator did Louie Joyce has in his message on Twitter. It is an eye-catching portrait of the shining hero that invites fans to admire the true majesty of Piotr Rasputin and his amazing mutation.
Louie Joyce is an Australian illustrator and designer who has created more than a few standout portraits of X-Men and other comic book heroes. Known for his work on books such as haphaven and Beyond the last mountainJoyce is an artist with a distinct and impressive style. In this most recent piece he not only manages to capture the stoic and peaceful nature of Colossus, but with a dazzling use of color he beautifully recreates what it might look like when the light reflects off his living steel skin. Piotr is a powerhouse who can even beat Luke Cage, but he is also an artist and he would be very impressed and flattered by this remarkable image.
The metal-skinned mutant is one of the most likeable and popular heroes in X-Men comics, and this portrait captures both the serenity and strength of Piotr, as well as the majestic strength and beauty of colossi†
