Biography

Deadpool

"We can't allow this, Deadpool."
―Colossus[src]

Earlier in the new timeline, circa 2016, Colossus and his trainee, Negasonic Teenage Warhead see Deadpool's rampage on TV at Xavier's Mansion. They arrive to stop Deadpool from killing Ajax in their battle on the highway Allowing him to escape.

Enraged, Deadpool tried to attack Colossus, only to break most of his limbs. Colossus, wanting to recruit Deadpool to the X-Men, handcuffed him to his arm planning to take him to Professor Xavier. Deadpool however cuts off his own arm and escapes into a garbage truck below.

Later, Deadpool enlisted the help of Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead with the offer of considering to join the X-Men if they help him and the three get a ride from Dopinder to the aircraft carrier where Ajax and Christina are holding Vanessa hostage. Deadpool fights through Ajax's henchmen and takes on Ajax while Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead battle Christina with Negasonic Teenage Warhead using her powers causing the aircraft carrier to come apart. Colossus carries an unconscious Christina and Negasonic Teenage Warhead to safety as the aircraft carrier crashes down.

When Deadpool is about to kill Ajax for lying to him about a cure, Colossus tries to stop him. He gives a speech about heroism to him, but Deadpool gets bored and kills Ajax by shooting him in the head. Colossus is shocked and vomits at the sight, asking him why he had to do that. Although disgusted, Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead leave as Deadpool and Vanessa reunite and tells Wade theirs still a chance for him.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

When Logan woke up in the new timeline of 2023, Colossus was seen with Kitty teaching a class to younger mutants.

Character traits

Peter's positive traits are somewhat more exaggerated to the point that's almost comical, he is chivalrous, preachy and even cheesy, which the violent and foul-mouthed antihero, Deadpool, has to put up with. He would lecture his teammate about the importance of health and nutrition, scold Deadpool for swearing even in the middle of a battle, and shows decency and consideration to women, even those he reluctantly should be fighting against. He sees the good in Wade Wilson, and is determined to turn him into an X-Man, which the merc with a mouth is very reluctant to consider.
