Powers and Abilities


  • Organic Steel Transformation: Colossus is a mutant with the superhuman ability to convert the tissue of his entire body into an organic steel-like substance. This substance resembling 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 the armored state, Colossus possesses the same degree of mobility that he does in his normal form. The conversion from flesh and bone to organic steel is accomplished by a psionic whole-brain interface with an ionic form of osmium, an extremely dense metal, located in another dimension. In willing the act of transformation, Colossus actually exchanges osmium atoms for his carbon atoms. The psionic interface with the other dimension re-creates all of Colossus's body in functionally similar organic ionic-osmium materials. The process by which Colossus gains 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. Unlike his Earth-616 counterpart, Pyotr's mutation causes his steel form to become his default form. It takes energy and concentration to revert back into his flesh form for short durations of time.
  • Superhuman Strength: After transforming into his armored state, Colossus possesses vast superhuman strength. As a teenager, he was sufficiently strong enough to lift about 70 tons. However, as a fully mature adult, his strength has increased to the point that he is able to lift more than 75 tons but no more than 100 tons.
  • Superhuman Stamina: Also, while in armored form, Colossus' musculature produces considerably less fatigue toxins than the musculature of a normal human. At his peak, he can physically exert himself at peak capacity for several days before the build up of fatigue toxins in his blood begins to impair him.
  • Superhuman Durability: In his armored form Colossus is invulnerable to most forms of bodily harm. His armor is capable of withstanding ballistic penetration, including that of a 110 millimeter Howitzer shell. He can survive extremes of temperature from 70 degrees above absolute zero (-390 degrees Fahrenheit) to approximately 9000 degrees Fahrenheit. He can 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 also survive falls from great heights while in his armored body.
  • Self-Sustenance: He is no longer a carbon-based life form and does not eat or breathe the same way as normal humans.
  • Malleable Bio-Organic Ionic-Osmium Shape-shifting: This allows him to alter his shape by collapsing into a featureless mass, extending blades from his skin, or molding himself into different forms. His ability to shape shift extends to the most basic of rudimentary weapons.
  • Molecular Adhesion: gives him the ability to cling to solid surfaces and move his body at will even without overt locomotive features.


  • Skilled Painter: Pete is a highly skilled artist.
  • Expert Combatant: Even though Pete has a gentle demeanor and personality, he is a skilled hand to hand combatant, having received some training personally from Wolverine. He has also honed himself through years of combat training within the X-Men's Danger Room.

Strength level

Class 100 strength, currently Pyotr is strong enough to and has been shown to lift at least 100 tons and more. As a teenager he was not as strong and could lift about 70 tons. Also even without transforming into his metal form Pyotr possesses the strength of a human of similar age and build who engages in regular extensive exercise, as a result he can lift up to twice his body weight . Pyotr can press lift 700 lbs in his normal form.


Just like all metal in the marvel universe, Colossus's metal skin is vulnerable to the anti-metal Vibranium. Colossus instinctively turns back into his normal form when he comes into contact with something made of Vibranium.
