mutant colossus from outer space
His X-Men teammates and mutants at large had begun to question Colossus's loyalties after he joined the resistance. On a mission to rescue four defecting X-Men, Colossus and the rest of the X-Men were attacked by newly escaped members of the Genoshan Institute of Genetics. During the fight, Colossus developed a psychic connection to them, which allowed him to see all the damage that they were doing to themselves. He telepathically informed the X-Men of their resolve, and they all worked together to fight off the new rebels. Having won, the X-Men ended their mission, but the Genoshans soon followed them back to their base of operations. In a lengthy battle, Colossus fought against the rebel leader, the super-powered mutant named Nemesis, who intended to prove that mutants could be born into the world instead of being created. Colossus noticed a comatose young girl nearby, and when he attempted to take her back, he was himself caught in an electric storm. Nekra, the Genoshan mutant, and Nemesis, who was trying to escape from Piotr's psychic attack, made a beeline for the child while Colossus was left weakened. Colossus quickly recognized the girl as Illyana, and they safely carried her to Xavier's mansion, where Piotr, Jean, and the others were taken care of by Magneto and Nightcrawler. The X-Men then received a call from Senator Kelly that his daughter, from the State of Texas, had been kidnapped as well. This time, however, her captors were mutant-hunters working for William Stryker. Cyclops, Storm, and the rest of the X-Men went off to rescue Illyana. They quickly located her, but found that Stryker had also captured them as well. A mind-controlled Colossus charged Stryker's forces while Jean telepathically told all X-Men to take cover, as Wolverine and Rogue fought Wolverine's nemesis, Sabretooth. Piotr used a force-field to protect the teenage mutants, Cyclops, and Rogue as they tried to hold the line. The team eventually defeated Sabretooth, but not before he killed Rogue. When Cyclops reunited with his daughter, Colossus told her of the danger, after which he went back out to continue the fight against Stryker's forces.
