20 Badass Comic Book Heroes that are Cool on Purpose - #20

I do a lot of lists here on Cool on Purpose but I thought this list in particular deserved a little explanation.  Every guy's definition of 'The Best' may differ, but every guy's definition of 'Badass' does not.  Here's my list of "20 Badass Comic Book Heroes that are Cool on Purpose" starting with #20.

Colossus badass comic book hero

Colossus - born Piotr "Peter" Rasputin.

First off, Colossus is Russian.  I don't know much about Russians other than the fact that they're all scary, 1/10th of them are ex-KGB, and they've all probably been drinking vodka since birth.  If Colossus wasn't drinking in the womb, he definitely started after the deaths of everyone in his family. 
Even his true love Kitty Pride died.  He's already 6'6 in a regular state, but when transformed, gets a foot taller and doubles in weight.  He can turn his entire body into a form of 'organic steel' which means he literally has balls of steel!  He also happens to be the strongest of all the X-men.  I saw him throw a tank once.  He'd probably be stronger but he probably uses 35% of his strength just toting around those giant steel balls.  Let that sink in for a moment.  If that's not badass enough, consider the fact that in an armored state, Colossus doesn't need food, water or oxygen and he's a descendant of fucking Rasputin.  Yes, that fucking Rasputin.

See ya Space Cowboys...
