Colossus and Red Tornado




I have been pleasantly surprised by how well Colossus has been handled in the Deadpool movies.  He looks just about perfect, as if he stepped right off of the comics page, just like Deadpool himself. The main thing I had been worried about was his portrayal, I didn't want the character there just to be mocked by the star of the movies.  While he is there in service to the mostly comedic scripts, he is never the butt of the jokes and has kept his dignity intact.  I wish I could say the same for The Juggernaut, who's been treated as a joke in two different films now.

Regarding Bea R.'s offer "In Security"'s Sailor Sedine chibi for the comic strip's 2nd anniversary and Sailor Scout artwork of Sedine, Ellie (as "Al"?), and Charlene, maybe she could depicyt the female trio as Gen4 "my Little Pony" characters (as Rarity, Fluttershy, and Applejack, respectively) and Equestria Girls!

How long is Reddy's arm? Colossus is pretty tall, and I wouldn't have thought the Red Tornado was any taller than him. Yet he is able to hoist Piotr far off the floor here. Given that we can see his right elbow and his hand -- I guess he can extend his forearm?

Regarding today's (more immediately relevant) subject: my favorite movie-version of Colossus remains the one who kicked all that black ops commando butt in "X-2!"

Re: today's cover? I wonder if Reddy is doing this as some kind of community service in compensation for whatever crime(s) Roboforce #1 were brainwashed into committing.*

*See STF #2450

@Cary Comic: methinks that crime was the anti-mutant purge mentioned on the "cover" of STF #2441. If so, that would make today's cover the third chapter of an instant classic trilogy! At least, if this were a real-world crossover mini-series.

Yeah! But, nowhere near the cosmic epic Greendevil and Iron Beetle would've been.

Two of my favorite characters.

I just thought, you could create a new team comprising Red Tornado, Red Wolf, Red Star, Red Hulk, Red Hood, and Red Ronin. REDS.

@Matthew B: And they could be pitted against a renegade group of high-flying, armor-suited Russians in a story entitled...

"Rocket Reds' Glare!"
