The Colossus possesses superhuman strength (Class 25) and is a reasonably skilled combatant and starship pilot, but is highly superstitious.
The Colossus was a scout for the extraterrestrial Vegans, and first appeared on Earth in the Bora-Buru region of Africa, standing atop a towering peak above a valley filled with villagers. The peak was too steep for him to descend into the valley, but he terrified the villagers, and demanded that they bring him a human sacrifice. Hearing of this, Cpatain America alerted his fellow Avengers Giant-Man and the Wasp. The duo flew to the Colossus, who struck their jet out of the sky, forcing them to bail out. They faced the Colossus atop his peak, but the Colossus had the advantage over Giant-Man, who at that time normally grew to 15 feet. Giant-Man taxed his limits to become 30 feet, but the Colossus was still stronger. The Wasp managed to knock the Colossus off balance, and Giant-Man shrunk himself to ant-size to escape. The Colossus was astonished, fearful that Giant-Man had vanished into thin air. Frightened by what he had seen on Earth, the Colossus fled in his flying saucer, warning his fellow Vegans to keep away from Earth.
Also known as Agent 7M to his fellow Vegans.
