Hellfire Gala Colossus Thirst Is As Strong As the Steel-Bodied Russian Mutant Himself.
A perfectly sculpted beard. A piercing gaze, a black feathered cloak that is somehow ultra-masculine. A deep V so deep that it needs to connect to a collar to stay up. And finally, abs of steel. No, literally, Peter Rasputin has abs of steel. But all of these aspects put together made Hellfire Gala Colossus such a powerful thirst trap, he was trending on Twitter yesterday. From the simple “Damn” to people offering to marry the fictional character, everyone, for a day, was Colossusexual.
For the Hellfire Gala, Colossus Showed His Fabulous Side

When artist Lucas Werneck designed the Hellfire Gala costume for Colossus, did he know that he created the biggest superhero thirst trap ever seen? Regardless, fans were fast to freak out over the new look. So, here are just some of the replies:
the X-Men didn't have to upgrade Colossus from "himbo" to "daddy" but they did that, they did that for all you thirsty freaks. there's so much beauty in the world

The Colossus Goth Pimp era has begun.
Colossus walked into a Russian Hot Topic & asked for all the Vampire Slut gear they had.
Colossus said I want a V cut so deep conservatives look at me with more disdain than when they found out I was a communist.

Colossus’ look has a LOT of drip, apparently.

Sadly, some people are just not ready for the Colossus Hellfire Gala thirst trap.

This is just… Dumb. Trying WAY to hard and looks like fanfic.
The whole thing is invalidated by Collosus' outfit alone. It's laughably stupid AND shows a fundamental lack of understanding of the character.
I'm sure someone worked hard and the draftsmanship is solid, but… No.
