    Origin

    Colossus flees
    Colossus flees

    Colossus is an alien sent to Earth to bring back a human specimen for study. The aim of his race was to determine from the specimen whether humans are weak and conquerable. His space ship lands atop a mountain peak in the Bora-Buru region of Africa. Although the peak is too steep for him to climb down, the natives nonetheless fear him due to his gigantic size and obey his commands. However when he demands a human sacrifice, The Avengers are called in.

    Giant Man and The Wasp answer the call after being notified by Captain America and as soon as they arrive, a fight ensues. Although Colossus managed to overwhelm Giant Man a number of times, he was eventually tricked into believing Earthlings are enchanted and too dangerous to conquer. Thus he flees in his space ship and Earth is no longer under threat from his planet.
