The Amazing Colossal Man!
I confess that I was never a big X-Men fan as a kid. I had a bunch of Classic X-Men which reprinted old stories...but those I bought because the covers were drawn by Art Adams and Todd McFarlane (I was a big fan of Todd and I won't apologize for that). But, and I'm sure the reasons are obvious, I was a big fan of Colossus.
In the comments section here me and some of the guys were discussing Colossus at his best. I think it was agreed that a certain issue of Uncanny X-Men drawn by Rick Leonardi brought to us the hottest Colossus in his best costume to date!
This drawing of Colossus I did because of that issue...Andrew, it's not the drawing I've got for you. A proper pin-up should have the character facing you, at the very least. So another one is in the works.
For more Colossus reading check out Marvel Comics Presents numbers 10 through 17 which has a story drawn by Rick Leonardi. In '97 Marvel put out a one shot starring Colossus and Meggan, of Excalibur, which was drawn by Bryan Hitch. And the issue of Uncanny X-Men is #231!
