In this episode of Comic-Movie 10, the Kane brothers discuss the fight scene between Colossus and Juggernaut, found in the latest Deadpool movie. They also give insight into the history of these two arch rivals and explain how they have come to be the characters the world knows and loves.
Colossus, born Piotr Nikolaievitch “Peter Nicholas” Rasputin, was raised on a farm in Siberia. He became aware of his mutant powers when he rescued his sister from a tractor incident on his family’s property. After displaying his unusual strength, Professor X called on him to save the fate of the X-Men. As a result of this, Colossus became an imperative member of the X-Men team. Although he is the strongest among them, Colossus always shows how big his heart is by being a caring and empathetic character, who only fights when it is absolutely necessary.
Unlike his rival, Juggernaut has not always been so caring. Born Cain Marko, Juggernaut has always had a chip on his shoulder growing up, as his step brother Charles Xavier was given much more attention and care by his step father. While fighting alongside Charles and the rest of the American Army in Korea, Marko found himself inside of a temple, holding a ruby. This ruby had an inscription that explained he now held the power of the Juggernaut. When the temple collapsed on top of him, he was assumed dead, until he reappeared in an attempt to take down the X-Men. It is also important to understand that Juggernaut must wear his helmet, as it is the only thing protecting him from his one weakness- his brother Charles’ brain waves.
The Kane brothers then discuss the groundbreaking fight between these two characters in Dealpool 2, and how the possible Fox merger may impact all things X-Men and Avengers related. Joe and Dan mention their excitement at the possibility of a Juggernaut vs. Hulk fight in the future and question what your favorite fight would be.
