Peter Rasputin is a mutant with the ability to turn his entire body into a sort of organic steel, granting him tremendous strength and durability. He is a student at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters.

When William Stryker's military forces attacked the X-Mansion, Peter used his strength to help many of the younger students to escape.[2]

He became a member of the X-Men and fought alongside Storm, Wolverine, Beast, Iceman and Shadowcat when Magneto attacked Alcatraz Island to destroy the mutant 'cure'. He proved vital in the defeat of Magneto, throwing Wolverine to distract Magneto until Beast could inject Magneto with the cure.[1]

Peter would later be among the last of the mutants in the original timeline with the advent of the Sentinels Mk. X. In Moscow, the Free Mutants came under attack by 2 Sentinels, who proceeded to kill the mutants off except for Bishop and Kitty, with Peter dying when his head was crushed while in metal form from a Sentinel with denser metal than him. When Bishop and Kitty were successful in rewriting the immediate past, Peter and the slain Free Mutants were revived by timeline retcon. They then head to an abandoned monastery in China, along with the last of the X-Men, to change the past in 1973 with Wolverine, with Peter among the defenders stationed outside. Eventually, the gathered mutants clashed with the Sentinels, with Peter dying once again by being ripped in half by the waist from two Sentinels' tugging.[3]
