Isn't Colossus Immune To Magic?

I'm talking about Colossus without cytorrak.

Well, maybe I'm wrong but I think I've read something before that he is immune to magic. Is he? Posting scans would be helpful. : )

He's not immune to magic, but he's pretty resistant to most forms of energy which include magic. I don't have scans, but I think he tanked magic attacks in Limbo and elsewhere. It's a weird side effect of his mutation. He isn't composed of an earthly metal. So I guess most energy interacts with it differently.

He isn't composed of earthly metal? really?

Or perhaps Magik gave him some resistance.

Or maybe, he's just a bit invulnerable to magic attacks.

so no scans for me to see? please show. i wanna see it with my own eyes.

When the New Mutants went to Limbo Belasco pointed out that people with transitional forms are more resistant to magic. Dust and Mercury since they aren't organic were able to resist the effects of magic. Metal has also been known to disrupt magic, Colossus' metal body, Wolverine's claws and the like. I wouldn't say invulnerable but resistant sounds about right.

I'm not entirely sure what you want me to show. I don't have a scan on hand, or at least I don't think, of him tanking any magical attacks. Although I can tell you that his mutant ability exchanges his carbon atoms for a metal in another dimension. It's psionic or something or other. It's why he's more resistant to mental attacks than others.

@Rickbarry: Perhaps PrinceIMC's answer is more accurate?

@Rickbarry: I just want to let you know that I'm not rejecting your answer ok? But it's really ok if you don't have scans. Maybe somebody else can provide. I can wait. : )

He pretty much said the same thing I did.

Well currently, he is the Juggernaut so he is pretty much immune to everything if he wants to be outside of psychics.
