I've always liked how marvel did alternate realities (the Marvel Multiverse). I like seeing familiar heroes with small or big changes. So I decided to write an alternate reality of my own. Earth - 585!

This is the third part of the series:
X-Men Origins: Bobby Drake (Iceman):
Robert "Bobby" Drake was born in San-Francisco, California. He has a younger brother named Louis Drake, who is two years younger. When he was thirteen his family moved to Long Island, New York. Bobby and Louis started at a new school in New York, and being the new kids were often bullied. One day Bobby saw his younger brother being bullied by the biggest kid in the school. He tried to help his little brother but was no match against the bully. Bobby Started getting mad, but instead of getting red with rage he felt cold and his face turned blue. Then as if by instinct he froze the bully in a thin layer of ice. The bully broke the ice and ran off scared and shivering with cold.
Bobby quickly learned to control his powers. At first he used them so scare off bullies, but soon he started threatening other kids at his school to get what he wants. He became a bully himself.
When Max Eisenhardt (Magneto) came to meet Bobby and ask him to join his school in order learn to control and use his powers, Mr. and Mrs. Drake agreed. They saw what their son was becoming and thought that this school will help. Bobby, on the other hand refused. He had already changed schools once and did not want to go through that again. Louis, who was listening to the argument, confronted his brother. He told Bobby that at first he used his powers against bullies, but now he used them to become one. Bobby was convinced.
(Max chose Bobby because of the fact that his powers were a great addition to any team.)
X-Men Origins: Peter Rasputin (Colossus):
Nikolai and Alexandra Rasputin lived in a collective farm in Siberia, Russia, during the Communist era. They had a son whom they named Mikhail. Mikhail died when he was a baby. The Rasputins blamed the Soviet Union and communism for the death of their son. They decided to leave Russia and they escaped to the U.S.A. They started a farm of their own in the countryside of New York. They had a son, Peter, a little more than a year later, and a daughter, Illyana, ten years after that. Peter was raised on the Rasputin farm, and started helping from a young age.
One day, when Illyana was four years old, and Peter was fourteen, Illyana was playing in the barn when part of it suddenly collapsed, and trapped Illyana. Peter heard her scream and came to her rescue. He tried lifting the pieces of wood and metal that trapped her, at first they were too heavy, but he wouldn't give up, he had to save his sister. At that point his mutant power developed and he turned into metal, and lifted the wood and metal with ease. When he picked up his sister she stopped crying and said "shiny!"
Peter didn't have to worry about hiding his powers because the farm was isolated, so he used them freely to help around the farm. Until one day two years later when he went into town to buy supplies, and the store he was shopping at was robbed. He used his powers to stop the robbers, but instead of gratitude the people around just feared and hated him because he was a mutant. Peter ran back to the farm.
Max Eisenhardt (Magneto) heard of this event and used his electromagnetic powers to find Peter at his farm. Max offered Peter to join his school, at first Peter didn't want to leave the farm and his sister, but his parents wanted him to get a good education. Peter who also loved the feeling of saving people and doing good decided to join Max.
(Max chose Peter because of his selfless act in the store, and because of how his powers can increase Peter's.)
