(X-Men Unlimited II#14/2 - BTS) - Milos a young painter with strong opinions was part of an art class attended by Piotr Rasputin, the famous X-Man Colossus.
(X-Men Unlimited II#14/2 (fb) - BTS) - The class instructor asked his students to submit a piece to a gallery showcase.
(X-Men Unlimited II#14/2) - During another model drawing class, Milos noticed Piotr was stuck in a creative rut. He and two off his classmates took a closer look at the X-Man's drawing and concluded it was nothing more than a clichéd Hallmark sentimentality. Milos turned to Piotr and explained he found his work technically wonderful but that being an artist took more than the ability to draw a pretty picture. He urged Piotr to challenge himself. Milos' words hit home, causing Piotr to recall the torment he'd experienced not only on the bleak landscape of Ust-Ordynsky but during his time in "beautiful America". After visiting a museum, Piotr concluded his life was like a sarcophagi, beautiful on the outside concealing the hideous truth within, masking suffering in a beautiful facade.
(X-Men Unlimited II#14/2) - Milos attended the class' gallery showcase where he was immediately disappointed by Piotr's submission: a massive, beautifully tragic work. Unaware he was venting his frustrations to Cyclops, Wolverine and Kitty Pryde, he turned to them to explain this was another one of Piotr's "Hallmark attempts at angst and torment". The X-Men wasted no time setting the snotty student straight, after which he stormed off, leaving them to enjoy their teammate's work.
