SKU: 13215 Category:


The Fastball Special is a maneuver in which Colossus launches Wolverine at an enemy, claws-first. The Fastball Special was perfected and is most commonly used by Colossus and Wolverine of the X-men. It involves Colossus hurling his teammate at a foe. The attack allows Wolverine to reach speeds much faster than he ever could on his own, causing him to do much more damage. It also allows him get to areas that he couldn’t before, such as extreme heights or distances. In the move, Colossus holds Wolverine in his hands and throws him with as much force as he can muster. Sometimes the throw is like a javelin and other times it looks like a baseball pitch, but the result is the same. The size difference between the two heroes involved makes this move easier than when it is tried with others. Colossus is very big so a small Wolverine fits right in his hand. A vaguely “Days of Future Past” scenario is used for a Danger Room session in the film X-Men: The Last Stand where Wolverine is thrown by Colossus as into a Sentinel using the Fastball Special.
