-16

During the last fight in Deadpool (2016), Colossus covered his face with his hand when Angel Dust's top came down showing her ahem "assets".

Why did he cover his face - is he asexual in nature?

    Allowing someone some modesty does not in any way imply that they're asexual. – phantom42 May 16 '16 at 12:14

    Why would averting your eyes be in any way relevant to asexuality? If anything, asexual people would reasonably be expected to be less likely to avert their eyes than ‘normalsexual’ (is there a word for the opposite of ace?) people. – Janus Bahs Jacquet May 16 '16 at 19:14

    @Lexible No, not hypersexual. Just anyone who's not asexual (the vast majority falling within the normal range of libido and level of sexual desire). – Janus Bahs Jacquet May 16 '16 at 20:02

    @Lexible Yup, basically. ‘Sexual people’ just conjures up slightly different connotations. – Janus Bahs Jacquet May 16 '16 at 20:09

    @Lexible I believe that, because of the preexisting connotations of the adjective "sexual", the preferred terms for human sexualities that are not asexual are allosexual or verisexual, depending on how much one cares about etymology (in terms of composition, the former would be closer to either "heterosexual" or the opposite of "autosexual" rather than not-asexual, but it remains considerably more popular than the latter). – Darael May 17 '16 at 13:27

Because Colossus is a proper gentleman, and that's what proper gentlemen do when a woman has a wardrobe malfunction.

His character throughout the entire movie was that of a well-behaved, civilized, mature individual in direct contrast to crass and violent Deadpool. He was also attempting to be a good role model for Negasonic Teenage Warhead. It would have been entirely out of character for him to ogle a woman who found herself topless through no fault of her own.

To directly answer your question, though, no, Colossus is not asexual. In the comics he is in a relationship with Kitty Pryde. They haven't touched on this in the movies yet but there's no indication that his movie character is any different.
