Starting Irssi in screen on boot?

So I have set up my computer to start irssi in screen as a user on boot. The only problem is that from this screen session there are no colors. The force colors option does not look good either, so that's not a option. I'm using the line:

su axe -c "screen -d -m irssi"

In order to start it. The terminal is always set to plain "tty" though. If I run screen as the user, it is perfectly fine, and the terminal will be set to "xterm" (it's complete console though). If I run it as root though, it's always "tty" even if I try something like:

su axe -c "screen -T xterm -d -m irssi"

su - axe -c "screen -T linux -d -m irssi"

Also doesn't work. I'm using Screen version 4.00.02 (FAU) 5-Dec-03, and su (GNU coreutils) 5.95. Everything I've tried doesn't work, and nothing I find on google works for me.
