The mutant ice manipulator’s comic series was canceled by Marvel during its last run of 2017-2018 for supposed low sales. But that didn’t stop the superhero comic from almost immediately getting a renewed series in the same year.
Part of the founding members of the X-Men mutant saga, the superhero Iceman made his first appearance in the comic franchise in September of 1963. But it wasn’t until April of 2015 that the mutant teenager was revealed to be gay by his telepathic teammate Jean Grey.
The revelation stirred up some confusion with avid readers of the comic because the grown Iceman was known to have dated women. But we can chalk that up to not meaning much in the gay world as we are all too aware of what it means to hide one’s true lifestyle as an LGBT individual — whether that was the case with Iceman or if it was just an added switch to the character’s identity, we don’t know.
What we do know is that Iceman went on to receive a solo series in 2017 that chronicled his life as an adult. While avenging mutants and warding off bad guys the superhero solo adventures also conveyed his coming out experience following the life of his public persona Bobby Drake.
Drake’s revitalized series written again by the former Iceman gay writer Sina Grace will dive right into the superhero’s courageous disposition as he hunts down the evil-doers who are attacking Morlocks — it’s on Iceman’s shoulders to stop yet another massacre of mutants before it’s too late.
And who knows, there might be some hot gay action in the new series like that of the previous one when Iceman had his first gay one-nighter with Pyro!
Iceman #1: HE’S BACK! Iceman is back! Which is good, because someone is hunting the Morlocks for sport. Now it’s up to Bobby Drake to prevent another potential Mutant Massacre. But who’s behind this horrific hunt? You won’t believe it if we tell you! Guest-starring Bishop!
