Well damn. Numbers are what matters with any company and Iceman unfortunately did not have them. Iceman writer Sina Grace has posted that the Iceman solo series is coming to an end. He wrote a letter on his Facebook fanpage to let everyone know. This may seem like a small thing, as comic book titles come and go but it is quite sad to me. There are no ongoing mainstream comic book titles with a gay male superhero in the lead. This is the only one that Marvel has ever had. Northstar had a short limited series once. There have also been a few teams with LGBT representation. Wiccan and Hulkling are two of the more famous characters.


Unfortunately there has been a lot of hate for Iceman since he came out as a gay character. While true, some reviewers gave criticism on the story, many others criticized Iceman and many other Marvel titles as a “Social Justice Warrior” campaign. Some are even campaigning for Bobby to go back into the closet and become straight because they think that the teenage version of Jean Grey mind-raped teenage Bobby into being gay, and it affected his older counterpart. I doubt Marvel would go down that route, but it still is something that I have seen more than once on several other YouTube videos and on comic book forums. To add to this, the comic book – America is also on the chopping block. This is a title that has the first Latina queer character as the namesake of the series.


In the end, money is what keeps titles going, and Iceman just did not have the fan support. I do hope that Bobby Drake will be written well in the future. I’m already seeing haters rejoice making hateful and homophobic statements regarding Bobby’s character. All are saying that he should not have had a solo title and that Marvel should never ‘cater’ to a minority. Some of the homophobic comments I have read just today alone do hurt a lot. I know this is a comic book and does not matter in the scope of bigger things with life, but it is a comic book that was important to me. It was something I wanted to see since I was a kid and understood who I was.


Young Iceman and Adult Iceman team up to take on Pyro. The real battle however, takes place over dinner. Adult Bobby Drake’s parents want to meet the time displaced counter part to their son. Things do not go so well.

Whoa!!! Check this out. I am huge fan of the artwork of Rage Gear Studios, and this Iceman meets the Blue Ranger pic just made me fangasm. I’ve costumed as both of these characters too. Just saying. There are a couple people on this site and one of the artists that I have followed for some time is Rey Arzeno. He is just fantastic in all ways! This artist has made many other pieces on the Rage Gear Studios site that you should check out. I’m personally loving his Thunder League mash up.

Oh, if you didn’t know, Rey Arzeno drew my original GayComicGeek costume concept. The ORIGINAL GayComicGeek costume pictured below. Although at the time he was known as Ezra O’Neary. He’s that fracking awesome! The original piece did not have red pants…that was added later.


Holy hell, adult Bobby Drake aka Iceman, finally gets his first man on man kiss. It is totally worth the wait too! Him coming out as a gay man in his adult life is great. Also him being awkward in his interactions with other gay men is believable and such a cute story to read. This is a great title and I love how the story has progressed.

Bobby Drake aka Iceman takes on Wolverine’s bisexual son – Daken. Although it is a short fight, we do get to see some slightly sexual tension between the two as well. It’s a great issue and we see more of Iceman’s personal life start to come to the surface with a huge shocking ending.

Bobby Drake aka Iceman has come out as being a gay Omega Level Mutant. His friends and teammates know. But he has dated women in the past and none of them have been personally spoken to. Until this issue. Kitty Pryde and Bobby go on a mission to recruit a new teenager who’s mutant ability has just recently developed. But first Bobby has to endure an awkward plane ride with her to discuss their past. And I did not know that he could make his ‘Snowmen’ come alive like Queen Elsa. That’s cool!

Since Bobby Drake aka Iceman came out as being gay, there has been a lot of controversy over this decision in Marvel Comics. Personally, I think it’s a great idea to show a character that has been closeted for years to finally come out in his adult life. Of course this had to happen after his younger time displace self outed him first. But that’s another topic. This is a great first issue for this ongoing series that was written by Sina Grace and illustrated by Alessandro Vitti.
