It was amazing news when we found out by Marvel that Bobby Drake aka Iceman is about to get his own comic series. For a lot of fans that comes of no surprise since Iceman is more than just another mutant.
Iceman participated as an X-man, founding member of the Champions, an X-factorian, a Defender and discovered to be an Omega-level mutant but even though all over those years we saw him fight along the greatest names of Marvel and always stood his ground, it seems that there was always something missing from the equation. Boddy Drake seems to have a lot of potential still and a lot of achievements to unlock.
Sina Grace (All-New X-Men Annual, Self-Obsessed) has been a long time Iceman fan
“Iceman has one of the most tenured legacies as a Marvel Super Hero and was one of the originators of the modern Marvel Universe,” said series writer Sina Grace. “As a lifelong X-Men fan (I’ve got the dog-eared floppies to prove it!), writing Iceman has been the greatest and most challenging project I’ve been lucky enough to work on. Writing this series has been like making best friends with someone who’s been in my class for years, but I never took the time to ask how they were doing. Turns out, Bobby Drake has a LOT to say paired with a LOT of achievements he’s still looking to unlock.”
Marvel also reveals that there is a younger Iceman popping up from the timestream. An Iceman which is already a world class hero, comfortable with his skin and in a relationship with a handsome Inhuman so in all exactly what our Bobby Drake with he was.
This new on-going series is going to be the “second” chance of Iceman to do everything that he ever wanted to do and we can’t wait to see him give his best shot at it.
