Marvel Gives Gay Superhero Iceman His Own Comic

Recently, Marvel outed an alternate version of Bobby Drake, aka Iceman, when Jean Grey revealed to everyone he was gay using her mind-powers (proving Jean Grey really is a bitch).

When he confronts the current version of Iceman, he finds out that Iceman has been a closeted gay in the 1980s.

It has been a year since both Icemen were confirmed to be gay, and now Marvel may finally be continuing on the story. This will be his first ongoing comic series in years, despite him being part of the X-Men since he first debuted in 1963. He’s only had two self-titled mini-series, one in 1984 and another in the 2000s.

Marvel had announced several RessurXion-branded comics after the dust had settled. X-23 aka Laura Kinney, Wildchild, and Deadpool. The series will be released in Spring 2017, under the RessurXion in the wake of X-Men vs. Inhumans. This will be a huge step in Marvel adding more visibility to LGBT representation in their series.
