The Marvel character we all know as Iceman is getting a male love interest in the comic All-New X-Men #13, which just hit stores. Iceman, the alias for Bobby Drake, came out last year as gay in the beloved super hero series. And now is the right time for the storyline to progress and develop a romantic relationship for our hero.
In the new issue, by Dennis Hopeless, Mark Bagley, Andrew Hennesey, and Nolan Woodard, Iceman goes out to a bar with Oya and Genesis only to discover that they have stumbled upon a gay bar.
Iceman is sketchy and uncomfortable and tries escaping the bar scene only to find himself unintentionally icing. However, on his way out, he runs into a man named Romeo and sparks fly.
Unfortunately, their love story is interrupted by a monster, and Drake soon discovers that Romeo is an Inhuman (similar to a mutant but not a mutant). But although the two are torn apart, in the end, Iceman gets Romeo’s digits.
What an exciting story line! We can’t wait to see what happens next!
