Finally, Iceman is getting his gay kiss after a long and somewhat frustrating wait. Young Iceman, aka Bobby Drake, met his current love, Romeo, in issue #13. Now in new issue #17, they finally share a kiss on the pages of the comic.
The story unfolds when the two of them are on a date and discuss their intense feelings for one another. But when there’s a speed bump, they both seem unsure of themselves and how to end the date.
But, alas, in the end, the guy gets the guy.
And Iceman not only gets the guy but he gets his own series come April. This is the first time Marvel will release a comic with a gay leading superhero. We will be very interested to see how prevalent his homosexuality is in the new series.
