Bobby Drake's parents always wanted their son to stay in the closet. Regarding his powers, that is.
So much so that, originally, Professor Xavier had to wipe their memories that their son was a mutant, and the X-Men Iceman.
Of course, that sort of telepathic invasion is frowned upon these days. Eventually they got to know about their son again. And in tomorrow's Iceman #5 comic book by Sina Grace, Alessandro Vitti and Rachel Rosenberg, he tells his parents about the news that he is accepting of himself as a gay man. While standing next to his most recent girlfriend.
Damn. What if he tells them that there's a young time-travelled version of their son also hanging around and he's just as gay? Where's a Professor Xavier when you need one? Oh yes, Cyclops killed him. Damn. Looks like Iceman may have to try and change his parents' minds a different way…
Iceman #5 is published by Marvel Comics tomorrow.
