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.
