When Did Iceman Become The Big Heterosexual On Campus?

Once upon a time, X-Men readers were convinced that Bobby Drake, Iceman, could be gay. It was a big thing. Even Family Guy got in on the act. Occasionally the writers played up to it…


But since the movies showed Bobby and Kitty Pryde having a thing for each other, that got carried over to the comics in All New X-Men.

But in today's Amazing X-Men? He's having to beat the women off with an icey stick.


Firstly Warbird, moving in on Kitty Pryde with actions that, if the genders were reversed, would have the internet up in a storm.


And then there's Firestar. You know that they dated for almost a week once? They know. They know. IMG_0016

And so does Warbird. Seriously, what do women see under that thick layer of ice? Maybe he just has that metrosexual appeal…
