I like Bobby Drake. Hell, everyone likes Iceman, right?


No. Not that Iceman...
This one:


Well, this is his one-shot origin story, and it was pretty decent.
Most of the X-Men have horrible parents, so it was nice to see something different for a change. Not all of us abuse and neglect our kids, or kick them out if they are a bit different. Sure, it's always the sorry mother-fuckers who make the news, but there are a lot of us out there who slog through the years with our kids'

Mutant powers come in their own way in their own time for everyone and Bobby Drake is no exception.

X-Men Origins Iceman was interesting. Bobby was just a kid and had no idea what was happening. He shows some wisdom because he hid his powers, but he still trained with them on his own. Just in case he needed them.
Most portrayals of Iceman show him as a happy go lucky guy who rarely thinks ahead, but that wasn't the case here.

This was fun because I've always loved the X-Men and Iceman's origins

Una historia normal. Entretenida, con una introducción nudo y desenlace, pero tampoco para lanzar cohetes.

Good reading

Loved seeing Iceman beginning. Good story and drawings were great too. Never knew he was the second X-man for the series.
