Sidekicked Issue #28 –The Iceman Cometh Out

It’s been 6 months since one of Marvel’s original mutants came out of the closet. Bobby Drake is a superhero, a mutant, and a gay male. But the version of Iceman that accepted this sexual identity is a younger, time-lost version of the iconic hero. Fans wondered if the classic Bobby Drake, a character with decades of continuity, had always been gay himself or if this was another product of parallel cosmic storytelling. Uncanny X-Men #600 puts to rest all of our questions and Sidekicked discusses if Marvel handled this with class.

David is a cool human and the co-host of the Sidekicked Podcast with Vincent Powell! He hates long walks on the beach, but only because there is so much sand. He knows more about Marvel than DC. He is a feminist, regardless of the fact that he is a guy. You haven't heard of him, well he's a big deal in Latveria.

He has now been drafted by the Uncanny Pome Magazine to unleash his thoughts and views. Along with his partner, David, the two of them analyze the comic book industry for a new generation of fans.

Afternoon Snack

It’s finally getting cold in Texas and we are drinking 5 cups of tea a day (partially because of the cold and partially because it is a coping mechanism, we are allowed). In today’s Snack, we bring you something to look out for but something to celebrate as well, because that’s our coping mechanism too.
