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.
