Iceman V1: Thawing Out
(W) Sina Grace (A) Allesandro Vitti (CA) Kevin Wada
Bobby Drake has been in the super-hero game longer than most – but what is he known for besides a few good one-liners and a string of failed relationships? The time is now or never for Bobby to build a life and legacy he can be proud of – and become the best Iceman he can be!
But whether seeking ex-girlfriend Kitty Pryde’s advice on meeting guys or delivering his latest news to his parents, it won’t be easy – and that’s before a gang of revenge-seeking Purifiers comes calling! Still learning to be comfortable in his own skin, Bobby will meet someone who’s perhaps too comfortable in his: the Son of Wolverine himself, Daken! But when the moment of truth arrives, which is worse for Iceman: facing his parents – or the Juggernaut?

Notes for a Good LBGTQ+ and Allies Meet-Up
Confidentiality! Our discussions will get into sensitive topics and personal stories will be shared, so the Vegas Rule is in effect: No sharing of personal details outside of this group. It’s OK to use general and vague references, but not specific names, etc.
Find the Positive It may take some work, but purposefully finding a positive or constructive way to approach a difficulty is essential to growth. We’ll help each other.
Ouch/Oops If something hurtful is said, saying “Ouch,” can let that be known. “Oops”
acknowledges the error and opens the way for considerate correction.
You Speak for Yourself We all belong to many groups but we are not their sole representatives. One may share their own experiences but they do not speak for an entire community.
Don’t Yuck Their Yum Everybody’s different, so we don’t pass judgement. We’re all adults, ok?
Ask for Direction, Not an Explanation It’s not the job of the oppressed to educate the oppressor. Before you ask a question that can be answered by a websearch, consider if you’re asking the best question.
Yield the Floor Folks who speak more freely must actively let others have a turn.
