Iceman Gets Frosty with Marvel 80th Anniversary Funko Pop [Review]

Iceman Gets Frosty with Marvel 80th Anniversary Funko Pop [Review]

Iceman is one of the five original members of the X-Men. I was oddly surprised that when Funko originally announced the 80th Anniversary Pops and Iceman wasn’t on the X-Men release. However, Iceman did make his appearance with the announcements of the 1st appearance figures for Wolverine and Deadpool (coming soon). This Funko was an […]

As has been documented in various Bleeding Cool articles throughout the course of the book’s two series, one of my personal favorite X-Men comics of the past few years was Iceman, written by Sina Grace, and drawn it its first volume by Alessandro Vitti and Robert Gill and in its second and concluding one-shot by […]

An Epilogue for Iceman [X-ual Healing 3/13/19]

We’re late! Normally we publish this recap of all of the previous week’s X-Books on Sunday, but thanks to Emerald City Comic Con, we had to delay it a day. Which, honestly, just makes for a more authentic comic book experience. Let’s get right to the recaps… Sworn to sell comics for Marvel executives who […]

Mutants as a Metaphor for Immigration? Uncanny X-Men: Winter’s End #1

We’re all used to seeing the X-Men comics used to metaphorically address a lot of real-world issues. Mutants as a metaphor for racism. Mutants as a metaphor for homophobia. But in Uncanny X-Men: Winter’s End, mutants become a metaphor for… immigrants experiencing xenophobia? Well, of all the phobias, this one at least does start with […]


Honesty is the Best Policy in Next Week’s Iceman Finale

Iceman’s character journey since his younger self was outed as gay has been one of self-exploration, figuring out who he is as both a person and a superhero. That kind of introspection not only makes us hope that Marvel plans on adding more Iceman series after Age of X, but it also gives Iceman the […]

No intro this week, folks. Marvel decided they needed to publish seven X-Men comics the week before Christmas and this thing is already pushing 3,000 words, so let’s get right to the recaps. Sworn to sell comics for Marvel executives who feared and hated the fact that Fox owned their movie rights, The Uncanny X-Men suffered great […]

Somebody Needs a Snickers in Next Week’s Iceman #4

Iceman has been trying hard to prove to the Morlocks and their leader Madin that the X-Men really do care about them, despite the fact that they’re mostly hideously mutated and live in the sewers. But no matter how hard he tries, he just can’t seem to do anything right. Last issue, Iceman located Madin’s […]

Everything You Knew About Iceman Coming Out Was Wrong?

All day long, Marvel has been releasing teaser after teaser threatening to rewrite the history of the Marvel Universe in March 2019, creating a veritable feeding frenzy in the clickbait comics media as websites scramble to post the latest teaser and get the clicks before their competitors, which of course works out in Marvel favor […]

Spider-Man Discusses His Thing for Redheads in Next Week’s Iceman #3

Iceman only has 5 issues of its revival to pack in as much story as possible, which has resulted in a refreshing concept for a mini-series: one-and-done stories in each issue tying into a larger narrative. More comics like that, please, Marvel! In any case, Iceman #3 is advertised as a team-up of Spider-Man and […]


A Mutant Pride Parade for the Marvel Universe? Coming in Iceman #4

Few things have made us happier in 2018 than the return of Iceman’s solo series due to killer TPB sales.

That’s right, Iceman #4 […]
