Now that the word is out that the X-Men back in force in the Marvel Universe, the publisher has now announced it is giving Iceman his own series in 2017.
Daniel Ketchum, Iceman series editor said, “Iceman has never had a solo ongoing series before and we’re going to make sure we use every page to its fullest. [He wants] to be known as more than just ‘that X-Man who tells jokes.’ When Iceman’s not bringing up the next generation of X-Men at the Xavier School, he’ll be spanning the globe, icing himself up and taking down the biggest, baddest villains the Marvel U has to offer.”
Bringing these adventures to the comic book pages will be writer Sina Grace and artist Alessandro Vitti.
In addition to being a globetrotting exploration with one of the most powerful mutants in the Marvel Universe, ICEMAN will also be studying how Bobby Drake’s personal life is going to help continue evolving him into one of Marvel’s best Super Heroes as Grace explained to Nerdist, “With this series, you’ll see how much knowing yourself and understanding yourself helps inform the scope of your abilities, both as a human being and also as a Super Hero. We are gonna play with it to be sure, because this guy is an Omega Level mutant at the end of the day.”
X-Men Blue and X-Men Gold are scheduled to arrive in April 2017, so expect Iceman to launch around the same time.
