â€œI’ve stood side by side with the toughest, most powerful heroes in the known universe and always held my own. But today… today I need to be something more.â€
Today, Marvel Comics is excited to announce that, coming in 2017, led by creators Sina Grace (All-New X-Men) and Alessandro Vitti (Secret Warriors, Avengers Arena), Marvel Comicsâ€™ ICEMAN, will take adult Bobby Drake on a brand new mission to prove himself as one of the most powerful Super Heroes in all of the Marvel Universe and stop any opposition cold in its tracks.
After thecataclysmic fallout of Inhumans vs. X-Men comes the highly anticipated new title featuring Marvelâ€™s coldest crusader â€“ ICEMAN! Launching next year, fans will embark on an all-new quest following one of the most iconic X-Men of all time, but this new solo adventure is not going to be as easy as going down the bunny slope.
Speaking with Nerdist, series editor, Daniel Ketchum said, â€œIceman has never had a solo ongoing series before and weâ€™re going to make sure we use every page to its fullest. [He wants] to be known as more than just â€˜that X-Man who tells jokes.â€™ When Icemanâ€™s not bringing up the next generation of X-Men at the Xavier School, heâ€™ll be spanning the globe, icing himself up and taking down the biggest, baddest villains the Marvel U has to offer.â€
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 Drakeâ€™s personal life is going to help continue evolving him into one of Marvelâ€™s best Super Heroes as Grace explained to Nerdist, â€œWith this series, youâ€™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.â€
In 2017, prepare for Marvel Comicsâ€™ ICEMAN to unleash unlimited elemental potential as a brand new era begins for one of the most iconic X-Men in all time and itâ€™s all part of Marvelâ€™s ResurrXion!
