Iceman goes to a gay bar in the latest X-Men issue

Iceman could be getting a boyfriend in X-Men comics

Will a same-sex romance come to bridge the gap between two warring factions of the X-Men universe?

Iceman, aka Bobby Drake, looks like he could be getting his first boyfriend after coming out as gay last year.

Joining teammates Oya and Genesis to a gay bar in the new issue of All-New X-Men 13, Drake screws up at first when he ices up and runners the bar out of shame.

Writer Dennis Hopeless is setting up a Shakespearean romance with star-crossed lovers from the two warring houses of mutants and Inhumans, like Romeo and Juliet, according to iO9.

Let’s hope it doesn’t turn out exactly like Romeo and Juliet.
