Veteran athletes can sometimes get frustrated when a new recruit gets the better of them, and it seems its the same in the superhero world. Though to be fair, it's not like athletes have to worry about their younger selves showing up from the past.
That is the case though for Iceman, who is still trying to deal with the fact that the Bobby Drake from the original X-Men is in the present. That would be awkward enough, but from all angles, he seems to have a better grasp on things than the original. Writer Sina Grace is looking forward to tackling that and more in his new ongoing series.
"Iceman has one of the most tenured legacies as a Marvel Super Hero and was one of the originators of the modern Marvel Universe. As a lifelong X-Men fan (I've got the dog-eared floppies to prove it!), writing Iceman has been the greatest and most challenging project I've been lucky enough to work on. Writing this series has been like making best friends with someone who's been in my class for years, but I never took the time to ask how they were doing. Turns out, Bobby Drake has a LOT to say paired with a LOT of achievements he’s still looking to unlock."

Bobby Drake has been in the super hero game longer than most. But while reflecting on what he's accomplished over the years, he realizes that the legacy he's built is a few good one-liners and a string of failed relationships. Not only that, but now a younger version of himself has emerged from the timestream and he's more put together than Bobby ever was: already a world-class hero in his own right, but also totally comfortable in his own skin, complete with a relationship with a handsome Inhuman to boot. In this new ongoing series penned by Sina Grace (Burn the Orphanage, Self-Obsessed) and drawn by Alessandro Vitti (SECRET WARRIORS), Bobby realizes that the time is never or now, and sets out to build a life and legacy he can be proud of…and be the best ICEMAN he can be!
