Iceman #8 wasn’t the worst plot idea ever, it was just so terribly predictable and forced. It’s crystal clear that the writer has a personal agenda and narrative he insists on telling that betrays the character of Iceman, LGBT readers, and fans in general; it’s further clear that he has no interest in changing course either. Iceman is portrayed so inconsistently issue-to-issue (and in none of the incarnations is he portrayed well), and now other characters like Daken and Young Bobby are being taken down too. In one issue, Iceman doesn’t understand what “Netflix and chill” means, but somehow here he’s giving relationship advice to his younger self? Which is it? Does he have his shit together or not? And don’t get me started in the utterly inhuman dialogue. Just no. No, no, no, no, no.
