Quote:Now some of you will instantly judge my following statement as homophobic and feel free to do so. But I was fine when the young alternate universe Ice-Man was revealed to be gay. I would have happily collected a NorthStar book, as he is one of my favorite Alpha Flight characters. And I'd have been thrilled to see Anole get more time in the spotlight. However, I am totally against 616 Ice-Man being changed into a gay character. He was my one of my favorite characters until he was changed into being gay for shock value, despite decades of being depicted as straight. I hate when a character's history is totally ignored just to suit a writer's whim. I am thrilled the book is being canceled.
I was ignoring the book so I'm indifferent to it being cancelled. I'll say this: it's commonplace for a young gay male to think he's heterosexual when puberty starts. He'll date girls and often be successful at it. But eventually he'll realize his true orientation. That's how Bobby was depicted. (It's important to remember that he was the youngest of Xavier's first team.)
