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 agree. Every time someone talks about Iceman being gay they really sound like adults on Peanuts, speaking loads of BS, to me.

Frankly, I still think Jeen mind controlled everybody because she's sick of guys fawning over her.

Not that this cancellation is going to change things.
