Over the course of his life, Bobby Drake, a.k.a. Iceman, has taken on and beaten the worst enemies the world -- and the universe -- can throw at him.But is the most dangerous villain yet to come? And could it be none other than...Bobby himself?
As usual with Marvel lately, I'm dying to see how this one turns out and am happy with the choice in expanding upon Bobby's inner character. He's such a long standing X-Men that it's so strange we've never had a huge focus on him until now. At least not in quite awhile. Read Full Review
I never realized that Iceman has rarely been the center of attention in X-Men stories. As a character that has been around since the beginning of the team, it feels like writers never really fleshed him out. Marjorie Liu's take and the situation she's created is great in really showing us that there is a layer to his character we haven't really noticed before. As things progressively get worse, you start to feel uneasy as you become concerned with the fate of different characters. Liu never ceases to amaze with the way she delves into the different characters and it's always refreshing to see what she comes up with next. Read Full Review

Liu and Walta's story is going in a good direction, and as long as issues like this keep showing up, I'll keep reading. Read Full Review
