As I try to do most years at this time, in an Iceman appreciation thread somewhere...
 I wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
From me...
...and Iceman
...and the Champions!

I know, I'm late getting the Halloween theme up this year. Struggling to get much of anything done that is internet related the past couple of months. I might go into the why of that at some point, I might not...

Read it. I liked it, especially the flashback part of the story set in the Silver Age of comics. Slott does a good job of making Johnny and Bobby both funny and not stupid, which is appreciated. Easily the most enjoyable Iceman thing I have read in YEARS, which either means this is really good or everything else was really bad. :|

Point of controversy: When Bobby de-ices in the present he has blonde hair, continuing the hair-color controversy that has consumed fans since Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends... :P

Love it. Reminds me of Joe Madureira's Iceman.

I moved the posts about Iceman appearing in the upcoming Fantastic Four #24 as a member of that team to its own thread located here. Fantastic Four #24 is due out next week.
by Icefanatic
So I moved the above posts out of the Appreciation thread into a new thread specific to the topic...

Here's some more details and a bit of a preview:


After a hologram call from mom by the bottom half of the page Franklin is shooting through New York's Washington Square Park on his way to the FF's unassuming 4 Yancy St. headquarters with Iceman.

Yeah, Iceman.

Turns out he and the FF got history.

"Hey, remember that time Iceman replaced the Human Torch as a member of the Fantastic Four? No?" Marvel's official solicitation copy asks. "Well, Johnny Storm sure remembers! And now it's time to let everybody else in on the secret of the Fantastic Four story we were never supposed to talk about!"

The story 'Cold Snap' may or may not be a direct prologue to October's Fantastic Four #25 by Slott and new series artist R.B. Silva which promises "New villains! New uniforms! And a new, major, permanent status quo change for Marvel's First Family," or in totality "a new era for the Fantastic Four!"

The one thing FF #25 doesn't promise is a line-up change, but they're pretty much standard issue for big status quo-altering stories these days, so we'll see if Bobby Drake's secret FF history has a longer tail than just September's issue and Franklin's association with the X-Men dives deeper than it has in the past.
