Every Single One of Marvel's GLAAD Award-Nominated Comics Has Been Cancelled Every Single One of Marvel's GLAAD Award-Nominated Comics Has Been Cancelled

Every year, the LGBTQ+ advocacy group GLAAD recognizes and awards a selection of television shows, films, and books that feature powerful portrayals of queer people.

Iceman's Finally Tapping Into Its Potential to Tell a New Kind of Queer Coming-of-Age Story Iceman's Finally Tapping Into Its Potential to Tell a New Kind of Queer Coming-of-Age Story

For all the fuss that was made about Marvel’s Iceman series featuring the newly out Icemen (two Bobby Drakes), the book’s been a rather dull rehash of the kind of narrative beats you’d expect from so-so queer YA fiction. This week, though, the series finally did something dynamic with its characters that it should…

Marvel's Iceman Series Is Everything I Love and Hate About Coming Out Stories Marvel's Iceman Series Is Everything I Love and Hate About Coming Out Stories

It’s been interesting to watch Bobby Drake unsteadily make his way through life as a newly-out gay man in Sina Grace’s Iceman series. He’s very much the same Iceman who’s been cracking wise with the X-Men since the ’60s, and yet he’s also a vastly different Bobby who’s grappling with a new sort of emotional struggle.

How the Marvel Universe is Reacting to Iceman Coming Out How the Marvel Universe is Reacting to Iceman Coming Out

The process of coming out is one that LGBTQ people go through multiple times in their life—speaking to family, speaking to friends, speaking to co-workers, hell, speaking to complete and utter strangers, sometimes. In the world of comic books, out heroes have one other category... telling their fellow superheroes.

Which Show Is Crazier: Gotham or Legends of Tomorrow? Which Show Is Crazier: Gotham or Legends of Tomorrow?

Ciao, my cherubic change-of-address forms! So many good questions this week. How the hell did Han Solo figure out Chewbacca’s name if Chewbacca himself can’t even say it? Did Wonder Woman actually need a man to save the day? Why wasn’t Captain America: Civil War called Avengers 3? All that and still more, packed into…

Iceman's First Solo Series Is a Great Look at the Mess That Is Bobby Drake's Private Life Iceman's First Solo Series Is a Great Look at the Mess That Is Bobby Drake's Private Life

The duality of superheroes is nothing new. Stories about the tangled web of public and private personas have driven superheroes for decades. But in the first issue of Iceman—Bobby Drake’s first ever ongoing series—we get a bit of a twist to that duality: presenting Bobby’s life as a fascinating mix of success and…

Bobby Drake’s stepping up to the big leagues. After years of being a major team player across the X-Men books, Iceman will get a comic book of his own next year.

Gee, I Wonder Where Iceman's New Romance Could Be Going Gee, I Wonder Where Iceman's New Romance Could Be Going

Poor young Bobby Drake. First, he and his fellow X-Friends got sent forward in time and stuck in their own future. Then he came out, and had to struggle with why his older self had yet to do so. Now he’s found himself a cute crush, only to immediately get hit with the mother of all unsubtleties.

Wearable Liquid Nitrogen Blasters Give You X-Men Powers Without the Mutation

For some reason every superpower has to come with a downside. The X-Men, for example, are rejected from society for being mutants. But why can’t it just be win-win? It turns out it can, you just need to be a mad scientist like Colin Furze, and build your superpowers yourself.

The 5,300-year-old natural mummy dubbed Ötzi the Iceman, discovered in 1991, is still teaching us things. A multidisciplinary team of scientists at European Academy of Bozen have studied Ötzi’s gut bacteria to learn more about early human migration patterns.

Uncanny X-Men Ends With a Bang—and Finally Deals With Iceman's Sexuality Uncanny X-Men Ends With a Bang—and Finally Deals With Iceman's Sexuality

When All-New X-Men #40 released, a major topic of discussion was the fact that a younger, time-displaced Bobby Drake, a.k.a. Iceman, came out as gay. But ever since, fans have wondered if this meant the present-day Bobby was simply in the closet, or maybe not gay at all. Seven months later, we finally have the answer.

One Of The Original X-Men Has Come Out As Gay One Of The Original X-Men Has Come Out As Gay

Over the years, there’s been a steady rise of out gay superheroes in both Marvel and DC’s rosters — and now that number has grown a little larger, with the revelation in tomorrow’s All-New X-Men #40 that one of the founding members of the X-Men is gay.

This 5,300-year-old Iceman has close relatives living in the Mediterranean This 5,300-year-old Iceman has close relatives living in the Mediterranean

Everyone, meet Ötzi the Iceman. Well, this is a reconstruction of Ötzi the Iceman — you'll find photos of his mummified corpse after the jump. And while Ötzi's remains might look rather run down to you and me, the truth is that any one of us would be lucky to look as good as he does after 5,300 years. That's how long…

All this week, we've been gearing up for the conclusion of the "Dark Angel Saga" storyline in Uncanny X-Force, one of the most rollicking X-comics to date.

What if the mutants of the X-Men were truly mutated? What if the mutants of the X-Men were truly mutated?

The X-Men always complain that they're loathed by society, but they never think to stop it's because they're so damned good-looking. And barring a few select team members, the X-Men are more Olympic water polo team pin-up calendar, less genetically quirky superhero squad. But what if the comeliest of X-Men couldn't…

Scientists discover 5200-year-old iceman's final meal Scientists discover 5200-year-old iceman's final meal

Ötzi the Iceman may have died 5200 years ago in the Italian Alps, but scientists are still divining the gustatory secrets of his last minutes. Before kicking the bucket, this Copper Age fellow had chowed down on some ibex.

What Is This? What Is This?

It looks like the lastest image from a NASA spacecraft, approaching the surface of a satellite on the outskirts of the Solar System. Or maybe one from the deepest underwater exploration voyage ever.

Make The Best Spider-Man 5 You Can, Sam Raimi Make The Best Spider-Man 5 You Can, Sam Raimi

So we're already getting very heavy hints that the recently-announced Spider-Man 4 will center around the long-teased-to-the-point-of-not-caring "Curt Connors Becomes The Lizard" storyline that easter eggs in the first three movies have been slowly building to, but that's not why we're excited about the prospect of…
