Marvel has revealed a new teaser for the mysterious ResurrXion. The project will follow after Death of X, and Inhumans Vs. X-Men. This new teaser image plays off of the “A New Beginning” tagline from last week’s Resurrxtion An Ending. A Beginning Teaser. This teaser promises ICEMAN #1 with images from the Iceman‘s over 50-year history.
Bobby Drake helped to found the X-Men as Iceman in 1963’s X-Men #1 alongside Cyclops, Beast, Angel and Jean Grey. Iceman along with the original X-Men team traveled from the past to the present after present day Beast traveled back to recruit the young X-Men in an attempted intervention for his friend Cyclops who has began a journey down a darker path.
Since returning young Iceman was “outed” by young Jean Grey and has since come out to everyone that he was gay, something that until All-New X-Men #40 was only a joke on FOX‘s Family Guy. Until he came out last year Iceman has had multiple relationships with women, some long-term throughout his over 50-year history. With the young Bobby Drake being out the present day Iceman had to also state he repressed his sexuality due to pressures of the time and is also out.
While Iceman was a founding member of the X-Men it was actually his appearance as a lead character in the ’80’s animated series Spider-Man & his Amazing Friends that he became a household name. Since then Iceman has appeared in other X-Men related animated series, but not as a regular including FOX‘s X-Men, and Kid’s WB X-Men Evolution, as well as appearing in FOX‘s live-action X-Men movie franchise.
There is currently no further information on the tile including the creators. It is also unclear who will star in the series, if it will be the young Iceman from the past or the present day Iceman.
