Discover the Legacy of the Marvel Universe with MARVEL LEGACY #1 In the beginning, there was nothing. The Marvel universe was merely an idea, a passing thought in the creative minds of the writers and artists. Then, suddenly, the groundbreaking publishing company entered upon the comic books scene sweeping the nation. These stories have lasted generations, inspiring people for years with fantastic and heroic tales. Yet as time wore on, the webs between the various heroes became more and more intertwined. Heroes of Asgard were somehow known by those on earth, and those on earth were well regarded in the deep recesses of space. The continuity became muddled. MARVEL LEGACY attempts to solve all the questions dedicated readers have on the interconnectivity of these stories.

ICEMAN #1: The Coolest X-Men For those of you who haven’t heard, ICEMAN is coming back strong with a whole new series of comics. Written by Sina Grace with art by Alessandro Vitti, the series follows the return of Bobby Drake’s teenage self. This sudden appearance forces Drake to confront the kind of man he’s become and asks the past version if he wishes to become that in the future.Courtesy of Marvel Comics What’s fascinating in this issue is we get to see present Iceman interact with his parents. They seem aware that he’s a hero with his powers yet cannot accept him fully for who he is. This parallels Iceman’s difficulty with managing his own sexuality. For example, he eagerly fills out a dating profile while he attempts to please his parents, who appear incapable of accepting his mutant side let alone his sexuality. That inner turmoil of what things turned out and how his younger self is able to find happiness in his reality is such a great conflict to have. I’m excited to see where Grace and Vitti take this.
