All New X-Men #40 was released this past Wednesday, and it revealed that original X-Men member Robert Drake, more commonly known as “Iceman,” is gay. Via Gay Star News: “The comic series centers around the five young original X-Men (Angel, Beast, Cyclops, Iceman and Jean Grey) who time travel to the present day and fight alongside new members of the team.”

The revelation has caused a fair amount of discussion online because there has long been speculation that Iceman had not been completely forthcoming with his sexuality. For an interesting take on the history of the conversation, check out Comic Book Resources article on it here.
