Bobby was Jewish on his mother ‘s side and Irish Catholic on his father ‘s. Bobby beginning discovered his mutant abilities at a young age when he found himself unable to stop feel cold and shudder. A school bang-up named Rocky Beasely had convinced his gang to attack Bobby and Judy Harmon, his girlfriend at the time. Bobby panicked and encased Rocky in ice, saving Judy, but revealing his abilities to his peers. Believing Bobby to be a dangerous mutant, the people of his town, Fort Washington, organized a lynch mob. The gang broke into the Drake family and overpowered them. The local sheriff noticed that things were getting out of hand and took Bobby into hands for his own protective covering. The fib made its way to Professor Charles Xavier, founder of the X-Men. [ 13 ]


Xavier sent Scott Summers ( Cyclops ) to recruit Bobby. After Bobby turned him down, the two mutants got into a abbreviated scramble before the throng caught up with them.

An explosion occurred soon after in front of the theater, instigated by Jubilee, who offered the three of them to join her in riot over their stolen and slowly-returning memories. Iceman and the others happily accepted. [ 111 ] unbeknown to the rioters and with Blob ‘s encouragement, Psylocke released all of the memories she had stored in her judgment, both from prisoners arrested by Department X and, apparently, her teammates. soon after, Northstar remembered his past friendship with Iceman, facetiously calling him “ otter-pop ” ( a gay endearment referring to his ice-making abilities and physique ). This fully snapped Bobby back to himself and he hugged Jean-Paul in remembrance. [ 112 ] Although not shown on panel, Iceman returned to the mainstream reality with the rest of the trap mutants through Nate Grey ‘s portals .


Bobby was late seen drinking aboard Archangel and Beast at the celebration following the announcement of Krakoa as a sovereign state under the United Nations and the first meet of the Quiet Council of Krakoa. [ 113 ] Bobby then joined his ex-girlfriend Kate Pryde and others in helping mutants get to Krakoa by traveling aboard the ship The Marauder. [ 10 ] During this time, he entered a kinship with Emma Frost ‘s brother, Christian, [ 114 ] [ 115 ] but, after Kate ‘s death, Bobby distanced himself from everybody, including Christian. [ 116 ] Bobby was one of the Omega Level Mutants that helped transform Mars into Arakko. [ 117 ]

Iceman is an Omega Level mutant [ 118 ] [ 119 ] [ 120 ] [ 103 ] [ 121 ] [ 122 ] He was besides considered an Omega Level Mutate by Supergiant, [ 123 ] an Alpha-Level Mutant by Apocalypse, [ 124 ] and a High Threat by the O * N * E. [ 118 ] According to Prosh, his Comparative Mutagenic Power Register was of 3.2. [ 125 ] On a daily basis, Drake ‘s powers are n’t capable of their highest flush of performance, but this potential has been unlocked on some occasions by respective encounters- specifically with Loki, [ 126 ] Mikhail Rasputin, [ 68 ] and Emma Frost. [ 127 ] On other occasions, his abilities were unlocked by telepaths, such as Psylocke. [ 6 ]

  • Thermokinesis: Iceman is a mutant with the ability to lower both his external and internal body temperature, which projects intense coldness from his body. Like any normal human being, the nerve centers for regulating Iceman’s body temperature are found in the part of the brain called the hypothalamus. However, Iceman can mentally override his hypothalamus to allow his body temperature to be lowered by an unknown internal mechanism. This ability converts the latent thermal energies in and around his body into an unknown form of energy that is efficiently dissipated. A related mutation has rendered his body tissues unaffected by sub-zero temperatures. Iceman can consciously, immediately lower his body temperature from its normal 98.6 Fahrenheit to absolute zero (The point where all molecular motion stops.) and lower within the span of a few tenths of a second. Iceman’s power to generate cold is so great, he was able to stop a massive fusion device explosion.[9]As his body temperature falls, the surrounding moisture in the air that is in contact with him is similarly lowered. Just as condensed moisture forms frost, this moisture forms an icy covering which encompasses his entire body. It also obscures his facial features. When Iceman first began to completely lower his body temperature, this covering took on a more snow-like appearance. But as he learned to increase the severity of his coldness, the covering assumed the consistency of crystalline ice that it has today. This ice constantly cracks with any movement of his body, and immediately reforms (hence, there is a cracking sound when Iceman covered with ice, moves). Through practice, Iceman has learned to control the intensity of his coldness, and he can selectively lower the temperature of isolated parts of his body.
    • Thermal Vision: When lowering his body temperature, Iceman can see other beings via the heat signatures they give off because of the absence of heat around himself.
  • Cryokinesis: Iceman can generate, manipulate, and fully control ice, snow, and cold temperatures. He can use his mutant ability to control moisture such as to freeze any air moisture into super-hard ice. This ice can be formed into any object of his choosing: the only limitations are his own imagination and the ambient air temperature which determines how long his ice sculpture will stay icy. He does not have to hold the ice physically with his hands in order to shape it. Apparently, he can simply direct the waves of coldness he projects in certain ways so as to create ice in the shape he desires. In the past, Iceman has formed ice-ladders, ice-slides, ice-shields, ice-domes, ice-bolts, ice-blasts, ice-beams, and other constructs of ice. Iceman has created constructs of ice so powerful that he was able to easily encase and contain the likes of the Hulk with him being unable to break out of it for quite some time. On at least one occasion, he has even been shown to make it snow or cause a blizzard. He can also unfreeze matter.

    Iceman is able to form a rising column of ice beneath his feet, capable of lifting him off the ground. The tensile strength of the column is determined by its thickness and its steadiness by how well it has been braced. A well-braced and regular column, 6 feet in diameter at its base, is able to support his weight without toppling for about 85 feet in a 40-mile per hour wind. By forming long ice-ramps connected either to his ice-column or to an existing structure like a building or a bridge, Iceman is able to travel above the ground by sliding down the ramp he is creating. Unless he creates supports periodically, the ramp will crack beneath him, unable to support their combined weight. Iceman although has shown that he is not limited to creating constructs and can fly on his own with his control over moisture, or by levitating the ice on his own body.

    Iceman’s control of his powers are so vast that it extends to the molecular level, to the point that he can freeze all of the molecules of an object/being with a thought, as well as unfreeze it. An example would be freezing the blood in the veins, thereby stopping flow to the brain. He has demonstrated the ability to control chemical reactions on the molecular level, at one point preventing Sunfire from accessing his powers.[88]

    • Organic-Ice Form: Ability to not only cover his body with ice, but to actually become organic ice.[128] Though the appearance is similar, Iceman is now actually translucent in his ice form. Iceman is virtually indestructible in this form, allowing him to reform his body should it become shattered or evaporated. He has been incinerated while in human form and was able to rebuild himself. In his ice form, he is able to use the moisture in the air to form spikes, shields and attach other extra appendages to his body. It is currently unknown if Bobby would be considered immortal.

      Due to the amount of water on Earth, Iceman has a virtually unlimited supply of moisture since it is always present in the surrounding air or environment. Even desert air has sufficient moisture content for him to make temporary practical use of; however, the mental effort needed to employ his mutant power under these circumstances could eventually fatigue him and render his freezing ability temporarily dysfunctional. Due to his cryokinetic-based powers, Iceman is able to sense, generate and manipulate various cold aspects of the weather such as snow, hail, blizzards, cold air, freezing rain etc.

  • Hydrokinesis: Iceman can manipulate water at molecular level, he can use surrounding moisture to augment himself, allowing him to travel within large bodies of water very quickly. He accomplishes this by breaking himself down to his base levels and reforming at the destination. He is able to convert his body to gigantic proportions as well, through absorption of a body of water or water vapor in the air. One side effect of this is he gains superhuman strength to match his superhuman size. Wherever there is any moisture, Iceman is a threat. Iceman has demonstrated the ability to be transformed into nothing more than water or water vapor, yet remain conscious and retain the use of his powers. His conscious control of his abilities has allowed him to exist simultaneously in two places at once.
  • Molecular Moisture Inversion: The ability to freeze water molecules turning them into solid ice.
  • Molecular Moisture Conversion: The ability to transform organic matter, such as a human body, to organic ice and back again. With this, it is possible for him to project his consciousness through moisture molecules and reform his body at the destination. Though he has only done this to himself, he does possess the potential, as demonstrated by his AoA counterpart, to perform the feat with passengers. He later demonstrated this ability by converting Bishop to moisture as well as himself.[129]
  • Ice Clone Generation: The ability to generate ice clones of himself. It is unknown how many ice clones he can create at once.
  • Cryokinetic Perception: After he managed to freeze the Earth in ice and snow, Iceman gained the ability to spread his consciousness through the icy matter and perceive all events occurring within it, likening it to the perception of a God.[96]
  • Cellular Replacement: Bobby discovered that he was able to use his control over moisture to draw ambient moisture into himself and thus use that moisture to replace his bodies cells. He framed this ability as ‘A body swap, done one piece- one cell- at a time’, and by doing this was able to avoid receiving a fatal dose of neurotoxin, by letting the poisoned molecules of his body dissipate into vapor and be replaced by untainted water molecules from his surroundings. By using this ability he can heal/purge himself by remaking his own body.[130]

Like that of any aim athlete, Iceman ‘s ability to perform is directly related to his daily physical health and current mental department of state. Under normal conditions, he can normally form internal-combustion engine continually for a period of about 5 hours before becoming mentally exhausted. He seems to lack the creativity and imagination to use his powers to their full potential, though fear of losing control condition over them may be a factor in his reluctance .

other notes

  • Iceman has at times expressed reluctance to “unfrost” himself, and a preference for his ice-form even when not needed for missions.[146]
  • Iceman has feared that he could be killed by Cyclops’ blasts, if his teammate poorly aimed them.[146]


  • Bobby thinks his teammate Angel is hot.[25][26][147]
  • Bizarre Adventures #27 lists some different historical information on Bobby Drake. His birthplace is listed as Floral Park

    , New York; And his father’s name is noted as ‘Robert N.’ Drake. At the time Drake was a student at Dartmouth College.

  • Iceman was one of the characters featured in the series of Marvel Value Stamps issued in the 1970s.
  • It is currently unknown if Iceman suppressed his secondary mutation along with his powers or if, like Black Tom Cassidy, he lost his secondary mutation and kept his primary mutation after M-Day.
  • Most of Iceman’s more creative uses for his powers were done by Emma Frost inside Iceman’s body and have yet to actually be done by Iceman himself.
  • As mentioned by writer Mike Carey, Iceman is “an Omega-level mutant…[and] has powers that can influence the ecosystem of the entire world.” Iceman has yet to tap into his full mutant potential, but over the years he has taken more interest in developing his abilities.
  • Interestingly enough, Cyclops was the one who suggested that Bobby focus on “refining his ice crystals,” making his ice-form less like a snowman and more like a living transparent being of ice.[19]
  • Iceman was stated to be an Omega Level Mutate by Supergiant.
  • The change of Iceman’s ice form from being smooth to having spikes was conceived by Scott Lobdell. When Lobdell asked Uncanny X-Men editor Bob Harras permission to alter Iceman’s appearance, he was turned down, due to an Iceman action figure having been just released by ToyBiz at the time, arguing the licensor wouldn’t be okay with the character looking differently in the comics than he did in the toy. Lobdell got around to changing Iceman’s appearance, albeit temporarily, when the character was taken over by Emma Frost in eldritch X-Men #314. As it turned out, the marketing division came up to Lobdell and asked him to use the spiked design for an action figure, which led to Iceman having spikes in his ice form becoming a long-term change.[149]
