Biography

Childhood

Bobby was always an attention seeker, practically from birth, even though he was a single child. He loved cracking wise and making jokes, which his mother would often laugh at and just shake her head, while his father would frown and scold him disapprovingly. Likewise, once he was old enough to attend school he made every effort to make his classmates laugh, while his teachers tried (and failed) to keep him in line.

His powers first manifested when he was thirteen years old. Some of his fellow students were picking on him at school, which wasn’t unusual, however one day he’d had enough and started fighting back. It was in the winter months and there was snow around, and the bullies were pelting him with snowballs while holding him to the snow. When his powers kicked in the kids holding his arms down yelped in shock as Bobby’s body grew cold enough for them to feel through his clothes, one of them even getting frostbite on his fingers. Once he was free, Bobby leapt to his feet and starting throwing snowballs at his assailants with enough force to knock them down and backwards - it was only after they all fled that he realized he hadn’t actually picked up any snow.

Bobby kept his powers secret after they manifested. He experimented with them in private when he could, trying to figure out just exactly what he could and couldn’t do, and what triggered them so he wouldn’t do it in public. Thanks to word getting out about his last fight he was mostly left alone by his classmates and he never had to use his powers in self defence again; however, he did use them to help with practical jokes and to annoy those who had picked on him in the past. While life at school had gotten better, his home life had not. His father was especially hard on him, and when his grades started to slip more and more as he got more popular by focusing more on joking and goofing off, his dad punished him for less and less. Tension between them grew to the point that they were fighting on a daily basis, which was extremely hard on his mother. When his father finally pushed him too far and Bobby used his powers on him, freezing his fists and decking him hard, his mother had no choice but to side with her husband and reluctantly started looking at boarding schools for her son.

Living At The X-Mansion

As hard as he had tried to keep his secret under wraps, word about his mutant abilities reached Xavier’s somehow and strings were pulled to get him into the school. There he learned how to control his powers and how to push them even further, gaining enough control to turn his whole body into not just snow but ice, and how to travel quickly via ice sliding. Bobby is still working on the finer control and full extent of his powers, and became a member of Generation X at the school to help with that.

Bobby lived a mostly quiet life at the school, participating in Gen X activities and classes and going to school with the other teens. He made friends easily with his fellow Gen Xers, his easy going personality allowing him to fit in. He made especially good friends with his roommate, Miles Morales, the two of them bonding over their lamentations of being single. In October they went to Homecoming together, cementing their epic bromance (and were easily the best couple at the dance). He even got to put his GenX training to good use in December when a GenX field trip was interrupted by a car accident, and they helped the victims.

2016

Bobby and his roommate, Miles, continued to get on well in the beginning of the year. A bump in the road came up, however, when it was eventually revealed that Miles was in fact Spider-Man - at least one of the Spider Men, at any rate. The revelation that his roommate had been hiding this big secret from him hurt Bobby worse than he would've thought, and, while he was fairly quick to put it behind him (he was living with the guy, after all), it left him wondering just why it had hurt him so much in the first place.

Powers

Iceman is able to lower his external and internal body temperature without harm to himself, thereby radiating intense cold from his body. Iceman is able to reach -105 degrees Fahrenheit within a few seconds, and is immune to sub-zero temperatures around him. In addition, Iceman can freeze any moisture in the air around him into unusually hard ice, and thereby form simple objects such as slides, ladders, shields, and bats. Iceman can augment his ice form with extraneous moisture to enhance his strength and durability, and can reshape his body's ice form at will by using any available moisture from his surrounding environment. Similarly, Iceman can rebuild his ice form if any part of it is broken or if it is shattered completely without suffering any permanent damage.


Equipment

Trivia

Bobby is a huge New York Islanders fan, and his most prized possession is an old Mike Bossy jersey that his father gave him.
