Iceman is now a teacher at the Jean Grey School for Mutants, but at one time was the school’s youngest student. Often suffering from low self-esteem and repeatedly having his heart broken by girls that left him for other heroes such as: fellow X-Man Polaris who left him for Havok, the Russian Darkstar who was just not that into him, New Defender Cloud that walked around as both man and woman and eventually revealed themselves to be an alien entity which turned Bobby off, the strange mutant Infectia which…come on her name was INFECTIA, human Opal Tanaka that drifted away from him when her former lover died protecting her and Iceman from an attack, Nurse Annie who was actually in love with Havok (AGAIN!! That guy’s a total c*ck-block!) and split on Bobby for him, and Mystique who was just playing him. The poor young man is left cold at every attempt at love. However, despite his reservations about being a hero, and his inability to maintain a long lasting meaningful romantic relationship, Iceman is an Omega level mutant and one of the most powerful on the planet.
