He is the coolest member of the X-Men. In his debut appearance Iceman was first introduced to audiences when reporting to Professor Xavier along side his team of superheroes, one of the original members of the X-men he fist appeared already in his all ice form while riding a stream of ice. Proud of his abilities to freeze objects Iceman demonstrated his skills to Beast who in turn was angered causing an argument, with this being broken up by Angel the team prepared for their next lesson by the Professor. During his training Iceman pleaded with the Professor to stop taking it easy on because he was the youngest on the team at only 16 years old, despite this Iceman exemplified this by using a carrot and a broomstick to make look like a snowman with Beast trying to catch Iceman unaware he threw a bowling ball at him, which Iceman deflected back at Beat using his ability to create ice.
Next going up against Cyclops Iceman created an ice cube shield which failed to protect him, with training coming to an end at the end of the day Professor asked them to get back into their ordinary outfits and prepare to meet Jean Grey. It was at this Iceman returned in his ordinary form as Bobby Drake. Shortly after Xavier sent Iceman and the team on a mission to stop Magneto who had begun an attack on an army base aiming to use their missiles against man kind, using his ice powers Bobby froze the missiles in mid-air before protecting the team from the explosion by forming an igloo around them. Following this Iceman remained a member of the X-Men team, by 1986 he and the original team reunited to form the X-Force before getting a massive power upgrade the following year in Thor #377, in that issue Loki captures Iceman and boosts his power levels in order to use him as fuel for his ice canon before Iceman was saved by Thor.
By 2009 the character was finally given an origin story. There we see young Bobby Drake discovering his powers when he inevitably froze his parents swimming pool. While Bobby felt like a freak his parents were very understanding telling him he was a mutant and that he would have to learn to be careful with his powers. Soon Bobby learned that he was able to use the moisture in the air to create ice. During a run with a bully Bobby lost control and ended up freezing the bully.
With his mutation discovered it made his parents realize that they could no longer protect their son from the public, while Bobby packed up his belongings with preparation to flee the police arrived and took him away. This resulted with Bobby being locked up while an angry mob demanded blood. There he was soon broken out of jail by Cyclops and Professor X, recognizing Xavier from the T.V as being a mutant expert he agreed to come and live with the other youngsters before becoming part of a special team. After some time Xavier used his powers to erase both Bobby's parent and the public's knowledge of the event and Bobby's powers.
