With comic books enjoyed by those young and old alike, it was about time they did something that their readers from the LGBT community could relate to. What is that you ask? It’s coming out to your parents.
While it isn’t something that should scare anyone, it is a very relevant topic in our society.
And in this comic, Iceman, comes out to his parents, and unfortunately, their reaction is anything but perfect.
While he came out to his friends a couple of years ago, it divided fans, but it was generally nice to see a main character who was gay.
Yet when he does the same thing to his parents, it just proves that while we have come a long way in terms of acceptance, it shows that there is still a way to go.
