Iceman is well-known as a mutant and a member of the X-Men, having been a part of the team from a very young age. He is a student in New York City and is studying to be a teacher. He's never been known to hide what he is, and that alone sometimes makes him a target.
1998: Born in New York City, NY to William and Madeline Drake.
2008: Suffered from constantly being cold but doctors were unable to diagnose what was wrong with him. His parents grew increasingly more concerned as time went on.
2010: Bobby discovered that he was a mutant who could encase himself in snow and ice. He had difficulty controlling his abilities, sometimes spontaneously freezing things around him.
2011: Bobby froze a bully in a block of ice who had been causing problems for he and a friend from school which caused him to be taken into custody. At first, he refused recruitment into Xavier's school, but eventually he did accept and became part of the first class of Mutants there and one of it's youngest members. There, he learned to control his abilities and developed his ice form.
2014: Bobby went to Krakoa as one of his first missions where he was captured along with some of the other mutants and fed upon by the island.
2016: He began college in NYC, studying Accounting. He moves to NYC to attend classes, but remains a part of the X-Men and continues to go on missions, juggling both (sometimes with difficulty).
2018: During the chaos of Loki's assault on NYC, Bobby helped out where he could helping to protect the university where he was studying. He changes majors to Mathematics with the intention to work toward initial teacher certification, deciding that he'd like to teach rather than be an accountant.
2020: Bobby is in his last year at the University with plans to return to Xavier's to teach after completing his licensure requirements.
Bobby is honest in his dealings with others. If he likes something, they'll know it. If he doesn't like something, they'll know that, too. The only real exception is if he feels like keeping his thoughts to himself, then he tends to deflect with humor.
He truly does want to hope for the best, and while often one needs to prepare for the worst -- he consistently holds out hope.
Bobby's unrealized potential with his abilities could result in a tremendous amount of destruction. However, he excels at holding himself back and exerting self-control even under extreme pressure. It was the lack of control of his abilities in his youth that made him feel deep responsibility, and a need to always be in control of his own actions.
Bobby is able to create and shape ice into a dizzying variety of constructs limited only by his ability to keep them frozen. So long as they remain within his active control, or in ambient freezing temperatures, they will maintain their form. Once he is no longer controlling them, they will melt if heat is applied or ambient temperatures support it. He can also create localized snow and ice storms in this fashion. The limits to which Bobby can freeze/unfreeze matter at a molecular level are unknown, but he can both freeze and unfreeze matter with no ill effects if he chooses. He can create a ramp of ice on which he can slide to travel at speeds equivalent to an automobile so long as he has something to anchor it to. Extensive spans of ice with no support will eventually crack and be unable to hold weight.
Bobby is able to extend his senses through an area of continuous ice or snow in order to observe that environment and everything in it, revealing anything he could normally see, hear, smell, taste, or touch using his regular senses as though he were present in that location. This does not reveal anything hidden or concealed through powers of any kind.
Bobby has similar levels of control of water in its liquid form to that of ice. He is able to manipulate water, transform into water, and move through water at high speeds. He can also cause water to rain down in the same way that he can create a blizzard or ice storm.
Bobby is able to take on a completely translucent ice form which can be regenerated in the event that he is shattered, melted, or reduced to vapor. He is able to reconstitute himself and even regenerate lost limbs. In this form he possesses superhuman strength and resilience which allows him to withstand a tremendous amount of force.
Bobby is able to lower the ambient temperature around his body and his own internal temperature between normal human levels and absolute zero nearly instantly. He is unaffected by cold temperatures. The ambient temperature drop extends outward from his body as its central point and moves with him if he moves.
Through constant practice, Bobby has become particularly skilled in combat using the ice weaponry that he can create including blades, bludgeons, and projectiles created from shards of ice.
Bobby is a skilled Mathematician and has a strong knowledge of Accounting, even though he stopped short of finishing his degree in Accounting.
Bobby is a skilled ice skater, able to perform all manner of tricks and skate at high speeds.
He is working on becoming licensed to be a teacher and is good at providing instruction and guidance to others, usually with the sense of humor to make it entertaining.
Bobby has an old bike that is in pretty good condition that he uses when not traveling via other less mundane methods. It was a gift, and he keeps it in good shape because he can't afford a car.
Bobby was part of Xavier's first class and continues to be a part of the X-Men. He has access to all of the equipment and facilities at the disposal of its membership.
Bobby has a habit of making light of things, joking around, and not seeming to take things seriously, which can be frustrating to others around him. Sometimes, it's a defense mechanism -- making light of things in order to cope. Sometimes, it's when he's feeling more than he really wants to share.
The longer that Bobby sustains his more powerful abilities such as freezing large volumes of material, maintaining absolute zero temperatures, or extending his senses over vast distances, the more exhausted he becomes and the longer that it takes to recover. While he can reconstitute himself even from being shattered or turned to vapor, the process takes a great deal of time and is taxing, taking him out of commission.
Short On Cash:
He's pretty broke. He has enough income to scrape by but he is living the ramen life most of the time. His tuition, room, and board is covered by scholarships, grants, and some student loans that he will likely be paying off forever.
