X-Men's Iceman FINALLY Gets to Kiss His Boyfriend

It's the moment LGBT X-Men fans have been waiting forever for!

The latest issue of the All-New X-Men features a long-awaited same-sex kiss between the hero Iceman and his romantic interest Romeo.

Despite Iceman being a mutant and Romeo being a rival Inhuman, they both obviously have huge feelings for each other, which culminated in the beautifully illustrated (and historic) comic book kiss.

Iceman, who was revealed to be gay in a 2015 issue of the Uncanny X-Men, is part of the Marvel universe's (slow but sure) push to portray and celebrate diversity, and judging by some fans' reactions, the push is much-appreciated.

When asked by BBC Radio about Iceman's coming out in 2015, X-Men creator and legendary comic book writer Stan Lee had encouraging words to say, and was completely fine with it.

"I don't care what happens, as long as they tell good stories...and they do," Lee said.

If Iceman is a sign of what's to come, then we can't wait for the increasing diversity Marvel has in store for the future!
