Yesterday, I posted on the apparent confusion that “Justice League: Generation Lost” editor Brian Cunningham was experiencing in terms of Ice and Icemaiden. We weren’t the only ones to discuss the issue; comments on the original blog post at DC’s The Source and a couple of threads on DC’s own message boards also flew.
In addition to several fans being generally annoyed at the editorial gaffe/possible retcon in progress, there were several comments about the look and attitude of the character as described by Cunningham. Many fear the “darkening” of Ice, a character noted largely for her innocence and sunny disposition (except when she dresses up as the dirty female version of her boyfriend’s boss and suggests that they have three-way-Gilligan’s Island-themed sex with a power-ring-generated participant).
Regardless, a fair number of comments noted that the new look Ice might be too similar to Killer Frost. I challenge that assessment. She’s too close to the Water Blast Iceman from the “Spider-Man & Friends” line of action figures.
What do you think, readers?
