The latest episode of X-Men Podcast Jay & Miles X-Plain The X-Men features an interview with upcoming Iceman writer Sina Grace, who confirms that Northstar will be making an appearance in the series.
At the 35.20 mark a question from a listener is posed to Sina regarding Bobby's support base and the possibility of other queer characters appearing in the series, to which Sina replies:
"I've always been drawn to Northstar, I just love his personality and I think also he is a really good counterpart. His perspective is going to be really good to have play against Bobby's perspective on things."
Sina has previously written a version of Northstar and Kyle in Secret Wars Journal #4
Iceman #1 launches in June, written by Sina Grace with art by Alessandro Vitti and a cover by Kevin Wada.
