Power: Cryokinesis (8)

At its simplest, Bobby has the power to create and control ice and cold. He's an Omega Level mutant meaning that his power is pretty much limitless. Bobby subconsciously holds himself back though, fearing the extent of his powers and potentially losing control. This limits what he's able to do most of the time to weaker levels. Bobby usually covers himself in layers of thin and flexible ice when going into battle and tends to ride around on ice slides. He can do everything from beams to frigid energy to tossing snow or flinging sharp icicles around. His powers allow him a sort of thermal vision, letting him see hotter and colder areas. He's able to control the waves of ice and cold he puts out to make ice constructs and formations strong enough to encase even hulk-strength beings. He's even able to cause snowstorms and blizzards with enough effort. Bobby doesn't work himself to his full potential due to a combination of self-doubt, insecurities, and fear. Especially dry, hot, or dehydrated conditions can prevent him from being able to use his power effectively. His ability to use his powers is also tied to his physical and mental condition.

Power: Organic Ice Form (*)

Bobby has the ability to transform either partially or completely into a form of living ice. He takes on a semi translucent ice form that is virtually indestructible, able to reform himself even if shattered or incinerated. He can also use moisture in the air to form spikes, extra limbs, shields, and more. His ice form comes with other effects as well:

Dense Ice: (8) Durability. Bobby's shields, forms, and other ice creations can have exceptional durability. Depending on the available moisture, thicker constructs take slightly longer to form than thinner ones. Weapons: (4) Weapons that Bobby creates from ice are as powerful as heavy portable weaponry or military-grade explosives. Range: (4) Bobby's powers can reach up to 10 miles or affect an area with a radius of 5 miles.

Power: Thermokinesis (8)

Bobby is able to control and lower his internal and external tempurature to produce intense cold. This allows him to produce ice and snow. He's able to control this to the point where he could stop a fusion core explosion if he weren't subconsciously holding himself back.

Skill: Accounting (5)

Bobby's a certified public accountant. He went to school at ESU, studied, and graduated. His certification came shortly afterwards. He's an educated guy even if he doesn't like to show it.

Skill: Combat (4)

Bobby's had combat training with the X-Men and some other heroic friends. It's not his primary method of fighting but he can hold his own against other similarly skilled opponents.

Skill: Educated (3)

Bobby graduated from Empire State University where he studied accounting and has become a certified practicing accountant. He's an educated person even if he doesn't like to show it. This effectively bumps his intellect up to a 3.

Skill: Tactics (3)

Bobby's had tactical training with the X-men and had field experience. He's no Captain America but Bobby can be a skilled leader if he has to be.

Skill: Training (5)

Bobby has spent countless hours in training during his years at the Xavier Institute. He's trained his body in the depths of the Danger Room even if he doesn't push himself to his full limits. He's also trained himself academically but not as much as physically. When things get tough, Bobby knows he can rely on his training and feel safe that often times he's more prepared than his foes. This effectively makes his Willpower a 5 and his Perception a 5.


Advantage: Allies and Contacts

Outside of the X-Men, Bobby's got a few other superheroic friends in the world. It's mostly other younger heroes he teamed up with and spent time with but there's also people like former college classmates and former Xavier school graduates who may not have wanted to return for the X-men thing. They're not just allies, they're friends and he'd help them just like they'd help him.


Flaw: Confidence Issues

Bobby puts on a confident and carefree attitude but there are some deep confidence issues that keep him back. He doesn't use his powers to their full extent due to being afraid that he'll lose control of them or just not be good enough.

Flaw: Environment

In excessivey dry or hot environments, Bobby's powers aren't as effective as they can be. He'll also be far less effective if he's dehydrated.

Flaw: Jokester

Bobby has a reputation as a prankster and comedian. People might not take him seriously and can be annoyed by the jokes and pranks he makes. He also sometimes gets distracted by his own joking even if it is a way for him and the team to deal with the craziness of superheroics.

Flaw: Temper

He's not exactly a hot head but Bobby Drake does have a bit of a temper. Get him mad enough and he'll be more prone to slipping up.


A single child living in a suburb in New York City, Bobby's life was a normal one until his powers manifested. When protecting a girlfriend from a gang, Bobby accidentally froze the bullies. This led to the people of the town forming a mob and trying to kill him. He was rescued by Professor Xavier and became a founding member of the X-Men and one of the first students at the Xavier Institute. As a member of the X-Men, Bobby quickly befriended Beast. While he had a cheerful and carefree attitude towards most things and became known for pranks and jokes, Bobby stayed self-conscious about being the youngest member of the team and had to deal with some loneliness. He developed his powers significantly while a member of the team but eventually ended up leaving when he got into an argument with Professor Xavier. While away from the X-Men, Bobby ended up going to college. During that time he ended up teaming up with various other superheroes in the New York City area while attempting a solo superhero career. He formed a few alliances with other young heroes during this time. Eventually, the X-men needed help and Bobby wasn't going to let that call go unanswered. He returned to the team and the school and has been with them since.
