Mrs. Madeline Drake: [to Bobby] Have you ever tried… not being a mutant?

In the X-Men film franchise’s second installment, Bobby Drake (aka Iceman) takes on a larger role as he teams up with Wolverine, Rogue and Pyro. In this scene Bobby reveals his mutant abilities to his parents leading his mother to ask the question above, a refrain commonly linked to the struggle among the LGBT community for equality and understanding.
