This Incarnation: Classic
First Appearance: X-Men #1
Bobby’s powers first appeared in his early teens. He successfully kept them hidden until a bully forced his hand. After freezing the bully in a block of ice, he was hunted by a lynch mob of townspeople. Charles Xavier took notice and sent Cyclops to recruit him. The two didn’t immediately see eye-to-eye due to conflicting personalities. After Xavier has sat down and talked with Bobby and his parents, Bobby's parents suggest that he go with Professor Xavier to his "school for gifted youngsters". Bobby takes the suggestion and leaves with Professor Xavier and Cyclops to become the second member of the X-Men. He is also a founding member of X-Factor and The Champions.
