Cold Love

Happy Valentines...
And to continue with my "Versus" series, I thought what if we get the ice superpower people from Marvel and DC Comics together, would they battle? I don't really know any male superheroes equivalent to Marvel's Iceman, at least to my knowledge. They're all seems to be villains, Mr. Freeze, Captain Cold, etc...But what if there was a crossover where Iceman would face Killer Frost, would they really fight? If you were an ice made man and came across an ice made "hot" chick, I think the last thing you would do it's fight. Catch my drift? I know this goes against my tradition of making DC, Marvel, Dark Horse or Image characters fight against the equivalent of each other's universe, but it seemed appropriate under this occasion.
Oh, yeah...I almost forgot the comic book education for the comic book illiterate:

Iceman (Robert "Bobby" Louis Drake) is a Marvel Comics superhero, a member of the X-Men. Created by writer Stan Lee and artist/co-writer Jack Kirby, he first appeared in X-Men (vol. 1) #1, (September 1963).
A mutant, Iceman has the ability of cryokinesis where he can freeze anything around him and can also turn his body into ice. Although he is an Omega-level mutant, Drake has yet to tap his full mutant potential. He has, however, begun to take more interest over the years in developing his abilities. One of the original X-Men, Iceman has had a frequent presence in X-Men (and Spider-Man)-related comics, video games, animated series, and movies.

Killer Frost is the name of two characters in the DC Comics universe. They are both supervillains that appear mainly as foes of the superhero Firestorm.
Crystal Frost first appeared in Firestorm #3 (June 1978). While Crystal Frost was studying to be a scientist in Hudson University, she fell in love with her teacher, Martin Stein. While working on a project in the Arctic, Frost was upset to learn that Stein didn't reciprocate her feelings. Frost accidentally locked herself in a thermafrost chamber, but somehow survived. She was transformed in a way that she was able to absorb heat from a living being and project cold and ice. Calling herself Killer Frost, she began her murderous crusade against men and clashed with Firestorm on many occasions. Frost eventually died after she absorbed too much energy from Firestorm.
Dr. Louise Lincoln first appeared in Firestorm (vol. 2) # 21 (March 1984). She was a colleague and friend to Crystal Frost. After her friend died, she decided to repeat the experiment as a last respect to her former mentor, and became the new Killer Frost. She became just as ruthless as her predecessor and began her own personal vendetta against Firestorm, whom she blamed for Frost's death. She briefly served as a member of the Suicide Squad and sold her soul to Neron for more power.
Obviously I decided to draw the most recent one, the one alive in the DC Universe.
