Can anyone explain the significance of the cover art of Astonishing X-Men issue number 56? Its the same as the current picture of Iceman for his comic vine page. When I saw this I expected to see Iceman mimic Gambit's powers like creating his card and making them explode, but he didn't. Did the artists created this just to show how powerful Iceman's powers are or can he actually make his ice creations explode?

@ultimatekey: I think it was mostly an artistic thing, but Iceman can unmake his constructs so it would surprise me if he could blow them apart. That wouldn't really be that different from making his ice fly from his hands.
