Do You Fear...Losing Your Fruit Pies?

So, Marvel has this Fear Itself event going on, and as if the main threat of The Serpent weren't enough, his emergence and the appearance of several mystic hammers worldwide have triggered a series of smaller catastrophes. The hammer claimed by Juggernaut crashed into the Raft holding facility, freeing dozens of super villains to run amok. In Fear Itself: The Home Front #2, a half dozen of the fugitives run afoul of Robbie Baldwin aka Speedball, in the town of Stamford, Connecticut:

And yes, that's The Icemaster attacking Speedball. Recently mentioned here as the only Hostess Snack Cake Villain to actually make it to the big leagues of the real Marvel Universe, and here he is, in an actual Marvel Event, spreading fear with actual Marvel Super-Villains the Whirlwind and the Living Laser. But what has he been up to since his prison break? What twisted crimes has this cold, cold criminal unleashed on a terrified world in this time of fearful fearity-fear?

Stealing all the delicious Hostess Fruit Pies he can get his icy fingers on, of course! No gritty reboot for this guy! After all these years, Icemaster still gets a big delight from every bite of Hostess Fruit Pies. But hey, who doesn't?
