ok i didn't draw this (i wish i did lol). It's by a friend of mine, Jeremy Dale who said i could color it. Anyway, this is probably the 4th time i've really tried to color with photoshop so please crit away. I used a color scheme that they used on the cover of one of the Spiderman Loves MJ books. Which was just two separate colors.
here's a link to the original: http://pandajeremy.livejournal.com/, oh and other work too! Anyway please crit away (and take some time to check out Jeremy's other work, it's great. Especially his comic, Absolute Zeroes:http://www.jeremy-dale.com/store.html)

Real quick, you've got some light source issues on this one. Iceman's head is shadowed on his left side, but his torso, left arm, and left leg don't share the same light source. Same with Firestar. She looks like she should be lit from below since that's where the most intense light source should be (what with the fire and all), but your shadows under her chest indicate she's being lit from above and to her left. The remaining shadows would indicate that she's being lit from above and to her right. Spidey should really have some of the light from Firestar's fire affecting him as well.
They're all coming across very flat, but I think you've got a really good start with this, and would love to see you push it further.
Keep it up.

The colored colors are good. But ta lacking a more little of light areas and shadow.

Here's a couple good ones.
I think you're on the right track with what you've got here, you just need to develop it further. Keep things in mind while you're coloring, like ice is a highly reflective surface, and fire usually gives off a lot of light. So there should be a lot of that light reflected on the ice and also on Spidey's back.
