> I’d say it probably depends on the climate, couldn’t they just put whatever they’d want to freeze outside their cave? If the cavemen were in a generally warmer area I’d say they wouldn’t have any ice powers, unless their cave was deep and dark enough to support freezing temperatures.

> You’re not going to like my answer, but I think the answer is YES, in that we all have similar powers, simply by existing on a planet where things get cold sometimes. Put something in the Arctic and it will freeze and get generally colder.
