Subj: IDW ROM #9
Posted: Wed Apr 19, 2017 at 09:31:30 pm EDT (Viewed 2 times)

The Wraiths unleash some type of Super Wraith called The Absence.

Basically it is an intangible Wraith that cannot be externally harmed, however ROM divines its weakness and before it can kill Orphion, ROM sticks his neutalizer INSIDE the wraith and blasts it.

The other spaceknight had her power drained by the Wraith's attack, ROM tries to recharge her and pleads with Orphion who tells ROM he should have been a lawyer. As both are power depleted they combine their energies to revive her.

She is ungrateful and feels they should have destroyed the Earth. Orphion however is now in a more of a listening mood to here about Earth.

Apparently the Wraiths plan to make Earth into their new Homeworld.

At the end the Absence is still alive and says that soon The PRESENCE shall arrive.

Note: The Wraith's ultimate plan in the Marvel series was to make Earth into Wraithworld by merging Wraithworld with Earth.

Classic ROM #9

ROM is trapped underground until his systems recover from the Deathwing.
He uses his analyzer to follow an energy trail and is in turn followed by Serpentyne, the last of his reptillian race born from the first atomic test.

Basically, this issue was to wrap up the loose ends from when Ms. Marvel encountered Serpentyne and his people.

Serpentyne goes mad and wants ROM's neutralizer to destroy the Wraiths.

They fight, and he dies by his own weapon but wishes ROM well and that he now goes to his people. ROM understands Serpentyne's anguish as he walks away.
