My quest for rare gems of nerdy goodness from the Multiverse of Media from my childhood has unearthed the following gems: from the alliance of Marvel and Parker Brothers descends the alien Dire Wraith slayer Rom the Spaceknight!
As I stated in a previous post, I loved the character of Rom, but had never owned the action figure or comic. Aside from a few issues I read in passing off a spinner rack or from a friends collection, my only real knowledge of the character was from a few ads in the early 80's and his entry in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe. OHOTMU was my gateway to so much of the Marvel Universe growing up through the 80's. The science and math nerd in me loved the codifying of superheroes that was done in these handbooks. Rom's entry was no exception.
