    They've turned Rom into such a badass in this. In contrast to him constantly getting knocked down in his own series.

    Thankfully the universe's overall dislike of Cybertronians has been previously well established, so Rom's decision to fight Optimus kind of makes sense. Although like all crossover events where the heroes fight, there is always more than enough stupid to go around.

    Gotta admit, loving that Rom redesign, and looking forward to seeing where this goes.

    I wonder if ROM has any connections to the Galactic Council.

    You have to remember that the Dire Wraiths are acting different than they normally did on other worlds to Rom and have become more powerful on Earth, Rom's Revolution tie-in issue even show them creating a super soldier just to fight him.

    It doesn't seem likely with the Solstar Order being from another galaxy and solely hunting the Dire Wraiths, who've been avoided the Transformers.

    Ugh. Crossovers. Like those ever brought anything good into TF mythology. Well, apart from Death's Head, but then again, he more like, originated from Transformers.
    Also, even if ROM is killing Dire Wraiths, that's not gonna endear him any more to Optimus.

    Are you forgetting how Optimus executed Galvatron and the Dire Wraiths are much worse than the Decepticons.

    Well, given that she believes her mentor was just killed by a Cybertronian... I'd be a little concerned if she didn't keep it for a while longer.

    Quite a long time. I believe Mainframe will be the one who ferret the truth out, he may hate Soundwave (considering he does the same job) but he has contact with Action Man.

    I am liking Rom and Action Man enough consider send more coffers to IDW.

    Hasbro. For fuck's sake, make a damn Rom figure.

    Ideally (for me) a Titan Master so you can have an in-scale little Rom, and then pop him on a body if you want him to go toe-to-toe with a TF.

    Seriously, take all of my money.

    The thing that makes me sad is we\'ll probably never see the original Marvel series ROM comics put into trades. Everyone who\'s read them only seem to have good things to say. But unlike Transformers they were very integrated into the Marvel Universe, and way too many Marvel characters showed up. Heck characters that were created in that still show up in other Marvel comics on occasion.

    Okay, to put it another way: how long will she ride the "Transformers are bad I don't care who's good or evil" wagon? Because it appears a lot of humans in these stories are doing that.

    I am going to be stating the obvious for a second. I don\'t know too much about ROM, but something tells that ROM had a good reason doing what it did. Read the first Revolution issue and it\'s a fun read IMO.
