ROM And The X-Men: Marvel Tales #1

ROM And The X-Men: Marvel Tales #1

Jay Cochran - September 22, 2023
Earlier this year, Marvel Comics announced the return of a comic book icon: ROM! Thanks to an exciting new collaboration between Marvel and Hasbro, a leading toy and game company, fans can enjoy the beloved adventures of this popular toy turned Marvel super hero in the form of long-awaited collections, including the upcoming Rom Omnibus Vol. 1 and this week’s Facsimile Edition of ROM #1. Then, in December, see rare mutant moments reprinted for the very first time in ROM AND THE X-MEN: MARVEL TALES #1.

Over the course of his hit solo series by industry legends Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema, Rom the Spaceknight proved to be a pivotal figure in the Marvel Universe and fought alongside its greatest super hero teams including the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men. ROM AND THE X-MEN: MARVEL TALES #1 collects ROM (1979) #17-18 and ROM (1979) #31-32, showcasing Rom’s first encounter with the Children of the Atom and more!

During his classic adventures hunting the vile Dire Wraiths on Earth, Rom became embroiled in the affairs of mutantdom as he teamed up with the Uncanny X-Men, fought against the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, and even inspired Rogue in a startling turning point towards her journey towards heroism!

In ROM (1979) #17-18, Rom and the X-Men are searching for the offspring of a Dire Wraith and a human, a creature known as Hybrid – which Cerebro has detected as a mutant! But as they clash over their target, Rom gets a taste of his own medicine courtesy of Kitty Pryde! Then, in ROM (1979) #31-32, the Galadorian hero battles Mystique’s villainous mutant team — including future X-Men stalwart, Rogue – before teaming up with them for a rematch against Hybrid!

Throughout the year, Marvel Tales celebrates the legacy of the House of Ideas with amazing collections of classic issues, re-presented with brand-new covers! Check out Nick Bradshaw’s new ROM AND THE X-MEN: MARVEL TALES #1 cover below, also available as a virgin variant cover, and pick up this rare chapter in Rom AND X-Men history this December!

I get the affinity for ROM, he had a greater than most run I'm comics and took part on .a y crossovers of the day. But Crystar is another story. 11 issue comic run and never saw the light of day again until that one fan who could make it happen got that turd a Legend figure.

Now, ROM surely needs a Legend figure too. Or at least a Legends scale figure.

Ah yes, Rom, Crystar, Sectaurs, Micronauts....Micronauts were my favorite. Mike Golden's art was just that- golden!

Crystar is definitely a interest for me, and so is Rom---I kinda like the odd-ball periphery Marvel stuff, like the Human Fly ( stuntman) and characters like Machine Man. Really hoping we do see Rom in ML.

AndyL - 2023-09-22 @ 4:18 pm

I've been seeing people calling for years for a Rom ML and never have I actually thought it was possible until now. I'm excited. Then again people have been calling for a new Giant Man for years and we can see how that's going.

Love to see this, I really enjoyed ROM when I was younger, I just hope as some have mentioned this might lead to us getting a Legend of him, and yes Crystar would be another thing I'd like in the future.

Rom and Crystar are high on my want list of Marvel Legends. Does anyone know if there are complications with the rights, due to being toy tie-in characters?

I do believe Crystar is Marvel through and through but Rom is mainly Hasbro.
