Yes, Spaceknight Saturdays are over, but there are still some loose ends to tie off. Rom and the Wraiths would appear here and there again, and I would be remiss if I didn't show you the entire story. Rom's last true appearance (not in flashback), for example. It occurs in Incredible Hulk #418, June 1994, written by Peter David with art by Gary Frank. Nice pedigree.
It's the one with Rick Jones' wedding to Marlo, Joe Fix-It's ex-girlfriend/porn star (Joe is the name the gray Hulk gave himself, if you didn't know). It's your standard superhero wedding, with the Impossible Man handing out bogus invitations to various villains, Northstar chatting up some dude at the bar, and Mephisto trying to collect the soul of the bride. The usual.
But it's the guest list that interests us here. The award for guests that came the longest distance goes to none other than Rom and Brandy!
She has a lot in common with Marlo, after all. She too was a hand-me-down from a superhero he was sidekick to. Brandy was his pity wife for the time he had the cancer, you remember. Awkwarrrrrrrd.
Waitaminit... shouldn't Brandy be pregnant? Like, all the time? They've got a planet to repopulate. I'll give Peter David the benefit of the doubt and say she's in her first trimester here.
Why invite Rom? Could it be because he used to be a silver dude?
Could be! More likely it's because the Sidekick-to-the-Stars wanted all his mentors there (Mar-Vell obviously excepted).
But Rom isn't the most unlikely character to show up. No, that prize must go to this girl here:
Peter David spoiling for a lawsuit. And her wedding gift is a brush. A BRUSH WITH DEATH, GET IT??!? GET IT!??! Peter David spoiling for a slap.
