The Return of…Rom the Space Knight?!

A couple of days ago Comic Book Resources posted some wonderful artwork from Bryan Hitch (The Authority, The Ultimates) for the upcoming Marvel Comics event entitled ‘The Age of Ultron’.

Follow the link provided up top for a clearer image of the panels but I’m going to assume this wall of photos are the heroes who didn’t survive Ultron taking over the entire world and to be honest I’m not sure if this series is set solely in the Ultimates universe or regular continuity.

You might be wondering what this might have to do with anything Retroist related, right? Well, Eagle-eyed readers like those over at Comics Alliance spotted…Rom the Space Knight!

Comic Alliance also reported last week that Hasbro has filed for ROM trademark…so could this not only mean we will see ROM toys on shelves again? Or better yet perhaps the murky legal waters surrounding the case will be cleared and we can finally get our hands on those wonderful Bill Mantlo Marvel Comics stories of old?

Let us hope so!
