Soon after he goes to investigate, the building loses all power. He manually opens the roof hatch and a comatose Rom falls on top of him. Ben takes the scalding hot Spaceknight to the medical lab where Rom's armor releases energy activating the equipment and reviving him. Rom tells the Thing about what has transpired since they last met and the history of the Firefall armor that the Dire Wraiths have reanimated.

We strive to provide the best possible product to our customers. However, all copies are only guaranteed nm- 9.2 or higher. A NM- 9.2 is categorized as a nearly perfect copy that looks brand new with only a few very minor defects. Acceptable minor defects on a NM copy include: an exceedingly small amount of spine stresses, very minor instances of denting (two or three at most), slight corner blunting, and minor (less than 1/8") bends without color breaks. We cannot guarantee 9.8 copies. In some cases, it is possible for a comic shipped brand new from the publisher to already be in less than near mint condition due to the way the comic was produced, shipped, stored, or handled prior to purchase.
