ROM (1979) (#1-75) (MARVEL) #3 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Rom (1979) #3
"Firefall!" is written by Bill Mantlo and drawn by Sal Buscema with cover art by Frank Miller. To S.H.I.E.L.D., the U.S. military and everyone else human, the Spaceknight Rom is a murderous alien who fries men alive with his mysterious Neutralizer. However, these "men" are nothing more than disguised Dire Wraiths, villainous demons from space, who Rom sends into Limbo (a process that looks like he's immolating helpless humans). Only the lovely Brandy Clark, whom Rom saved from a Dire Wraith attack, believes him. But because of her brief contact and rapport with the heroic cyborg, there are many who want very much to interrogate her. Suffice to say, Brandy's life will never be the same.

Meanwhile, the U.S. military recruits and trains the war hero turned criminal Stryker to wear the capture Spaceknight armor of Karas, Rom's friend. Calling himself Firefall because of the suit's ability to wield the Living Fire of Galador, Stryker starts out to find Rom and end what he thinks is his murder spree. Rom has come upon a Dire Wraith nest in the West Virginia hill country, where his foes are building a receptor dish capable of transporting thousands of their kind across the far reaches of space to Earth. Rom must stop them before they activate the transporter...but Firefall stands in his way!
