The Return of ROM: The Spaceknight?

The Return of ROM: The Spaceknight?

It has been teased by Marvel many times before, but it appears the famous Spaceknight might finally be returning to comics or as a toy.



Source: Hasbro maybe bringing back Rom The Spaceknight

Ever since the famous series by Bill Mantlo (writer) and Sal Buscema (artist) ended in 1986, fans have always clamoured for the character's return. However, issues always arose due to who exactly owned the rights to the character (Parker Brothers had originally owned them after Marvel lost the rights once the series ended). 

 

But now Toy Ark has learned Hasbro (which now owns Parker Brothers) has recently filed a patent on the name. Keep in mind as well Hasbro also distributes the Marvel toylines: Marvel Universe and Legends. Could this move signal the return of the character to Marvel and even more a possible release of the much celebrated comic book run?

 

Stay tuned as the Outhouse will report the latest developments.
