Full Details

The story picks up right after the events of Revolution #5, See Issue 1

The Joes depart from the battleground leaving Rom and the Transformers to return to their duties. Beach Head appears to have his own agenda against the new aliens threatening the Earth and is prepared to wage his own battles with the Wraiths and any other invader.

Rom continues to battle the Wraiths now that they are leaderless. He destroys two careless Wraiths who kill and take over humans repeatedly, first they are street musicians, then a tourist couple and then a cab driver falls to their rampage.

Rom returns to the home of Darby Mason to help her rid herself of the Wraith infection. He is too late as she turns right in front of him and the Wraith taking her over battles Rom. Rom wants to spare Camilla if he can. For a moment Camilla regains control of her body but only for a moment. The Wraith renews its attack and Rom throws the creature to the ground. He is about to use his neutralizer when he is interrupted by two new Solstar Knights who encourage him to end the battle quickly. They have come as reinforcements to help Rom wipe the planet clean of Wraiths.
