Rom has been grounded by a Wraith spell and, since his neutralizer is the power source for Forge's giant orbital space weapon designed to banish all Wraiths from the planet, Wraith-World continues to merge with earth; A host of Dire Wraiths gather around Rom to gloat but their victory is short lived as Rick Jones has called in the cavalry; The heroes of earth battle the Wraith horde and free Rom; He flies to Forge's space weapon and uses it, not only banishing Wraiths from earth but also destroying Wraith-World completely, ending the Dire Wraith threat to the universe for all time.
