Synopsis
With all of New York out hunting for a killer alien robot, Power Man and Iron Fist try to sneak Rom through the city as they head for the Baxter Building. They break into the building and survive the security measures long enough to meet up with the FF. After explaining the situation to Reed, he puts Rom on a spaceship headed to his home planet of Galador. Meanwhile, Wraiths return to Clairton.
