Wraith War (1984-1985) Reading Order

Countless years ago, the Celestials manipulated the Skrull gene pool and, among other things, created an offshoot of Deviant Skrulls called Dire Wraiths. These warped and murderous magic-users were chased from their birth world and found a new home in the Dark Nebula, naming their planet Wraithworld.

Two hundred years ago, the Dire Wraiths invaded Galador, only to get their saggy backsides kicked across the universe by the Spaceknights. – technologically upgraded Galadorians who then spread out across the galaxies, attempting to halt the Dire Wraiths efforts to invade other planets. One such cyborg Spaceknight, Rom, came to Earth to end the threat they posed to our world. With the Wraiths using body-snatching methods to disguise themselves as human, most people perceived Rom as a rampaging alien was more robot than man after his centuries-long mission.

Rom would encounter many of Earth’s heroes during his time on the planet. He made friends with serial-sidekick Rick Jones and found love with Brandy Clark who was so enamoured with Rom that she agreed to take the role of the Spaceknight – Starshine to be with him and aid him on his mission. But the Dire Wraiths are ready to move the final plans toward endgame…

Over in Westchester, Rogue of the X-Men recently rescued SHIELD agent Michael Rossi from double-agents when he found out Sebastian Shaw – the head of the Sentinel programme, Project: Wideawake – is also a member of the Hellfire Club‘s nefarious Inner Circle. During the rescue mission (when Rogue was completely taken over by her ‘Carol Danvers’ persona to save the real Danvers’ old pal, Rossi) she was framed for the murder of double-agent Price. Now’s she’s wanted by the government for a crime she didn’t commit…
