    I am not a huge fan of franchise crossovers.

Yet a lot of the fun of ROM was his interaction with the greater Marvel Universe, no?

IDW's universe would be GI Joe and the Transformers. Have these two met each other yet?

    That being said, if ROM does arrive on Earth in IDW and they establish that it IS the same Earth/universe as GI Joe, then they could recreate the old marvel era of ROM starting with ROM #51 when he made the whole Earth aware of the war with the Wraiths and how because of their recent actions ROM will now have his neutralizer set on KILL mode rather then banishment. After that SHIELD became involved and worked with ROM.

Or maybe GI Joe could keep the secret. GI Joe is analogous to SHIELD so some of the old Marvel fun could certainly be rekindled.

    Soon after came the mutant FORGE and his own neutralizer he built after looking at ROM's and how he built a power booster for ROM's and more...

    As to crossing to the Transformers, presuming that this new ROM's neutralizer does in fact nullify any energy source it hits then he could too easily shut down any Transformer he blasts.

One of my gripes about ROM back in the day was that his weapon was too powerful and too final. This was similar to my gripe about Roy Thomas's original version of Warlock, who could devolve any sapient being to a prior, non-sapient stage of its biological evolution. Too powerful. Too final.

I'm hoping the new neutralizer will be less powerful and less final in what it does.
