Issue(s): ROM #69
ROM detects the signals of two Spaceknights, Scanner and Seeker, trapped in Ego's core. He fights his way through Ego's usual bio-defenses and anti-bodies...
...but eventually finds that Ego has been absorbing Dire Wraiths.
Unable to watch them suffer being digested in Ego's stomach, ROM banishes them to Limbo. This makes Ego mad.
But ROM's neutralizer is surprisingly effective against him...
...so he releases the Spaceknights and takes off.
The MCP lists Scanner and Seeker as appearing only in flashback in this issue, but i think that's a mistake. They're shown in present-tense scenes at the end of this issue. I believe this is their first present day appearance. We don't learn too much about them yet except that they were pursuing the Dire Wraiths that made the mistake of setting up base on Ego.
As usual when a normal-sized character encounters Ego, you don't really get to see the full majesty of the living planet, but Ditko and Russell, who i think have been gelling better as their run goes on, do a decent job.
