Issue(s): ROM #15
Now, Steve has actually been replaced with a Dire Wraith. But that's not why ROM is here. He's motivated by jealousy.
But ROM does start to suspect that Steve is a Wraith.
However, despite that ecstatic look when ROM first arrived, she doesn't want ROM attacking Steve.
Luckily, though, the real Steve escaped from the Dire Wraiths when reporter Ace o'Connor was thrown in with him.
Ace sacrifices herself so that Steve can escape. And when he arrives, he shoots the fake version.
This convinces the people in attendance at the wedding that ROM is not a killer robot, and that the story of the Dire Wraiths is true.
Don't worry about that dumb decision to not analyze the humans above. They insist that he scan them next issue.
This is a turning point in the series. The people of Clairton now believe and support ROM.

Really bad news for people hoping that some day ROM would come home to the Marvel Universe... seems he's being properly absorbed into the "Hasbro-verse" that IDW is launching
And it looks like Hasbro has laid claim to the Dire Wraiths concept as well, so I don't know what impact this will have on the ability for Marvel writers to refer back to/draw from these concepts.
Not very interested in a shared universe that is JUST toy tie-ins!

Darkstar is a Dire Wraith right now, correct?
