  I liked Candido's inks on this.

  The Secret Wars reference helps make sense of why no super-groups were reacting to the previous issues of ROM, although it might have helped if they were a little closer to this point in the Order.

  Sadly, it would take a global threat like this for the nations of our world to unite in this matter. And I still wouldn't trust Donald Trump to be able to unite people either.
