Raiders of The Lost Torpedo Suite

I haven't see much info. out there in the ROM cyberspace cult following about matters having to do with the Torpedo. The Torpedo suite was presumably destroyed in a fire sometime after Brock Jones was slain by the dire wraiths. The wraith who took Jone's identity was in turn killed by some Skrulls who then torched the Jones home.
It turns out some years later the Torpedo suite is being worn by an Asian woman who at one point was part of the New Warriors team under the name of Turbo. Turbo, along with the rest of The New Warriors would come to fight the
dire wraith "queen" by the name of Volx who has traveled to Earth for revenge in regards to Earth's victory over the wraiths as seen in ROM # 65. However, Volx looks more like something from John Carpenter's brilliant remake of The Thing then what we remember of the wraiths from the 80's. I dunno maybe it's because she's supposed to be the queen or something. For a more complete background of Volx and Turbo go to:

Funny thing is they refer to the Torpedo suite as The Torpedo "armor". Which is funny cause in this picture to the left the suite looks more like something that was spray painted on her. Not that I'm complaining mind you!


  1. I remember that Torpedo died at the hands of the wraiths and his suit was taken by the wraiths. I don't recall whatever happened to it.

  2. Hey Tony, welcome aboard. i'm guessing Siskoid's advice helped out some? anyways, that link in the posting leads to a page that more or less explains what happened to the Torpedo suite. rather it makes sense or not to you is another matter.
