Romnar's substance absorbing a guard History

(The Incredible Hulk Annual I#1 (fb)) - Romnar was an Inhuman scientist, born centuries before the generation that gave birth to Blackantor Boltagon and his brother Maximus.

    Romnar's experiments were so dangerous that he was observed by the Inhuman government. After he had created a lethal shining substance, which he had only just started to study, he was arrested. While his captors restrained him, he tried to warn those who had touched the substance. It expanded, absorbing a man, grew and continued growing, absorbing energy from everything it touched. Only after the substance had destroyed thousands of lives in Attilan was it finally contained. 

(The Incredible Hulk Annual I#1) - Centuries later, Maximus found the chamber where Romnar's forbidden substance was hidden, entrapped in a special box. With the help of the Hulk, he freed the box, built a handgun which contained the deadly substance and used it to blackmail the Great Refuge. He was stopped by Hulk and Black Bolt.



Comments: Created by Gary Friedrich (writer), Marie Severin (penciler), Syd Shores and the Marvel Bullpen (inks).

   Romnar's fate was unrevealed. He probably died from the destructive effects of his lethal substance.

   In The Incredible Hulk Annual I#1, the Refuge is never named. It is reported to be in the Alps and that Black Bolt traveled from afar to reach it! Several hypotheses can be drawn from this:
