History: (All-New X-Men II#13 (fb) – BTS) – As a teenager, Romeo realized he was gay and he joined the wrestling team because he had a crush on the wrestlers. After flirting with one boy for three months, he finally kissed him but the wrestler punched Romeo in the mouth. Romeo dropped out of school the next day and got his G.E.D. A few years later, the wrestler came out of the closet and tracked Romeo down to apologize. Romeo found himself interested in running, gaming and even pick-pocketing for a time but he eventually quit.

(Spider-Woman VI#10 (fb) – BTS) – After undergoing Terrigenesis, Romeo discovered his ability to manipulate emotions. He was recruited by Crystal's team of Inhumans (including Naja, Flint, Grid and Gorgon) to seek out new Inhumans and calm them down so they could adjust to their powers.

(Spider-Woman VI#10) – Outside Tucson, Arizona, Romeo arrived with Crystal's team to help calm down a new reality-manipulating Inhuman, Doris Bray.
(All-New X-Men II#13 (fb) – BTS) – Romeo was sent to Miami by Crystal to find a newly hatched Inhuman. (All-New X-Men II#13) – At a gay club in Miami, Romeo flirted with the time-displaced Bobby Drake. When the new Inhuman, a monstrous moth creature, revealed itself, Bobby, as Iceman, joined Oya and Genesis in fighting it until Romeo could calm it down. Crystal's team arrived to pick Romeo up and he snuck Iceman's phone out of his pocket to put his own phone number in it. He asked Bobby to call him sometime. (All-New X-Men II#17 (fb) – BTS) – Iceman and Romeo began spending more time together but Iceman seemed hesitant to make the relationship more physical. (All-New X-Men II#17 (fb) – BTS) – Romeo and Iceman had a few dates together, going running together and riding on Iceman's ice slides, but Iceman still seemed hesitant to kiss Iceman. On one date, they joined their friends at the water park, where Iceman met Romeo's Inhuman friend Sasha. (All-New X-Men II#17) – When the X-Men attacked New Attilan, Romeo was kept in his room, as non-combatants were to be kept out of combat. Iceman broke into Romeo's room and finally kissed him, and Iceman said he wasn't siding with the mutants. Romeo asked if they could just leave the city and they skated away on Iceman's ice slide. (All-New X-Men II#19) – At a motor lodge motel, Romeo flirted with Iceman while they started the grill for dinner, interacting with the X-Men (Wolverine/Laura Kinney, time-displaced Angel, time-displaced Cyclops, time-displaced Beast, time-displaced Cyclops, Oya, Genesis). Romeo made them tacos then they had a dance party. (Iceman III#1) – Romeo and Iceman went on a date, interacting with the older Iceman, who made bad dad jokes as they left. (Iceman III#8 – BTS) – Romeo stopped texting Iceman back after a time, distressing Iceman.

CLARIFICATIONS:
Romeo has no known connections to:


"moth Inhuman"

(All-New X-Men II#13) – A newly hatched Inhuman emerged from his cocoon with green and yellow fur, huge fangs and large wings, as well as antennae that could discharge electrical energy. Disoriented, the creature seemingly attacked a crowd at a gay club in Miami and the X-Men (time-displaced Iceman, Oya, Genesis) responded with force until Romeo of the Inhumans calmed the moth-man down. The Inhuman was taken aboard the R.I.V. by Crystal, Gorgon, Flint, Naja and Grid.

Sasha

(All-New X-Men II#17 (fb)) – An Inhuman living in New Attilan, Sasha was a green-skinned lizard-like girl capable of generating electric blasts who was friends with Romeo. He took Sasha with him to hang out with a young team of X-Men and she confessed to the time-displaced Iceman that Romeo had feelings for him.

(All-New X-Men II#17) – During a conflict with the X-Men, the Inhumans defended New Attilan against the invading mutants. Sasha saw Iceman and panicked, letting him pass to Romeo's room.
