Marvel sold the rights? I thought Rom was one of those obscure characters people wanted to see in a future Guardians of the Galaxy sequel...

ROM was a action figure whose company licensed it's rights for a comic tie to Marvel.

Like some of their licensed material they were publishing at the time it seemed to take place in the regular Marvel continuity. Years after Marvel actually owns the rights to all the aspects of the ROM: Space Knight franchise which they created which is pretty much everything bar the character himself.

Basically the entire mythology and supporting characters are all owned by Marvel but they can't use ROM himself. It's a strange set up but that's how it is.
