This Throwback Thursday I think most of our readers will remember when this character was introduced and has become quite popular in the MCU. I remember thinking this new guy won’t last, who calls themselves that?
That character is none other than War Machine, who made his debut in Iron Man #281 back in 1992. Somehow the name has stuck and the character has turned into a very important character, mostly with ties to Tony Stark and the Avengers.
With such a bigger role in the MCU nowadays, you can still find these for fairly cheap for his first appearance.
I think the market swung for the next issue in Iron Man issue #282 where War Machine made the cover appearance and is considered the first full appearance.
If you ask me it’s not the greatest cover art but nowadays it’s an instant recognizable classic.
Maybe since Peter in Far From Home keeps talking about who will be the next Iron Man?
He’s not a genius but he’s basically in an Iron Man suit, knows how to use it and he’s actually trained military as well.
Who could be the next Iron Man? We already have him if you ask me. His name is Jim Rhodes.
