    Iron Man and War Machine are eternally linked to one another and inevitably their adventures will cross once more. This issue doesn't set up any such crossover, but it does move the story of James Rhodes forward to be more approachable to pedestrian Iron Fans while at the same time preflighting the character to return to battle alongside his mentor. What role War Machine plays in the future of the Marvel Universe, and whether or not he maintains the alliances he established in this series will have to play out over the next few months. I suspect, given Rhodes interaction with Osborn in this issue, that there will be a reckoning of sorts, or at least a rematch, perhaps within the pages of "Siege." Read Full Review

    This arc has been drawn out and plugged with needless guest appearances. But as bad as it was, the final few pages of this issue show there might be better days on the horizon for War Machine readers, if not War Machine himself. I feel like I spend more time hoping this series will pick up steam than actually enjoying it. Once again, all I can do is hope that the next arc offers more of the War Machine readers have been led to expect. Read Full Review
