    With the recent revelation that War Machine "- with Don Cheadle playing the part of James Rhodes -- does, indeed, appear in "Iron Man 2," this book is set to gain a little more recognition. Of course, the fact that Francesco Mattina's cover looks like a "Transformers" movie poster is sure to help sell a few extra copies of this book. If you miss the West Coast Avengers, do yourself a favor and pick this book up. Of course, you don't have to be a fan of the West Coast Avengers to enjoy a tech-fueled explosives test centered on one man's quest to right wrongs. Read Full Review
