The tables have been turning in the Marvel Universe ever since Norman Osborn’s rise to power at the end of Secret Invasion, and this has been seen clearly in the pages of Marvel’s War Machine series where James Rhodes has been quick to oppose those changes. War Machine has been, in effect, committing one-man acts of terrorism against the United States.
Now, the plot thickens as pieces of an ominous story line involving the classic Iron Man villain Ultimo begin to connect together—leading Rhodey back to the U.S. and in for a confrontation with Tony Stark himself. But it doesn’t stop there — Norman Osborn, the Iron Patriot, also wants to have a word or three with War Machine. Apparently what series writer Greg Pak and several artists including Leonardo Manco have in store for War Machine is anyone’s guess but the ride so far has been bumpy enough that one can only imagine how things can go from bad to worse.
