Iron Man Reveals the Dark Reason He Created One Iconic MCU Armor

Invincible Iron Man #7 spoilers follow.Iron Man has now revealed why he constructed the War Machine armor for his best friend James Rhodes,

and it's not what fans expected. Iron Man and his old friend and partner James Rhodes AKA War Machine must work together

to keep Stark's innovations out of the hands of nefarious actors in order to reclaim control of his stolen technology.

When their plan fails, Tony is forced to face the truth about the War Machine legacy and accept his latest failure.

Tony makes the revelation in Invincible Iron Man #7 by Gerry Duggan, Juan Frigeri, and Bryan Valenza.

When Iron Man loses control of Stark Unlimited to human supremacist Feilong, he acquires access to decades of Tony's efforts,

including the information behind his Iron Man suits. Feilong is determined to weaponize Tony's technology,

first against the X-Men by producing more Stark Sentinels, and then against all superheroes unless Tony and Rhodey are able to destroy their arsenal.
