Colonel James Rupert Rhodes, commonly known as Rhodey, is a U.S. military officer and jet pilot in the U.S. Air Force. He is the best friend of Tony Stark and the liaison between Stark Industries and the military in the Department of Acquisitions, when Stark was kidnapped by the Ten Rings, Rhodes led the mission to rescue his friend. He is known as War Machine when wearing his heavily-armed battlesuit but his alias was temporarily re-branded to Iron Patriot during the Extremis incident.
Having shown his worth during the fight against Ultron in Sokovia during which he battled an army of Ultron Sentries, Rhodes became a member of the new Avengers under the leadership of Captain America. However Rhodes soon came into conflict with his team-mates when he and Tony Stark sided with Thaddeus Ross on the Sokovia Accords. This eventually led to a full-blown conflict between the heroes, with Rhodes joining Iron Man's side. During a battle with Captain America's team, Rhodes was badly injured and nearly paralyzed from Vision's friendly-fire attack, forcing him to retire from hero work.
