An Intriguing Opening--Iron Man 2.0 #1
James Rhodes gets another solo comic, this time as a military operative. Can the man who writes T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents bring us more dynamite? Well, this certainly is a good start.
Opening as if it were another Iron Man comic with Tony Stark fighting some D-list villain, things don't seem too special. However, when Rhodes shows up and kicks the baddies tuckus you can tell this is going to be a War-Machine focused comic. Spencer writes some nice dialogue between Rhodes and Stark that tells you right away they are good friends who talk about anything.
3.5 out of 5 stars.
