First appearance


After an earlier armor was damaged in battle with the Masters of Silence, Stark donned an armor with more weaponry, which he called the War Machine. It was further modified as the "JRXL-1000" for James Rhodes, who started using this armor alongside his new alias, War Machine.

James Rhodes (Earth-616)

Original Armor

The newest version of ther armor was partially destroyed during a battle against Whirlwind and the Melter where Rhodes faked his death to help Tony Stark in a plan to defeat the Mandarin, involving Rhodes into becoming the new and mysterious Iron Man.


It possesses various weapons: repulsors, unibeam (added for Rhodes), twin chain gun, laser blade, wrist-mounted flamethrower.

The shoulder pack can deploy Gatling guns, a box rocket launcher, a pulse cannon, and a plasma cannon.

Various munitions are available: depleted uranium, high explosive, concussion, thermite, tear gas, tracer, flare, smoke, anti-tank, anti-ship, flame, fire suppressant, radio repeater or sub-nuke.

Several non-lethal options were later added: baton, sabot, and rubber slugs for the cannon, concussion pulses from the hands, and strobes via the unibeam. [1]

This model has more plating and shielding than the typical Iron Man armor. A poly-carbonate coating further improves the surface. An additional poly-prismatic coating was temporarily used to counter the Living Laser's powers. It presumably retained the photon shield from previous armors.

A new version of the armor equipped two chainsaw in the forearms.
