Quote1 It was the same guy who tried to wax me during that mess at the United Nations two days ago. It came down to him or me. I picked me.

The world needs a War Machine. Quote2
--James Rhodes (Earth-616)

Quote1 Sorry soldier... but Rhodey don't bleed. Quote2
--James Rhodes (Earth-616)
Quote1 But I can't do that now. Now with this brain, I can't forget anything. I see every rape and mutilation and murder simultaneously. Every second of every minute of every hour. I know every killer and every victim. And I literally can't live in my skin if I don't do something about it. Quote2
--James Rhodes (Earth-616)
