Considering James Rhodes’ impressive resume and references (Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, the President …), to say nothing of his multibillion-dollar armor, you’d think he would have a pretty great day job. However, as the video “War Machine at the Office” demonstrates, he faces many of the same problems other nine-to-fivers do: boorish co-workers, an insufferable boss and a troublesome photocopier.

‘Lighter, leaner, and more adaptable’ War Machine coming in Iron Man 2.0

War Machine

M.O.D.O.K. isn’t the only one getting a New Year’s makeover at the House of Ideas, it seems … Marvel.com has posted Barry Kitson’s redesign of War Machine for the upcoming Iron Man 2.0 comic.

“Rhodey’s new armor, an upgrade to become Iron Man 2.0, emphasizes stealth, recon, infiltration, and combat readiness when boots hit the ground. The War Machine of tomorrow is lighter, leaner, and more adaptable, with the ability to bulk up and fortify for direct confrontations favoring strength over slyness. And it packs quite a few surprises when things get really hairy,” the book’s editor, Alejandro Arbona, told the site.

You can see some additional sketches at Marvel.com. Iron Man 2.0 #1, written by Morning Glories/T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents writer Nick Spencer and drawn by Kitson, comes out Jan. 19.
