The MK. VII armor was designed for James Rhodes to use as Iron Man, but Tony Stark was forced to don the armor himself to battle the Iron Monger. Reclaiming his role as Iron Man, Stark continued to wear the armor up until it was destroyed during the Armor Wars. While wearing this armor, James Rhodes still operated as a second Iron Man wearing the Mk. V armor (again up until he retired when it was destroyed during Armor Wars).
The armor was later worn by Michael o'Brien.
