These threads usually get locked, I don't think you're allowed to make respect threads on this site. That being said, I'm a huge fan of War Machine.

It seems as though the threads only get locked depending on which mod sees them. I have seen respect threads locked for no reason other than the rules and I have seen some where the mods themselves contribute to them. In any case, War Machine is awesome!

The only part of his run that was good was the Secret Invasion tie-in(And even then, that was basically a Roland Emmerich movie) and the prequel with the part where he fed that guy to Polar Bears.  
 
Other than that it felt like a chore to read....

@black_panther18: What's up with people referring to Rhodey as a sidekick? He was never Iron Man's sidekick., an ally, yes, but I sidekick, no.

@daredevil21134: I guess people assume that way because he's Iron Man's main supporting character.

That's bs. Rhodey has cleaned up Stark's messes on so many different occasions. Aside from making the War Machine armor, Stark has never really trained Rhodey in anything as far as my knowledge goes. Rhodey was his own man from day one.

I will make my own War Machine respect thread.

Tag me when you do.

@oceanmaster21:

Here's a couple more:

His shields stop Valkyrie's sword from touching the armor. Dragonfang is an indestructible enchanted sword that has actually pierced Uru.

And here we see Rhodey tanking the same blast which made Red Hulk scream out in pain:

Tanks hits from Wonder Man:

He's stomped Ms. Marvel:

Tony Stark was actually injured. On doctor's orders, he wasn't to even be out of bed. He ends up flying away to get a negator pack to shut down War Machine with tech. You can see how long Carol lasts without his help.

He's also burnt and harmed Wonder Man's hand with his repulsor cannon on his shoulder:

Here are some more.

Durability:

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4Gallery image 5Gallery image 6Gallery image 7
Scan 1-2: Withstands energy blasts from Cable's futuristic laser gun; Scan 3: War Machine tanks hits from Cable. Through inner monologue, Cable states that he feels like he broke his hand punching Rhodey. Also important to note how Cable, who is from the future, is impressed by the durability of the suit and that they didn't have pollyalloys in this time period yet (which is a nod to how advanced Tony's tech is); Scan 4: War Machine is shot by an adamantium bullet and although it does pierce his armor, it absorbed most of the impact so the bullet didn't go deep; Scan 5: War Machine tanks the same piercing attack from a being which could hurt Thunderstrike; Scan 6: Tanks a punch from Thor. He even says in the dialogue that he'll prevail even if he has to wreck the armor (which he doesn't); Scan 7: Tanks a hit from Thor using Mjolnir.

Strength:

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4
Scan 1: Takes a man's head off; Scan 2: Punches Cable in the face hard enough to make him crawl away. Cable also admits that Rhodey is clearly holding back and that he had the firepower to kill him; Scan 3: Throws a panzer tank clear across the airbase yard into another one which shatters both of them; Scan 4: Flies in and hits Thor. The impact not only sends Thor flying through a fence, but it makes him grunt out in pain.

Repulsors:

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4
Scan 1: Blasts a hole through a man; Scan 2: Tears a tank apart like confetti; Scan 3: Repulsor cannon on his shoulder makes Thor scream out in pain; Scan 4: Knocks Thor off of a building.

Magnetism allows War Machine to catch and deflect Mjolnir with such force that the hammer hits Thor and makes him scream out in pain:

Outmaneuvers fighter pilots in jets and dodges missiles after they are fired:

Then proceeds to one-shot the planes.

War Machine's Weapons:

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4
Scan 1: Showcases his missiles and guns; Scan 2: Incendiary bombs; Scan 3-4: Knockout gas.
Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4
Scan 1: Missiles destroy watchtowers on a military base; Scan 2: Flamethrower and missile which destroys life within a 2 KM radius; Scan 3: Makes a weakened Thanos scream out in pain after blasting him (yes I know Thanos was dying here, weakened from the teleportation, etc., but he was still durable enough here to tank hits from powerhouses like Blue Marvel, Binary, Spectrum, She-Hulk, etc.); Scan 4: Accidentally launches a missile at She-Hulk which brings her to her knees leaving her struggling to speak and stand (Thanos is the one that KO'd her).

Keeps up with Living Lightning's speed:

He's as fast as lightning.

As many of you may know, Frank Castle recently acquired War Machine's old armor. To set up the feats below, I think it's important to note that he is not very skilled at using this armor:

No Caption Provided

Nameless fodder SHIELD agents are more skilled and better trained at using these suits than Frank is. Notice how this guy manages to completely outmaneuver and outskill Frank while he's in this suit. He ends up resorting to trickery and evasion because he cannot take a couple at the same time.

As expected, many superheroes were upset that Castle stole Rhodes' armor considering his death. Ms. Marvel is among the many who are angry and she confronts him first:

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4Gallery image 5Gallery image 6Gallery image 7Gallery image 8
The fight speaks for itself. He does pretty well for himself against her despite not being quite skilled in the armor. The fight ends when he blasts Carol point blank in the face which knocks them both out of the sky. He ends up recovering first and the last scan shows his A.I. telling him she left the scene. She ends up leaving to get reinforcements.

These are the heroes she decides to get help from:

No Caption Provided

Cannonball, Spider-Man, Captain America, Tigra, Thing, Hercules, Luke Cage, Spider Woman, Falcon, and Quake.

Here is how that turns out:

Once again, does pretty well for himself despite not trying to kill any of them. He ends up evading them.
