Why is War Machine getting the shaft?

#1 Posted by Jonny Ruckus (61 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm a die hard WM and when I friend told me he was coming back I decided to jump back into comics. It was great seeing him in Avengers: Initiative for the first 2 issues but now he's never in sight! if he is there he's just getting treated like a bitch.

Am I the only one noticing it?

I'm afraid with this whole Secret Invasion they're gonna kill him off. Although I saw the cover for Avengers: Initiative #12 and WM and Iron Man are on the cover.

What's your opinions?

I think they're racist, that's why he's in the background.

Aw man! Why does Rhodes gotta be the token hero! I thought that's why we have Cage!?

It could be that War Machine is getting the love he deserves from the writer.

"War Machine is not that important of a character right now."

But then why bring him back? They brought him back for the Initiative and haven't touched him.

I'd rather see him than Pym any day.

See that? Colt isn't helping the racist point at all. "Not that important of a hero." Yeah, because you have the ultimate bias, hate monger. gives Colt the stink eye

I see him going against Tony or being the one to help tony change things for the better from what i have seen he will play a big role.

Marvel has Cage, David Alleyne in New X-Men, Patriot in Young Avengers, Alex Wilder and Xavin [It usually turns into a black girl//boy] in Runaways, amongst others.

It's not supposed to be a race thing dammit! lol

All I'm saying is is that I'm a WM fan. I read comics because of him. I'm back because of him. and now they stopped using him for NO REASON.

I think they're holding WM back because his costume is a carbon copy of Iron Man's, and it's just kind of boring to see two of the same costumes flying around. Same thing with Beta Ray Bill and Thor.

"You people are all on Cage's dikk like he is the only Black superhero who is active.Does Black Panther and Storm ring a bell.Cage and those two are the only ones doing anything because they are the only ones that have ever been relevant.I like War Machine but he's just a black Iron Man really."

eh? cage is leader of the new avengers which ic the only team following the true lines of being an avenger... and he's iron fists mate so i like him ;)

WM is awesome. But I like Iron Man better. But he better be active later on. Hes one of the best super heros ever.
