But knowing that the world expects Iron Man to always be available, he gave the armor to Rhodes to fight in his place.
For some time, Rhodes used the new armor to destroy various cells of the terrorist group Ten Rings around the world as War Machine. Since Rhodes was on the other side of the world, he couldn't help the Avengers in their battle in time.
Although when he was able to get to New York , he found the Chitauri defeated and the Avengers all gathered inside a shawarma restaurant where Stark invited him to join them. James Rhodes re-branded as Iron Patriot. Roughly about a year later, James Rhodes was still using the suit to serve the government. Instead of acting under the violent guise of War Machine, Rhodes was given the name "Iron Patriot" to boost morale with the American people.
Iron Patriot locates some Ten Rings members. When the Mandarin supposedly killed Thomas Richards on live television, President Matthew Ellis sent Rhodes to find and capture him; however, he was lead into a trap with his suit being immobilized by an Extremis soldier. Locking himself into the suit, Rhodes was taken to a secret A.
Once removed, an Extremis soldier Eric Savin , took control of the suit and flew it to Air Force One where he pretended to be Rhodes and accompanied Ellis on board. Eric Savin controls the Iron Patriot armor. When the time came, Savin used the Patriot Armor to kill all bodyguards and place Ellis inside the suit. Killian then used a remote control to pilot it back to him, with Ellis captive inside. Once arriving back to Killian, he locked Ellis inside the suit, strung it up from a crane and intended to burn him alive on live television.
Rhodes and Stark, however, infiltrated the base with Rhodes rescuing Ellis, taking control of his armor and flying him to safety. Sometime afterwards, the name was reverted back to War Machine and the American-inspired motif was removed, returning to a darker suit. Iron Man and War Machine fighting Ultron. He donned the entire armor during the final battle against Ultron in Sokovia , fighting the Ultron Sentries and giving air support to the Helicarrier. After the battle, he used it for superhero activities after becoming part of the official roster for the Avengers.
As it was originally Tony Stark 's Mark II armor, the original kept the icing flaw and the poor power distribution, despite its formidable arsenal. The new model is noticeably more streamlined, and was built from the start as a military tool and weapon, rather than an unarmed prototype. It has weapon-grade repulsors, enhanced thrusters and the standard function of augmenting the strength and durability of its user.
Additionally, just like the Iron Man armors following the Mark V and the Mark VI , the Iron Patriot and by extension, War Machine armor was designed to be able to open and close up from head to toe and allow the user to seamlessly step in and out of the suit at will. However, the suit had the opposite weakness of the Mark I: extreme heat. This was shown when an Extremis soldier applied heat to its chest, causing it to shut down.
Later, as soldiers in the Mandarin's compound attempted to no avail to open it, Aldrich Killian applied heat to its chest. The heat intensity was so great that the suit ejected Rhodes from itself for his safety, when it determined it could no longer protect him from it.

Warmachine is a tabletop steampunk  wargame produced by Privateer Press. The game is played with white metal and plastic miniatures manufactured by Privateer Press representing military characters from the Iron Kingdoms setting. Battles are fought between warcasters from rival nations, the large steam-powered warjacks that the warcasters control, and troops consisting of humans and fantasy races. A compatible companion game involving the savage factions is named Hordes.
