IRON MAN #281-283 (1992)

Last issue, we learned Tony Stark’s armor was making him sick.  In these issues, we see his competitors, Hydra, Yakuza Samurai, etc., plotting to jump into the breach.

As a result, his armor is damaged and he transitions to…

War Machine.  Except he’s not.

He takes it for a test drive against some beefed up mandroids.

By #284, he’s back to his regular “Iron Man” logo.  Also during this story, while Tony is sick, Jim Rhodes takes an active role and gets a job offer from Nick Fury.

And so the seeds are sown for a War Machine comic starring Rhodey.
