quandongcrumble said: Hi I'm bugging you because your knowledge of the MCU tie in comics is better than mine: do you know how many versions of the War Machine armour there has been in the MCU? There's obviously the v1 in Iron Man 2, which Tony repairs pre-Avengers. I haven't been able to get my hands on the pre-Iron Man 3 comics, do you know if Rhodey gets a whole new War Machine in them?

There have been 2 War Machines in MCU

The first, yes, being the Iron Man armor turned War Machine in Iron Man 2. 

Then, between Iron Man 2 and 3 there was the Iron Man 3 prequel comics where Tony unveils an all new specifically made for Rhodey War Machine armor.  He even had it painted and decked out War Machine style.  

This is the same armor that ends up being repainted and rebranded as Iron Patriot in IM3.  

I think early IM3 stuff had ideas of using the War Machine armor a little before rebranding, as there were a lot of toys and concept art for it, but alas. it never made it to the actual movie.

for real tho.  if you think tony/rhodey not being shipped in general in fandom is a one off “people just see them as friends and that’s all and that’s sweet” and not as the larger issue it actually is. and that people in fandom, when side eyed, will say “i love them as friends” when meanwhile they’re erasing rhodey in every friend capacity to fill his role with bruce banner or loki or who the fuck even knows… you’re wrong.

man the whole point of these posts isn’t that platonic male friends can never call each other nicknames or that people HAVE to interpret tony and rhodey’s interactions as the homogayest of homogays. but it’s a fact that romantic shipping culture dominates the majority of fandoms, especially on tumblr, and most fans view character interactions though a romantic lens, and the fact that tony and rhodey’s friendship is far less likely to be interpreted that way is indicative of racist trends in shipping culture.

like this is a critique on how the friendship between these two characters would be prime material for that section of fandom (which thrives on interpreting queer subtext/queering the canon to view such friendships as romantic), but is ignored solely due to the fact that one of the characters is black. like if you see someone critiquing the fandom at large for this, it’s not because they think everyone personally should subscribe to their shipping tendencies. it’s because this is a trend that occurs in multiple fandoms constantly and it is absolutely due to internalized racism and it needs to be called out???? don’t just sit back and be like “oh well some people don’t have to see it as romantic” this isn’t about “some people” it’s about fandom as a whole.
