War Machine #20, by Dan Abnett and Fred Haynes
We end the week with a lesser known costume change, as Rhodey dons an alien symbiote-like (though not as evil) costume called war-wear. This came after Rhodey lost his classic War Machine armor traveling through time fighting nazis. This only lasted about 5 issues before the series was cancelled, and then Onslaught and Heroes Reborn/Return quietly hit the reset on Rhodey getting back his original armor. In many ways this costume was similar to what Tony has now, where it's a part of the wearer and appears out of nowhere and had new weapons.
So that's it for the first iteration of '90s costume week, I'll be looking at doing the '80s and the '00s down the road, or maybe come back with more '90s costumes.
