Iron Man 2.0, aka War Machine, teams up with Iron Fist and Fat Cobra to deal with the dark Asgardian Worthy in their chapter of Fear Itself.

Iron Man 2.0 #5

It makes some kind of sense that Marvel's War Machine comic would be branded Iron Man 2.0, since the character showed up in the Iron Man 2 movie, but it still feels like this title would be easily overlooked as another Tony Stark book if one wasn't paying enough attention.  However, slapping Fat Cobra on the cover should grab some eyeballs.

Tying in to the events of Fear Itself, the dark Asgardian gods are invading the Earth, with a lot of hammer-wielding powerhouses dubbed The Worthy by a god of fear known as The Serpent.  James Rhodes' armor won't be enough to stop these jerks alone, but luckily, he'll have the help of Iron Fist and the Immortal Weapons – aka Fat Cobra and the martial arts gang.

Check out Ariel Olivetti's preview art from Iron Man 2.0 #5, written by Nick Spencer and due out in May, featuring a cover by Salvador Larroca.
