Marvel Teases War Machine's Resurrection in July's Iron Man #2

James Rhodes, also known as War Machine, died early into Marvel Comics' 2016 crossover Civil War II during a confrontation with Thanos. However, people joke about death in comics for a reason: It's rarely permanent. The new solicitation text for Dan Slott and Valerio Schiti's Tony Stark: Iron Man #2 teases the possibility of Rhodey returning to life.

You can read the solicit for Tony Stark: Iron Man #2 and see Alexander Lozano's cover for the issue below.

There's a good chance that Rhodey won't return to life in this particular issue, so expect his resurrection -- if it does happen -- to take a while. It's also entirely possible that this arc won't end with Rhodey's return or that the character will reappear in some as of yet unknown form. Rhodey's return will also likely have an effect on Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, as she was engaged in a romantic relationship with him at the time of his death.

Tony Stark: Iron Man #1 will arrive in June, with Tony Stark: Iron Man #2 likely hitting shelves in July.
