One of the worst things a book can do is make you feel as if you missed something. That's exactly what Ales Kot does here. Other than Rhodey we don't know these characters and the writer does next to nothing to learn about them or their motivations. This seemed like walking into a movie theater after the film had been playing for an hour. Rhodey explains his motivations somewhat but we're thrown into the action without any exposition. The outcome was pretty obvious and matching up another armored villain here is a weak story choice. The art is the only thing keeping this from a lower score. Gary Brown did a good job but would be better suited for a more street level story. Love to see him do Daredevil or Batman. Overall, a pretty big miss.
