Which Comics Inspired Don Cheadle's 'Iron Man 2' Performance As War Machine?

Yesterday, Sam Rockwell explained how comics influenced his "Iron Man 2" character, but how about his co-star, Don Cheadle?

MTv News asked Cheadle about the source material that informed his portrayal of James "Rhodey" Rhodes, a.k.a. War Machine, in the blockbuster sequel, and the actor offered up some thoughts about what he took from the stack of comics Marvel sent his way.

"[I took] something from all of them, because the character over the whole arc changes quite a bit," said Cheadle when asked which War Machine stories, if any, specifically informed his performance. "They both do."

"Ultimately in the comic book lore, War Machine takes over for Iron Man for a while, so I don't know," he added. "It all just kind of went into the soup and then you still have to show up on set and bring something."
