Iron Man 3 Prelude is a comic book published by Marvel Comics. The story is set before, during, and after the events of The Avengers.

Plot

Part 1

295

Tony Stark strips the Hammer Industries weapons off the War Machine armor and informs James Rhodes he'll never wear it again - because he's made him a new one. He insists Rhodes goes off playing Super Hero while Tony works on his own projects, and so, Rhodes attempts to get to the bottom of the Ten Rings terrorist organization.

Months go by, destroying one small terror cell after the other and not learning much. Until Rhodes arrives in Hong Kong, thinking he caught the Ten Rings off guard. He quickly dispatches the armed terrorists, but some of their hostages turn out to be undercover soldiers with stronger arms. Stark calls him from New York, asking for help with the Chitauri attack, but Rhodes is half a world away, and Stark reasons he and the gang can take care of it. Rhodes shrugs it off the attacks, until a Hammer battle tank arrives. He is warned against destroying it, as its nuclear core can go off. It fires an "ex-wife" missile at him - and for once, it works, shooting Rhodes down from the sky.

Part 2

After rebooting the system, Rhodes is able to get away just in time before the tank would have driven over him. Rhodes then decides to shoot the ground so the tank ends up in a hole in the ground. But the tank is able to vertically drive up and gets out of the hole. The Ten Rings terrorists now start to fire on Rhodes, forcing him to fly at a fixed position. The tank then shoots another Ex-Wife missile and the shockwave pushes Rhodes through an office building. Changing tactics, Rhodes flies all the way up and flies into the ground, creating a shockwave against the terrorist and by using a miniaturized Stark Sonic Cannon he is able to take the remaining terrorists out. But by doing so, the tank is able to get a clear shot and shoots at War Machine. Once again the tank attempts to drive over Rhodes, only this time Rhodes doesn't get away but simply picks the tank up. The tank is now set for self destruct and Rhodes quickly dispatches the tank in the ocean.

After the battle, Rhodey goes to New York City to help the Avengers, but he arrives too late and finds the Avengers in a shawarma shed. Meanwhile, the Mandarin receives a report about Hong Kong, explaining that although they failed to capture the War Machine armor they did manage to collect valuable information via all kinds of scans during the fight.
