30 Years Ago - "Rhodey" Rhodes Is Iron Man

Tony Starks's drinking ultimately required Rhodey to become Iron Man 
in February 1983's issue #170 of  The Invincible Iron Man.

When I got into comics a bit later in 80's - Tony was mostly recovered - but Rhodey was still 
frequently piloting the suit. They were kind of like co-Iron Men. And of course Tony was tinkering 
with various next-gen tech that would lead to War Machine, as well as his own upgraded suits.
