In Iron Man 3 you're literally going to have three people using the EXACT same weapon system. Rhodey makes sense in the movies being he's a pilot, and Stark wanted to bring him in on it anyway.

That said, I have yet to see anyone post a real reason why this should happen except it happens in the comics, and Fraction's Iron Man should be completely ignored because it's craptastic.

There is a very good reason why Pepper might get a suit of armor: She's being attacked by Tony's enemies yet again. Pepper is in the line of fire because of Tony, so it makes perfect sense that he would come up with a means to protect her from danger when he can't himself. You may not like that reasoning, but it's not a stretch by any means.

Fans usually whine when the films diverge from the comics, but in the case of War Machine and Rescue all the pissing and moaning is about developments that are canon. In Rhodey's case, he has had the armor in one form or another since the 1983. War Machine has three decades of history behind him and his existence is by no means controversial anywhere but on forums like this. Pepper got her suit more recently, but again it's part of comics lore that the filmmakers are going to mine for ideas.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
