Rhodey *did* need a suit, because that was his comic-book story. Both as War Machine, *and* extensive runs as Iron Man himself while Tony was wasted in absentia. War Machine has been a major character in the Marvel Universe, and a popular enough one to get his own series. Rescue is a more recent invention, and far
from popular in comic-book fandom.
