Tony Stark and James Rhodes[src]

James Rhodes' Leg Braces were created by Tony Stark in order to restore James Rhodes' ability to walk, after Rhodes' spine was shattered during the Clash of the Avengers.

History

This section requires expansion

During the Clash of the Avengers, Vision accidentally shoots a laser beam at James Rhodes' suit while he's flying, disabling its Arc Reactor. Unable to fly, Rhodes enters a free fall from high altitude. Despite Falcon and Iron Man's best efforts, they're unable to catch him mid-air and he hits the ground. Even though the suit's protection saves him from death, but he still suffers from a spine injury that paralyzes his legs. Stark later creates a pair of leg braces that allow Rhodes to walk and engage in other activities fluently, and also integrates a similar functionality into all of his friend's suit designs.[1]
