War Machine Stars In Latest Marvel 101

I've noticed that the last few Marvel 101's have all focused on characters in the Cinematic Universe. Other than the initial introductions of the 101 series, everything after has been tied to something outside of comics. Winter Soldier, Hawkeye and the newest War Machine are all in Captain America: Winter Soldier while the Jane Foster Thor matched up to the character being introduced into the Contest of Champions game. They've also done Punisher who will be in the next Daredevil season and The Inhumans who play a big role in Marvel's Agents of Shield.

Does that mean the 101's are meant to introduce the film / television / game fans to the comic versions? If that was the case then why not include clips from the live action and games to better connect it? The only two they've done so far that aren't directly tied to something in another medium are Nova and Ms. Marvel.

Here is the latest Marvel 101 – War Machine.
