The Mandarin: 'Iron Man 3' does WHAT to Tony Stark's nemesis? -- SPOILER ANALYSIS


really good read on this whole fiasco that has us all in a tizzle.

i'm also sad that we didn't get a racist Asian stereotype with Captain Planet rings, but at least they gave us something, and that it kinda made sense... well comic book sense, but that's better than no sense at all.

i was pissed off at the reveal as i was watching it unfold, but the more i thought about it, the more i became accepting of the change, maybe because they actually put some effort into making it work. much like the fusion of Crimson Dynamo and Whiplash formed Mickey Rourke's Ivan Vanko in the 2nd IM film, 2 sort-of silly characters were fused into a super-villain that was visually impressive and an actual character. i didn't care for Rourke in 2, but still there was something there, and there's something here, too.

the article says it better.
