IM 2 gets most of the 'Avengers ad' complaints.
IM2 is the only one where I think some character depth suffers from it, because they do let Vanko slip into the background of the movie for a very long period of time. But, some of how they incorporate the Avengers into the movie still works within the movie, and I still like it. But, I will agree Vanko suffers a great deal from everything they tried to include into IM2.
