Re: So Cap's Shield is tattooed on Mandarin's neck. Anyone care to explain?
Yea I could see him getting it when he was younger. You gotta think that when he was a kid Cap would've been idolized still as the embodiment of the world's greatest power in that era. He was this smiling blonde haired perfect symbol of America, so perverting that symbol makes sense.
He wanted America's reign to end and Western influence to die....so he tried to send the world into anarchy after cutting off the head (America). I think it'd make sense to have him in the MCU have some sort of involvement in the Middle East in the 70s/80s....places like Iran that overthrew American placed figureheads in seats of power. Kinda show how the Ten Rings (organization) was forged.
