Default Re: So Cap's Shield is tattooed on Mandarin's neck. Anyone care to explain?

The MCU Mandarin doesn't strike me as the type of guy to promote a corporation (even if he turns out to have ties to them) by tattooing their logo on the back of his neck.

Movie AIM likely is a very different entity than the comic-book version. There's probably no link to HYDRA at all, since MCU HYDRA was broken up at the end of WWII in CATFA (although I'd be willing to bet they'll enjoy a resurgence in later Marvel movies --- "cut one head off and two more grow in its place" and all that).
