Oh sure, send the black guy into space as the guinea pig....
But speaking of "where was WM," I think they might have actually addressed that question regarding his absence from the Avengers movie. There's already a (presumably canon) comic-book prequel to IM3 that shows that WM was off fighting Ten Rings terrorists in Hong Kong at the time of the Avengers movie; but I noticed a short clip in today's trailer of Iron Patriot busting in on what's apparently a Ten Rings stronghold, and that *could* be the "interim" scene during Avengers.....or not. Just a thought.
