Re: An idea for Whiplash II...
I wouldn't mind seeing Whiplash II as part of a rogue's gallery of hunters (a la Empire Strikes Back) who go after Iron Man in a future movie. No need for an elabourate backstory, just put him in with guys like The Beetle, Crimson Dynamo, the Mauler etc. in kind of an Armor Wars situation.
Notice to all Hype members: Put down your phone and/or game controller right now and pick up a copy of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon. A must-read for anybody who visits this website.
