2. The moniker of "Whiplash" has been used by several different people in the comics. Why not embrace that tradition in the MCU?
3. Many would argue that Ivan Vanko was hardly even a very good representation of the character. He was more of a bizarre amalgamation of the Crimson Dynamo and Whiplash. Why not give the character another shot with a more comic-faithful representation?
