And it seems like this movie is doing that perfectly, from the reviews posted the "twist" or whatever is being praised and only will upset those who expect the INO characters to be comic equals, which I never expect and actually like when they don't keep them equals but expand or change them to enhance the movie world.
This is pretty much how i look at it too. Black and Feige made it pretty clear their version of the Mandain wasn't going to be similar at all to the character from the comics.
