Re: Official Iron Man 3 rate/review thread. - Part 1
I have to say my two favorite IM villains of all time have been Stane and Madame Masque. I do like the mandarin, but his original interpretation was racist and pretty corny too. I don't know why Kirby always thought to use the first letter of the bad guy to put somewhere on his costume. Mandarins "M" shaped mask looked corny as hell. It was the same thing for Galactus with the "G" on his shirt.
People have done some good and bad takes on Mandarin. Anyone see the animated Invincible Iron Man, where Mandarin was the spirit of some dead Chinese emperor that possessed this chick Tony had the hots for?
