My thoughts exactly. I got someone asking me if I disliked a bunch of other movies (like BB) because they had a twist. It's not that I have a problem with twists in general, it's this particular twist I have a problem with.

Again, agreed. I watched IM1 a week ago, a few days before IM3 opened here, and I just kept thinking how good of a villain they had in IM1 in the face of Obadiah. Boy, he was great. And it's not like they got bad actors for the villains to follow, but I also think that no other villain in the IM franchise has reached the bar he set.
