I don't think he's an iconic comic villain. What I DO think is that a whole ton of people were excited for the movie version based on the awesome trailers which built him up and those expectations were completely dashed when he was revealed to be some drunken idiot named Trevor. I could give a fig about comic-Mandarin. I was excited for "you'll neveeerrrrr seeee meeee comminnnng" Mandarin. Instead I got "don't go in the bathroom for 20 minutes" Mandarin. Yeah, it was damn disappointing.
