Galactus wasn't iconic, and I always found him corny, but everybody lost their minds because of how he was treated in the second Fantastic Four movie, and understandably so. Iron Monger, Whiplash, and even Justin Hammer were much more awesome in their movies, and they are less iconic than Mandarin. So I'm not sure why Mandarin getting the shaft is acceptable.
Some wonderful points.

LET THE MAN VOTE! His voice must be heard!
