And that's exactly what they got. They created a character that drew upon a bunch of different symbols, tropes and stereotypes to create a menacing and enigmatic figure.
It just so happens that the creation of such a figure is part of the plot.
On the flipside, we get a hero, Iron Patriot whose every element "tested well with the focus groups."
I understand the frustration, but personally it was more interesting than anything that I've seen in a comic film in a long long time.
