Re: The Mandarin in Iron Man 3...Love it or hate it? - Part 1
The Iron Man film makers don't get a pass for screwing up a b-lister villain because Iron Man himself was a b-lister before he was handled with care and maturity.
Someone said (can't remember who) 'there are no bad characters, just bad writers. If Marvel were worried about the asian stereotypes then they should have dropped the asian stereotypes.
I think what the film makers did with Manadrin was inexcuseable, and then attempting to redeem the situation with the secondary villain (because that what he was) TELLING me (literally ha ha!) he is the main villain. Oh DEAR.
Staggering, disrespectful and worst of all, LAZY.
