Pretty much this. IM doesn't necessarily have the greatest rogues gallery by any stretch, but there's enough material there for good cinema. And each time, they managed to drop the ball.
I enjoyed Stane as just Stane, but the Monger itself was underwhelming (not to mention I still struggle to understand how Obadiah could just hop into the suit and know how it functions perfectly while it took Stark numerous challenges to operate his own)
Whiplash, IMO would have been better off as just plain old Crimson Dynamo, but once again, Vanko was interesting in his own right.
And the less said about "Mandarin" the better, smh...
