Yeah, when they started the first Iron Man movie, a big newspaper wrote something like Marvel now using their B-heroes because they are running out of ideas for the "good ones"...
But I disagree with the rest. If Iron Man is a B hero and has only a B or C rogues gallery, the biggest mistake you could make is raping the only
villain he has who stands out a little bit.
