Re: Disappointments of the Trilogy?
Killian is much, much closer to a classic Mandarin than IMAA.
Classic Mandarin was a mad scientist and superhuman martial artist. He used inventions and martial arts to beat Iron Man more than he did the rings.
Killiandarin is a mad scientist and superhuman martial artist who uses political schemes and science and super-karate-chops to beat Iron Man. He's actually pretty close to 60's Mandarin in a lot of ways.
IMAA Gene Khan is just a mafia kid who is completely dependent on the rings. Not like classic Mandarin at all.
