Aside from the fact that Whiplash in the comics is a C-lister even among other Iron Man villains, there's been 2 or 3 of them prior to the film. And film Whiplash is parts Whiplash and Crimson Dynamo. And there have been at least a dozen of them. And neither were ever Iron Man's arch enemy. So it's not really comparable since there has only ever been one Mandarin.
