Default Re: Marvels biggest slap in the face!!!

Not at all, the Mandarin's motivation in that arc is that he wants to mend his ways and do something good for humanity so he tries to release Extremis on a world wide scale so that the 2% of the population that survives (which he knows won't include himself so this is a suicide mission) will be superhuman and free from disease and injury.

Aside from that he's still not a nerd turned bad, displays remarkably little ego or arrogance instead coming off as somebody who's been tempered by a lifetime of battle and hard experiences and heck isn't even particularly interested in revenge on Iron Man. Tony would survive as he's already compatible with Extremis and Mandarin knows that. He comes off more as a mad idealist than as a Edward Nigma rip-off.

Cass: Where are we going?
The Doctor: Back of the ship.
: Why?
The Doctor
: Because the front crashes first. Think it through.
