But Mandarin could have been the guy behind the scenes and Killian was the physical threat, Tony, or disappointingly, Pepper defeats him then either Mandarin gets away or dies in a way were its not definitive.

He didnt have any problem calling the other suits in at the end, didnt see much stopping from calling a suit from his location he could use at any one time, yet he waits until the end and calls all of them at once? Again, doesnt fly. Fair enough when Killian has him captive he could only call the Mach 42 then but other times he could have told Jarvis to send him a suit.

And with regards to the Hulk, origin movies are different, they need a build-up. And when Hulk did come on screen he was Hulk, not just some suit being remote controlled from miles away with no danger to the hero himself.
