Not to mention the fact that they think Killian's motivation somehow stems from getting stood up by Tony at the '99 party.
Killian's motivation came *after* the party, and is almost entirely linked to Maya Hansen, *not* Tony Stark. Maya's Extremis project is what literally saved Killian's life and turned him around. *Everything* about Killian's life and motivation is about Extremis, *not* about getting snubbed at a party.
