I read the comics, some of the older Iron Man ones, and I will defend the Mandarin twist passionately to this day, I really loved it so much. I wasn't expecting it either; the people I went to the movie with just lost it (in a good way) during that part, and they're part of the general audience who doesn't read the books.

I totally agree with your friends though. Best. IM. Ever!!
