Re: The Mandarin in Iron Man 3...Love it or hate it? - Part 2
You know what? I like the Mandarin now. I think people are getting hung up on the twist and missing the brilliance of having Tony alone and isolated at a time of the year that's associated with friendly and familial gatherings. I haven't seen anyone mentioning the fact that it's a normal guy from Tony's pre-Avengers past that caused him the most grief rather than some intergalactic beasties. Well played on Black's part.
