Default 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.

"I never asked for this crown. Gold is cold and heavy on the head, but so long as I am the king, I have a duty If I must sacrifice one child to the flames to save a million from the dark Sacrifice is never easy, Davos. Or it is no true sacrifice." - Stannis Baratheon
