Re: What DIDN'T you like about Iron Man 3? *SPOILER ALERT*
Various reviews and such have wondered if we are supposed to think Killian was behind the Ten Rings the whole time, or just stole their logo and such for the Mandarin videos. And the movie makes it pretty clear the Mandarin videos are a cover for the Extremis explosions that are accidents.
Killian *says* he wants to control both sides of the War on Terror, but in actually watching the movie, it looks more like he wants to cover for times Extremis doesn't work. And they don't even say *why* Extremis causes certain people to explode.
Did the movie say how many Extremis soldiers were working for Killian? It seemed the ones that exploded were ones that weren't directly "on the payroll."
