So why couldn't they come up with a better story for the genuine article in Iron Man 3?
Seems to me this is a consolation prize for people that didn't like the Mandarin twist but it ultimately won't matter in the long run.
Yeah that's pretty much my attitude. If the Mandarin ACTUALLY shows up for real this time in IM4 then that'll be something but this just reeks of a tactic to try and win over people who are upset over how they mangled the character.
