Re: do you think IM2 was better or worse than the original?
But he didn't do anything, really. Confronted Stark on the Monaco track...and pretty much sat around until the third act, where he let IM/WM kill him. Aesthetically he wasn't even that pleasing, just had tattoos and needed a shower and a haircut. Whereas we have with Stane, a wolf in sheep's clothing, a much smarter and more cunning villain, and he almost managed to kill Tony by way of removing his Arc Reactor (in one of the best scenes in the franchise). Vanko came nowhere close to that.
This is my design.
Raimi or not, it's absolutely hilarious how much Sony realizes they screwed the pooch.
