Default Re: The Mandarin in Iron Man 3...Love it or hate it? - Part 2

I didn't like the fake Mandarin bit very much. My impression was that there was no Mandarin; he was just a concept Killian had concocted to give a face to his terrorism. Then at the end Killian blurts out that "I AM THE MANDARIN!" WTF? Was that supposed to be a reveal? We already knew Killian was behind everything. What's the point in calling yourself the Mandarin? He might as well have yelled out "I AM M.O.D.O.K.!" It would've been equally meaningless.
