And yet: people in this very thread are now flat-out admitting that they wanted to see that godawful racist clown caricature from the comic book. The original --- and I do mean "original", 1960s --- Yellow Peril Mandarin.

I don't think they have a shred of credibility left in their arguments against Movie Mandarin after that. /smh
It's absurd how you insist on ignoring that the movie HAD ALREADY the perfect incarnation of Mandarin, far from any caricature no one would have ever thought of including (we're not even having the 1960's Tony Stark, Pepper Potts or Happy Hogan, do we?).

The movie had it, and changed it for a joke and an excuse of character deconstruction. Awful decision.
