He'll be just a scientist in IM3 and then turn into Radioactive Man by the end. I'm thinking he might show up as full-on Radioactive Man in Ant-Man.

Who's not to say that Marvel won't go full on Dr. Manhattan with him. Then the age of the actor wouldn't be a problem. They would just use him for his voice and likeness.

I'm like 99% sure he's been in more Iron Man comics than Thor comics. Probably twice as many.
You're right when you think about it like that. If we use that logic then Wolverine is a Hulk villain and Sabertooth is a Spider-man villain.

They will probably refer to him as The Radioactive man. It will come off more as a descriptive reference rather than as an actual name.

Eh, when I think of the Radioactive Man I think of his time on the Thunderbolts. Plus he was also on the Master's of Evil. I'd rather not see him in IM3.

Although this pic makes me want to see a Radioactive Man vs Thor fight in a MCU film:

Yeah, he is pretty old. Then again, most of the MCU villains haven't been young.

On a separate note, he might even turn up again in a possible Hulk movie.

I could see it becoming a case of Radioactive Man being a Frankenstein's monster. Wang Xuegi as a withered old scientist who becomes irradiated, superpowered, and a bulked-out CGI brick who turns to the wrong side of the law (willingly or unwillingly).

Radioactive Man has always been more of a Thor villain than an Iron Man villian.

I think Thor works best fighting gods and monsters from Norse mythology. That's part of the reason why Mr. Hyde started off fighting Thor, but ended up as a Daredevil and Captain America villain. Radioactive Man is more of a science based villain and being a Chinese scientist fits with the plot of IM3 that is set in China. That's why Radioactive Man is in this movie and why Thor will be fighting Dark Elves in his next film. How would fit Radioactive Man into a Thor movie, he wouldn't fit in with the magical enemies Thor usually fights and wouldn't be able to carry a movie by himself. Thor works best in a fantasy setting, so having a sci fi character would be out of place.

He could work as a Thor villain in a Thor movie that was almost entirely set on earth. Any Villain can work anywhere if you want to make it work. That's how The Avengers was even capable of existing. Whedon wanted to make it work so it did.

Why would you set a Thor movie entirely on Earth? Is it not more fun to see Thor fighting mythical beasts and be in fantastical realms? Setting a Thor movie entirely on Earth seems like a step back at this point. Radioactive Man wouldn't work as a Big bad in a film, he was mainly a minion in the Masters of Evil story lines he appeared in, so what role would he play in a Thor movie. It seems like all he would do was provide a fight scene in a Thor movie, rather being a character that advances the plot. He isn't the Big Bad in the Iron Man 3 movie, but considering it is set in China, Radioactive Man seems more like a natural fit in Iron Man 3 then the next Thor movie where Thor will fight Dark Elves.

Not all villains can carry every type of movie, I think Mr. Hyde would work way better in a Daredevil movie then in a Thor movie.

Honestly, who cares? He's no one's villain really, he's bounced around. They obviously just wanted a Chinese scientist friend for Tony and Radioactive Man was a Chinese scientist, so they slid him in there.

Obviously I do, so you know that pretty much answers your "who cares" question.

If I remember correctly he was created specifically to stop Thor, if that doesn't make him more of a Thor villain I don't know what will.

I never said he was a "definitive" Thor villain, I just said he was more of a Thor villain than IM villain.

This. Thor basically has two complete rogues galleries. An Earth one with Absorbing Man, Radioactive Man, Mister Hyde, Grey Gargoyle, Cobra and the Wrecking Crew, and an Asgardian one with Loki, Enchantress, Hela, Surtur, Karnilla etc.

Heroes have been borrowing his Earth based Rogues since the 1960s and 1970s. It's nothing new. Radioactive Man has also been associated with the Mandarin, The Crimson Dynamo and Titanium Man in the comics, so to say he's not an Iron Man rogue is wrong. He's one of those characters who falls into two rogues galleries, the way that Kingpin is both a Spider-Man and a Daredevil villain, or M.O.D.O.K. originated as a Captain America villain, but wound up fighting Hulk, Iron Man and Ms. Marvel.

Kind of like how Thanos started out as an Iron man villain turned universal Marvel villain.
