it may have been killians plan but honestly the character came across as the stereotypical angry geek scientist at the start that vows vengeance, because he was ignored by his idol. hell all that was missing from the scene on the roof was him screaming "i'll get you stark this i swear" or some other usual cliche, and after his change its still seems like the whole thing is just to get back at stark because he blew him off years ago.
Except Killian wasn't after vengeance. In fact, at the start of the movie, he isn't after Stark at all. And, in fact, just the opposite.
He comes to Stark Industries to specifically meet with Pepper Potts, since he has personal and business ties to her, to ask her to consider funding Extremis.
You need to watch the movie more carefully. Especially the scenes involving Killian.

You don't think glowing eyes, glowing skin, the ability to breathe fire and hurl massive multi-ton objects, to emerge unscathed from huge explosions, the ability to grow back severed limbs instantly, the ability to command an army of similarly powered soldiers, and having The Leader of the Free World in his back pocket is menacing....? ....Really???
