    I like it, but my friend was right when he said it sorta looks a bit off.

    it's got a Mad Max thing going on.

    which makes sense if Whiplash ghetto rigged and designed that shit himself without Tony's bankroll.

    ehh, i hope all his enemies who have tech don't just look like a ripoff of stark's design.

    by the end of the franchise i don't want to have seen 11ty billion different badguys with arc reactors on their chests.

    Ever see that old Schwarzenegger movie called The Running Man? Future reality TV show where convicts had to escape from American Gladiator-style hunters with names like Buzzsaw and Inferno? Thats what that Whiplash picture reminds me of.

    I think being a rip-off was the point of this character in this movie. I do agree, slightly, as I will imagine we'll have an iron man rip-off in every flick. I just hope Rourke isn't the main bad guy here, and something on a much larger scale then the iron man armor is at stake.

    It looks like Vanko works for Hammer Industries.... putting Stark in a bad position if they can mimic his tech.

    What a minimal villain to have in a movie.

    Sam Rockwell is playing Justin Hammer in the sequel and is likely to be the main villain.
