If anyone is really paying attention, and many are, what’s been happening with Iron Man for a long time appears to be one giant shell game in which fans believe they’re being told the truth about the Avenger, while at the same time they’re being lied to, and have been for many years now. From the idea that Tony was trying to recruit Bruce Banner during the post-credit scene of The Incredible Hulk to several comic book stories, some of which were dumped rather quickly, Iron Man has been one giant lie by Marvel apparently since a lot of the things that people should have likely figured out for themselves are being called falsehoods. One of the most entertaining is that the Mandarin was thought to be the villain of Iron Man 3. This is where the gullibility of the fans comes into play since if anyone has ever read the comics, the Mandarin is a very serious opponent, not a British man in a topknot with what look like dimestore plastic rings on his fingers. Granted, not everyone has read the comics, but a quick Google search under Iron Man would have revealed the true nature of the Mandarin and their history.
