Mickey Rourke as Whiplash in Iron Man 2

The movie Iron man 2 is likely to have more than one villain. But you’ll recognize ex-con Ivan Vanko aka Whiplash (played by Mickey Rourke) right away, he’s got his own style:

Iron man 2 vs Whiplash

Whiplash makes his first appearance at the Monaco Historic Grand Prix.

This suppervillain definitely got a thing for tattoos!

Whiplash has his own twisted version of the Iron Man suit. By the way, we may see on the picture the two deadly electric whips that give Whiplash that name.

There is obviously a reason to why Whiplash suit looks like Iron Man’s. And Director Jon Favreau has been hinting at this similarity between the technology used in Iron Man’s armor and Whiplash’s:

“The technologies are definitely related, and that’s part of the core theme of the film”

I guess Ivan Vanko did not build his suit alone.. I guess he must have been helped by Stark Industries’ rival Justin Hammer (played by Sam Rockwell)…
