Iron Man Has Nemeses?

Iron Man was a huge hit launching the B-Lister in to A Level status. But one thing Iron Man lacked that most big time Superheroes have is a villain with name recognition. Ask most people who was Iron Mans foe in the movie and they may say those Afghanis, or that bald guy, but aside from fanboys most people arent going to correctly say "Iron Monger."

So, here comes Iron Man 2 and it looks like the Wrestler Mickey Rourke is in line to play the Crimson Dynamo. Basically, he is a Russian Iron Man. Sure, it may end up cool, but I doubt that means much to most people. Poor Iron Man. Great heroes deserve great villains, and Iron Man still hasnt found his Joker.
