Forget Iron Man 2, this is now the Rhodey show. Amazing what can be accomplished when "the bad guy" has such a punchable face.

It really was Justin Hammer's calling; to be that guy no one likes and everyone wants to see get his comeuppance. :)

...

How depressed am I going to be if I look up Hammer's comic book counterpart pre-Iron Man 2?

... I guess it depends? From what I've seen of him, comics Hammer doesn't have anywhere near the charisma of his movie counterpart, but he also seems to have a much better track record as the "man behind the man" mastermind type. The Armor Wars storyline in the comics, for example? Ultimately kickstarted by him getting someone else to swipe Tony's designs.

Honestly I much prefer the "in over his head, desperately wants to BE Tony Stark" doofus that is the MCU's Justin Hammer, but that's just me.

"It depends" is a good answer. Not that the rest of the explanation isn't welcome, it is just that reading it... I can't decide. XD

I mean, I had to remind myself that the awkward, goofy "sort of charm" the character gives off is probably best thought of as charisma. If he were successful, it wouldn't be awkward and goofy, just charming. I know we weren't talking about RPGs, but I'm going to have to remember that with character design. XD Hmm... if the comics blend the two, I think that could be satisfactory. I mean, Tony Stark somehow was not the character we know and love before the first Iron Man film in the comics. I mean, I know because I used to read Iron Man in the 90s. ;)
