If you can make God bleed, then people will cease to believe in him. And there will be blood in the water, and the sharks will come. The truth, all I have to do is sit here and watch, as the world will consume you.
~ Vanko's speech to Tony
You lose!
~ Vanko's last words before being blown up - his most famous line

Ivan Vanko, also known as Whiplash, was the main antagonist of the 2010 Marvel film, Iron Man 2.

He was portrayed by Mickey Rourke.

Early Life

Ivan Vanko was a disgruntled Russian Physicist. Not much was known about his early life, other than seeing his father, Anton Vanko, die. Angry about that, and other lives that Tony Stark, the family rival, had killed. Whiplash promised to make revenge on Iron Man (seeing as Iron Man (Tony Stark) is a member of the Stark family himself). First, he built an Arc Reactor that was similar to Iron Man's. Then, Whiplash started to build lightning whips while he watched Tony on TV. After he was done, Whiplash immediately cut the television in half with his one of his lightning whips.

History

While searching for his father's blueprints, Ivan attacked Tony Stark, AKA, Iron Man, with two electrified whips during the Historic Grand Prix of Monaco. Tony defeated him with his new Iron Man Suit, and Ivan was sent to prison.

IM2 Whiplash

The second version of Ivan Vanko's Whiplash Suit

Later, Ivan escaped from prison to get revenge on Tony and was in the employ of industrialist Justin Hammer. He created an army of android suits that were called the Hammer Drones. Ivan planned to use the drones to ruin Tony's name, as he did his family's 40 years ago by wrecking the Stark Expo. After his army of Hammer Drones were defeated, IVan (now wearing an upgraded Whiplash Suit), Tony, and Stark's partner, Colonel James Rhodes, AKA War Machine (Later, The Iron Patriot), came face to face in a final showdown. After Ivan was defeated when both Stark and Rhodes shot him with their beams, he committed suicide by activating the self-destruct mechanisms in the Hammer Drones and on his own armor. Stark and Rhodes flew off, and all the drones and Ivan's Suit exploded.

Personality

Despite his lowly upbringing and lack of resources, Ivan Vanko was a mechanical and technological genius. Ivan was extremely intelligent, and was able to create his own Arc Reactor by using his father's old blueprints and whatever resources that he could find, but instead of using his intellect for better purposes, he solely focused on a vendetta with Tony Stark after his father caused his family to be shipped back to Russia. Ivan was shown to be very arrogant, mocked and lied to Justin Hammer a powerful businessman after he had just broke him out from life in prison. Ivan was an alcoholic which was a trait that he picked up from his father, Anton.

Trivia

  • Whiplash was slightly similar to Rasputin as both villains were Russians who vowed a grudge on a family who caused their demises.
  • Ivan Vanko was a combination of Whiplash and Crimsom Dynamo. The Aton Vanko Version.
  • Unlike in the comics, Ivan's alias "Whiplash" was never mentioned in the film, just like Obadiah Stane.
