Compare that with the "villains" of Iron Man 2. Hammer is played solely for laughs and shows pretty much zero competance at anything. Vanko is suitably creepy but makes a very poor showing during the fight scenes. He gets in a few good shots during the Monaco fight. But even then, he pretty much gets his ass kicked by the end and hauled off to jail.
I agree. Hammer was more comic relief than villian. It would be better if they made him a threat. That way, it would be Iron Man and War machine vs Hammer and Whiplash.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
