I would say the main villain of IM 2 was Vanko, not Hammer.
Like I said before, Vanko and Hammer were never a threat. They were only a danger to Stark because he was distracted by his reactor issue which I consider the main problem.
Vanko was beaten very easily on the race track after Stark suited up, and the final fight in two minutes. The Hammer drones gave Stark more of a problem.
Hammer? Pepper had him arrested by the NYPD. Pathetic.
I'll give you that one. But then again, like I mentioned in my initial post here, I really enjoyed Iron Man 2, I know a lot of people disliked the fact that a stretch of the film was kind of used to set up Avengers, but I liked that part too, and I liked Black Widow's role in the film.
I do have issues with Iron Man 3, this is true. I think the best part of it for me was dealing with how the incident in the Avenger's affected Stark. Pepper suiting up (albeit briefly) was also a really awesome moment too.
