Assuming he got what he wanted, I'm not sure that he can make more of those things. I mean, he's not exactly a 23rd century physicist.
Well he was able to design weapons and starships in STiD...
Yeah. I'm not sure how that works.

Anyway, the Genesis device is a lot more complex, I guess, than regular weapons.

Except when Kirk taunts him a second time, he flies right into one of the most obvious "I'm baiting you, its a trap" situations in movie history. So, it is inconsistent because he reacts in two COMPLETELY different ways to Kirk's taunts.
Not necessarily. In the second case, Kirk could get away forever and not die.

Irresolute neurosis was never an established part of Khan's bio.
Not in Space Seed, but a lot of time has passed on that crap world. He's a changed man, clearly.

The whole sequence of events was a shark with freakin' lasers moment. And it was a plot hole.
You saying so doesn't make it so. It's a matter of interpretation.

And that's why Shatner's famous scream of Khan's name is made fun of. Not just for the cheesiness of it but the fact that it just makes no damn sense whatsoever.
He can still be pissed at Khan, regardless of knowing he has a way out.
And that's my opinion.
