Six months after the first movie, Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) is maintaining world peace, but the government is trying to get him to give up his suit. To make things worst, his artificial heart is slowly poisoning him, so he acts selfishly toward Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) and James Rhodes (Don Cheadle). Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) sent Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) to spy on Tony. Oh and also, an insane scientist Ivan Vanko (Mickey Rourke), who hates the Stark family, is working with Tony's rival, Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell), to make him look like an idiot at his own convention.
I personally disliked the movie. The so-called "Ivan Vanko" was a thinly-veiled rip off of the Crisimon Dynamo and Blacklash. The character's portrayal was very offensive towards Russians. Iron Man was a cocky, selfish, drunk idiot and his actions were very unjust. Ivan Vanko's robots were rip offs of the 5th Crimson Dynamo. Anton Vanko (the 1st Crimson Dynamo) died in the first 5 minutes of the movie! They portrayed Nick Fury as being very antagonizing, which he isn't in the comics. The movie, itself, was just a pointless series of stupid stunts; multiple, confusing villains; and dumb storylines, although there were some fun moments.
