    I do not understand the need to divorce the Mandarin from his Chinese background. Do you people think there are no villains in China?

The dictatorship of China will not allow Chinese villains in movies. No, not even if those villains fight China. I am not personally opposed to the idea of a Chinese villain. But what I am personally opposed to or approving of is completely irrelevant. They won't allow a Chinese villains in movies, and the corporate tendency to want synergy between movies and comics means there won't be any Chinese villains in comics ever again. So I've been lobbying for a solution to that dilemma that keeps the character recognizable. A solution that takes into account Hollywood's treatment of characters like Ra's Al Ghul, the Hand, and the League of Assassins. If you have another solution, I'm happy to hear it.
