Finally Comic fans! there is the very first image of Mikey Rouke playing the role of Whiplash!…???… “The Wrestler” star will play an amalgam of Crimson Dynamo and Whiplash rather than one or the other (as had previously been pondered), there is one big question that remains: was the decision to combine several characters into a new character a wise move? . In the look Rourke is sporting for the character, as well as his weapons and creating an entirely new, mash-up character, “Iron Man 2” director Jon Favreau is treading where few filmmakers have gone before — and even fewer have traveled successfully.

However, with this first image of Rourke as Whiplash generating such a polarizing response, it’s certainly worth looking at how similar mash-up characters have fared in earlier films — and kick off the discussion of why that might be the case, and why things might be different this time around.

What do you think?
