First Look At Mickey Rourke's Iron Man 2 Bondage Harness

Illustration for article titled First Look At Mickey Rourkes Iron Man 2 Bondage Harness

Here's the first picture of Mickey Rourke as Ivan Vanko aka Whiplash, a Russian who creates his own power-suit, with light-up electrical whips, in Iron Man 2. Except it seems like Ivan forgot the "suit" part. [USA Today, thanks Tim!]

Hm. Well, guess I'll turn on fanboy mode for minute. Scarlotti wasn't Russian, he was a Stark researcher who basically became a mob flunky (and yes, it is sad that I knew the civilian identity of a minor Iron Man villain off the top of my head). There was a fairly interesting story where he reformed but returned to crime because he'd lost custody of his son and needed money to get him back. He was then beaten to death by the Iron Man armor, which had become sentient, while a horrified and helpless Tony watched from inside the armor.

I was kind of hoping for the black cloak and green head plume.
