About Him

Overview... world class physicist turned musclehead maniac. Vanko is the son of the Russian scientist who helped build the arc reactor technology that would lead to the Iron Man suit. But when Vanko’s father was deported thanks to accusations by the Stark family, his life fell apart. Ivan has vowed revenge on the Starks, specifically the one flying around the world in Iron Man armor.

Personality... intelligent, vindictive, and a perfectionist. He’s smart enough to make a brand new arc reactor and a set of Whiplash armor to go with it. He’s also brave enough to use it to attack Iron Man, the most famous and powerful superhero in the world. Focused on revenge, he’ll make alliances with any number of shady characters to achieve his goal.
