Whiplash is the villain in the upcoming Iron Man sequel, but who the hell is he? Marvel answers this with a new mini in November.
From writers Brannon Braga (Star Trek: Enterprise, 24) and Marc Guggenheim (Amazing Spider-Man, Eli Stone) and artist Phil Briones (Sub-Mariner), the 4-issue mini-series will introduce an all new version of the classic villain, presumably based on the character Mickey Rourke is playing in the movie. Series editor Bill Roseman promises "jet-setting, globe-trotting, eye-popping action"
The solicitation text reads:
IRON MAN VS. WHIPLASH #1 (of 4)
WRITERS: Brannon Bragga & Marc Guggenheim
PENCILS: Phil Briones
COVER: Brandon Peterson
Before he strikes in "Iron Man 2," meet the all-new, all-different,

(TV’s "24") and Marc Guggenheim (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN) and artist Phil
Briones (SUB-MARINER: REVOLUTION) have the answers!
