Ivan Vanko is a russian inventor and the son of scientist Anton Vanko.

He built himself an Arc Reactor and also a sort of half suit wired up to two electrical whips. He attacks Tony Stark while he is in Monaco racing posing as a stewart and chops Stark's car in half with his whips. Tony uses his portable Iron Man Mark V and eventually defeats Vanko. He is then inprisoned but is released by Justin Hammer who employs him to refine his Iron Droids that he has created based on Iron Man.
