Those of you familiar with the Whiplash character and with comic book movies in general probably already figured out that Mickey Rourke's version of the Iron Man villain will don more than one costume in the upcoming sequel. The only image released so far (see above to the right) shows his make-shift Whiplash costume -- which, we imagine, will change and become more efficient by the time he and Iron Man come to final blows. So now one question remains: what will the final Whiplash look like when all is said and done?

Well, he may look similar to the new version of Whiplash pictured above. This November, Marvel will debut a four-issue Iron Man vs. Whiplash limited series, which promises to bring you up to speed on the villainous Whiplash and help you learn a little more about the character before he makes his big-screen debut on May 7, 2010.

The first issue, due out on November 4th, comes with the following description: "Before he strikes in "Iron Man 2," meet the all-new, all-different, all-deadly Whiplash in this special in-continuity adventure! Who is Anton Vanko and why does he blame Tony Stark for the murder of thousands? For that matter, why does the United Nations? Brannon Bragga (TV's "24") and Marc Guggenheim (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN) and artist Phil Briones (SUB-MARINER: REVOLUTION) have the answers!"

If Whiplash looks anything like that pic above, we're in for a pretty cool ride. Check out another image of Whiplash fighting Iron Man over on, and click below to see a larger version of the image above.
