Killian created AIM.
AIM created fire-breathing, limb-regrowing people who blew up if their body didn't accept the Extremis virus.
In order to keep people from thinking he's responsible for all the misfires, he created The Mandarin who would also serve as his figurehead.
Ok. This is where it gets tricky. He now wants to perfect Extremis. Ya know, keep people from blowing up and stuff? But first he wants to kill Tony Stark because why not? So, he blows up his house... in front of everyone... and blame it on Trevor.
Then, he finds out Tony is alive thanks to the bald dude and the fire lady. So he takes him back to base where he guilt-trips Maya who then threatens Killian. Killian decides he doesn't need Maya now that he has Tony.
As a side quest, he also kidnappped Pepper because she rejected him before and he uses her as a trophy.
Then, he kidnapped the President because that's how he rolls. Turns out, the vice president is in on this too because his daughter needs Extremis, I guess... Anyway, Killian wanted to kill the President in front of everyone (and probably blame this on Trevor, too) for, ya know, ultimate power and such.
And well... yeah. His plan doesn't really make a lot of sense.

why does he want power..........
May 7 - 07:57 AM
Not sure. I just assumed he wanted power because I really don't get why he wanted to kill the president...

Killian created a Think Tank. The Think Tank came up with using Mandarin as a decoy when a decoy because having a decoy is tricksy.
The Vice President was in control or supporting Killian. All he needed to do was kill the President. Instead of just killing the President, he and his Think Tank thought it was better to put on an elaborate execution broadcast around the world (while the President is in a protected Iron Patriot suit.
Meanwhile, the Vice President just does nothing when Tony Stark and Colonel James "Rhodey" Rhodes tries to warn him about an attempt to kill the President and possibly himself. Way to handle that one Mr. Vice President.
Once Killian's plan comes to fruition, the Vice President becomes the President, and creates an army of AIM mercenaries... except Killian already had an army of AIM mercenaries, so the whole point was inconsequential.
Killian should have built a better Think Tank.

Also, it's super stupid to kill that pretty scientist and give up on force Tony to work for him when the virus is not completed.
May 4 - 08:37 PM
What? No. The Vice President never got into the President position because the President was never killed.
May 4 - 08:42 PM
Yeah, because of the elaborate plan to have the President killed by live broadcast while in a protective Iron Patriot suit. You're missing the point.
1. The point was to kill the President to supplant a puppet President, but they didn't kill the President when they could have.
2. Having a puppet President would serve what purpose?
May 4 - 08:55 PM
#2: I think the puppet president would be, much like the Mandarin, a face... while Killian rules from behind the scenes.

It's the liberal theory about 9/11 and GW Bush. It makes no sense, but it makes perfect sense to them. Evil America created terrorists to attack America so America could convince citizens to support fighting the terrorists. Get it?

Actual, the liberal theory is that if 9/11 was orchestrated by GW Bush, it was to:
1. Lead to a reason to start a war in Iraq to kill Saddam Hussein. Check.
2. Instill fear to the American people that they need protection in exchange for freedom (wiretapping, warrant-less searches, etc. in order to collect data for companies to profit and to easily provide a scapegoat by planting fake evidence when needed), and increase military power overseas in which defense contractors like Halliburton, KBR, Triton, and Blackwater all get rich. Check.
3. Need I go on?
