Character Relationships Edit

Iron Lad Edit

Iron Lad offers to help improve Whiplash's armor and weapons with tech from the future. He hopes Whiplash will forgive him for everything that his future self, Kang, does to him. He doesn't specify what exactly Kang does to Whiplash.

Iron Man Edit

Whiplash held a grudge against Iron Man for the destruction of his village. The Iron Man armor used to destroy his village was hacked and out of Tony's control, but Whiplash still held him accountable because he built the armor. After forgiving Iron Man and joining the Academy, Iron Man helps Whiplash travel back in time and stop his father, Dr. Vanko, from selling weaponized arc reactors.

Mantis Edit

Mantis tries to invite Whiplash to the Academy "Green Hair Club" with She-Hulk, but he doesn't understand donuts or fist bumps.
