Mr. Stark, I'm about to eat honey-roast ham, surrounded by the Agency's finest. The president's safe on Air Force One with Colonel Rhodes. I think we're good here.
~ Rodriguez to Tony Stark.
Vice President Rodriguez is a minor antagonist in Iron Man 3. He was the former Vice President of the United States until the events of the film.
He was portrayed by the late
Miguel Ferrer, who also voiced Shan Yu in Disney's Mulan, Big Boss in 20th Century Fox/Blue Sky's Rio 2 and Deathstroke in Teen Titans: The Judas Contract.
Rodriguez was thought to be the right-hand man of President Ellis and is very loyal to him, but it is later revealed that he is actually in league with the infamous organization A.I.M.
As it turns out, Rodriguez has a daughter who lost a leg due to unknown circumstances. Being so desperate to help his daughter's condition by getting her a new leg, Rodriguez allied with
Aldrich Killian to accomplish this. To that end, he gave the location of President Ellis to Killian so that the latter would kill the President and make Rodriguez the new President under his command.
However, Tony Stark and James Rhodes ultimately discovered the vice president's treachery after defeating Killian and his army of Extremis soldiers. In the end, Rodriguez was arrested for his crimes along with other people who conspired with Killian.
It's currently unknown if Rodriguez has perished by
Thanos' death wave or not.
