Who's Who? Wednesday

The Mandarin is the arch enemy of Iron Man. He can
be seen in the new film 'Iron Man 3,' which as made 175.3 million
dollars during the opening weekend (ranking it second behind 'The
Avengers'). He has also appeared in the animated film 'The
Invincible Iron Man.' He's been in the television shows 'Iron Man:
Armored Adventures,' 'The Marvel Super Heroes,' and 'Iron Man.' He
has also been in video games such as Marvel Pinball, Marvel:Ultimate
Alliance, and Captain America and the Avengers. In other merchandise
he can be found in toys, clothing, pins, keychains, artwork, comic
books, and other collectables.
He is from China, and he has many allies he can
count on such as Avatars, Swordsman, Ladykiller, Sandman, Masters of
Evil, Power Man, Enchantress, and the Executioner. His enemies
include Iron Man, Happy Hogan, Pepper Pots, The Avengers, Goliath,
Shield, and the War Machine.
The Mandarin has worn many different outfits over
the years, but he can usually be seen in a very long robe which is
usually green. He has long black hair, blue eyes, and is muscular.
He also has rings on each of his fingers known as The Ten Rings of
the Mandarin. His left hand includes the Ice Blast Ring, Flame Blast
Ring, Mento Intensifier Ring, Electro Blast Ring/Lightning Ring, and
the White Light Ring while his right hand includes the Vortex Beam
Ring, Matter Rearranger Ring, Black Light Ring, Impact Beam Ring,
and the Disintegration Beam Ring. Here is a more detailed pictures
of his rings, and what there powers are.
He was created by Stan Lee, and Don Heck and he
was played by Sir Ben Kingsley in Iron Man 3. He was brought into
the Marvel Universe in 1964, in the comic book 'Tales of Suspense.'
The Mandarin can't be found in Disney parks at
this time. In my opinion he ranks as one of the top comic book
villains of all time. Hopefully he will be featured after Marvel is
brought into the theme parks.
