Re: Mandarin discussion thread
I think Mandarin works best as a blend of technology and "is it or isn't it magic?" and really explore that line that Thor seems so happy to dance on.
I think it should be a new character, who is the head of the Ten Rings organization, but does not necessarily wear ten rings each with their own super power. They are keys, however, to accessing his power. Fing Fang Foom could be Asgardian, but you don't want IM3 to be Thor 2, so it has to be something from 'his' world. For that, I'd submit Fing Fang Foom or Ultimo be a construct of some sort. Yes, fighting big robots again, but that's Iron Man's world, and it should stay that way.
