Even a Mandarin without powers would have been adequate, but giving him abilities that allow him to physically battle Iron Man actually brings him even closer to his comic-book counterpart.

I think using Extremis to grant him these powers was a great idea. Rings shooting fire, laser beams, and all manner of bizarre effect would have been difficult and lengthy to explain. In my opinion, just having the "Mandarin facade" (as I like to call it) wear ten rings was a nod enough to the comic rings.
