Mandarin is Iron Man's arch-foe. So regarding that aspect (only), you can compare him to the other guys.
Hey, it's not my fault that Iron Man doesn't have a rogue gallery that is as impressive as Batman's or Spider-Man's. And with that in mind, ruining the one character that stands out from the other Iron Man enemies (even if he is not as iconic as Joker or Green Goblin) is not a good idea.
