Y'know what did sound Mandariny? Killiandarin shouting "I AM THE MANDARIN!!" while karate-chopping armors to pieces. Him calling Pepper his "trophy", which shows the hypermasculinity at the core of the character. Killian did say Mandariny things. You guys just liked the Yellow Claw stuff better.
The comic character who best suits the quotes is moot; this is an adaption. The film character who delivered those lines was "the Mandarin" (after a fashion). Two different mediums; in one you expect a more solid version of the source character.
"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the Bastard of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?" - Stannis Baratheon
