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.
