Of course I'm talking about the canon of the Ten Rings in the films, and yes, Black altered them. In IM3, we are shown a video of at least the first Extremis accident in 2009, so that would take away what the first film had the viewer believe where the Ten Rings terrorist group was an actual terrorist group that ransacked villages. Instead, Killian created such a terrorist organization once his first bad Extremis patient died, and that was created in 2009, or around the first mistake at least and there was no such actual terrorist group that ransacked villages as shown in the first film.
