In the comics he was scientist before becoming a super villain, that doesn't change the fact that after he gained power all he did was engage in petty thievery, not really much of a Big bad style villain.

If Shane Black didn't like Mandarin enough to put in the third film, why would he put him in a fourth film? Let's face, because of Mandarin's origins as a yellow peril villain, Marvel has been struggling to do things with him in other media. He was a white guy turned green in the 94 cartoon, a sympathetic teen bookworm in Armored Adventures and Sauron from Lord of the Rings in the 2007 Iron man DTV. Plus Mandarin is a very inconsistently written character in the comics. I will admit that Killian was kinda dull and a bit disappointing, but it be really hard to sell comic book Mandarin to a general audience in 2013, Marvel has been struggling with this character for a while.
