Events of Avengeance: Heroes Among UsEdit
Trained since birth to be distrustful of lesser men, the Mandarin discovered the Valley of Spirits, claiming advanced ring technology from a crashed alien vessel. His bids for power have put him at odds with Iron Man and other heroes many times.
Whilst at odds with the man in power, Zhang quickly recognised that an alliance with Tony Stark's Regime was a logical one. The Mandarin has come to be a dominant player within the Regime Forces.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
The Mandarin is a superb athlete with tremendous skill in the various martial artts. Through repeated practice, he has toughened all the striking surfaces of his body, especially his hands, which are covered with thick calluses. He can even split Iron Man's magnetic-beam reinforced alloy armor with repeated blows. So great is the Mandarin's martial arts ability, that he can even survive years without food and water, apparently sustaining himself purely via his mastery of chi.
The Mandarin is one of Earth's greatest scientific geniuses, and highly skilled in various sciences. Not only has he made himself into an expert authority on alien Makluan science, but he has also built upon this knowledge by making further discoveries based upon it.
The principal personal weapons of the Mandarin are the ten rings which he wears on the fingers of each hand. The rings' operations cannot be explained by contemporary Earth science, but it is known that they served as near-limitless power sources for the warp-drive engines of the Makluan starship of Axonn-Karr. The Mandarin learned how to convert the rings to his personal uses and to make them respond to his mental commands.
