In the comic universe, the Mandarin's 10 rings of power have alien technology in them but it remains to be seen if they will have the same power in Iron Man 3.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly and talked about the rings in the new film. SPOILER ALERT!
"Feige says we won’t get ice rays and fire beams from these rings, like in the comics, but what will we get? Smart money says they’re not just because the Mandarin has won a lot of Super Bowls.
"But this version of The Mandarin will not follow that same backstory. Don’t expect aliens."
