    Not if he's able to "amp up" the sword's power by channeling the rings into it.  And it wouldn't be just a sword.   The Mandarin's matter re-arranger ring could be used to turn the sword into a staff, a shield, nunchucks, chains, even something that looked like Thor's hammer.


The weapon would have to be consistent in appearance, instantly recognizable to those familiar with the character. The Mandarin is already a character plauged by inconsistent visuals.

    Well the general feeling at the moment is that he is a superhuman kung fu master.   Think of Bruce Lee with the ability to channel his strength to near Ben Grimn level.


Then it's two superhuman characters fighting, one that knows kung fu and another that doesn't? I still don't think it's visually appealing. What exactly do Iron Man and the Mandarin have in common that people want to see them be major adversaries. It's already Magic (in appearance) vs Science which are huge opposites. Why does the Mandarin deserve to be more used than characters like Stane, Hammer, or any other spinoff of those characters?
