Invincible Iron Man Vol 1 525 Textless

After the deaths of his parents shortly after he was born, the man that becomes the Mandarin spent all of his vast inheritance training at science and martial arts. Doing so caused him to go broke at roughly the same time he reached adulthood. The Chinese government evicted him because he was too broke to pay his taxes. Bitter, broke, homeless, but extremely well trained, he began to wander the Earth and found an alien space-ship during his wandering. After he studied the ship to gain knowledge of advanced science, and stole rings he found within, the Mandarin uses a combination of superhuman martial arts abilities, alien science, and the ten energy-blasting rings he found to wage a never-ending war on civilization.
