The Mandarin is the main villain in the 2007 animated superhero movie The Invincible Iron Man.
He was voiced by Fred Tatasciore, who also voiced Poseidon in God of War, Teetsi in Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, Major Force in Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Witch Doctor in LEGO Hero Factory, 8 in 9, Tony Alpert in Battlefield: Hardline, Cerberus in Scoob!, and CLU 2 in TRON: Uprising and TRON: Evolution.
The Mandarin was once the first ruler of China around 1000 BC and built a city where his dynasty estrablished their reign there. However, he was a cruel leader and wanted to be immortal, in order for him to continue his rule. He made his people build a temple within the city for him to maintain his rule. Although, he was unsure if it was enough, so he made a pact with the Deities of Death to make him powerful and immortal. However, it cost the life of his people. The Deities of Death gave him the Demon Elementals to help him destroy his empire and take the people's souls. His temple became a funeral for the people's body. The Deities of Death gave him five rings that gave him unlimited power and eternal life.
