Subj: IMO, their power level should be compared to the Rogues' weapons (cold gun, heat gun, ...) and Ben 10's alien wristwatch

    The rings are astonishingly powerful.

    Without the rings, what is he? A powerful martial artist.

    With the knowledge of alien science - but he got the rings from the same source. Can you really have one without the other?


I personally like to see them simply move him up a category. i.e. straight on...head to head he is a super human beast, but there are others more powerful. The rings and his brilliance allow him to compete and raise his game to another level.

Using battle board analogy say...
Without rings he is a deadly user of tech and a Mata.
Add in rings he becomes Prime Meta...more flexibility + a few powerful attacks that are not replicable by most masters of science.

It has been established since their very first appearance that they are very powerful ... since the gems contain unlimited energy ...



... still, they are not as powerful as items such as the Cosmic Cube.

IMO, Mandarin has an arsenal of 10 weapons at his disposal.

For example, I think that the cold ring could be compared to Captain Cold's gun.

It is a very powerful weapon (it is based on a cyclotron) but it doesn't make Captain Cold invincible.
