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.


My headcanon is the rings were originally created in an attempt to imitate, or replicate, the power of the Infinity Gems to as great an extent as possible.

Ten small containers, each giving access to one tremendous power - each with their own AI to properly control it.
