    A gyroscope, I can see it. Good idea. Or maybe something designed to keep the actual gyroscope spinning.

Thanks \:\-\)

Just like the Ice Blast reminds me Captain Cold and the Fire Blast reminds me Heatwave, the Vortex reminds me the Top who, in the Silver Age, was obsessed by the properties of gyroscopes.

Another idea that could work would be to combine the energy blasts & the martial art into Mandarin's own style of attack.

The idea has already been used in the Dragon Ball series, in classic HK 1990s movies such as Zu Warriors from the Magic Mountain, Storm Riders & Storm Warriors and, more recently, in the Last Airbender & Korra cartoons.

(... and, also, there is Iron Fist, of course)

Mandarin could be the only one to channel the energy of the rings into his own body and release it through martial moves.
