    They cant make him full Chinese...because then he can not be a villain.

I have the answer.

Chinese Iron Man! (He would be called "New" Iron Man because somehow that always works.)

Hey, DC has a Chinese Superman, so why not?

Chinese Iron Man could be the hero and the Mandarin could be the villain!

Too bad Amadeus Cho is Korean. If he was Chinese he could be Iron Man too! And Thor! And Captain America! His action figures would have some amazing Transformer capability to switch between the identities. It's genius!

But OK, I guess that won't be happening, so the Mandarin has to be half English, because being a villain when you're English is perfectly fine. Maybe we could retcon away the Chinese half! He could be completely English. Raised in London. Went to Oxford. Was fascinated by feudal Chinese culture. Embarks on a mad course to bring feudalism back to China despite the staunch resistance of the brave Chinese government, military, and citizenry. Decides he needs the secrets of Tony Stark's technology to achieve his lunatic goals.
