Temujin was brought to a monastery in Tibet as a small child. His only memories of his father are of The Mandarin carrying him and shielding him from the cold winds of the mountains of Tibet. Temujin was raised by the monks of the monastery. He excelled at the study of martial arts, demonstrating a talent for channeling his Chi that rivaled his father. As a young man, Temujin was sent to kill Anthony Stark, also known as Iron Man. Despite his skill and power, Temujin lacked the brutality and bloodthirstiness of his father, and failed at this mission. During this assassination attempt, Temujin learned that Anthony Stark was also Iron Man. However, his father wiped his memories in a rage over his failure, and thus unknowing protected Anthony Stark's secret identity for several years.
One day servants brought the Dragon Rings to Temujin and informed him that his father had died in battle with Iron Man. Feeling obligated to avenge his father's death, he forced Iron Man to duel him. Temujin defeated Iron Man using only his skill and Chi channeling powers, refusing to use the rings out of a sense of fair-play. However, a third party caused an explosion that allowed Iron Man to escape moments before Temujin could deliver the killing blow on his defeated opponent.

Months later, Temujin again battled Iron Man, and was on the verge of defeating him when a rogue member of Temujin's organization stabbed him in the back. Iron Man then defeated the traitor. Feeling that Iron Man had payed his debt to Temujin's family with this act, Temujin abandoned plans of revenge.
Months later Temujin was involved with a scheme to steal a source of great power. Temujin now displayed the brutality and bloodthirsty characteristic of his father. It is unknown what caused this personality shift, though it has been theorized that the Dragon Rings may have affected his personality.
Most recently Temujin has become involved with the Agents of Atlas as the understudy to Jimmy Woo. His role is to become the replacement Khan should Woo die.
Powers and Abilities
Temujin possesses immense ability to channel his Chi into superhuman physical abilities. By channeling his Chi, he can increase his strength sufficiently to destroy Iron Man's armor with a few blows, and increase his speed sufficiently to dodge highly advanced computer-guided energy-blasting weaponry at close range. He also possesses the ability to channel Chi into superhuman durability against blunt damage and energy attacks on a level rivaling such characters as Iron Man and the Thing. However, his durability against edged weapons appears to remain at a normal human level. Additionally, Temujin is a highly skilled martial artist.
Temujin briefly wore the rings of The Mandarin, but these have since been returned to his father.Physical Characteristics
