After watching Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, I wondered what the Mandarin's rings were like in the comics, compared to the MCU versions.
I ended up finding that they seem quite different in both power(s) and size. In the comics, they seem like a "cheap" version of the Infinity Stones (literal rings), and in the MCU they look like artifacts that enhance your combat abilities (wristbands), closer to Mjølnir.
My question is : Was there any time in the comics where the rings were used the same way as in the MCU, or had the same size? If so is there a chance that the rings in the MCU will turn out similar to the ones in the comics?
As a side note, I know that the Mandarin in the comics knew about the (10) powers of the rings, whereas the MCU one didn't (assuming they had this power), so it seems unlikely that Disney will go down this path, but I'm still wondering.
