Alec Eiffel was a fascist who was chosen by the Spin ring of the deceased Mandarin as its host, "Mandarin Three," in order to help it and the other rings have revenge on Tony Stark. Eiffel and the other Mandarins later travelled to Svartalfheim in order to confront Malekith the Accursed, who had hunted down other three Mandarins and had taken their rings from them.[1]

The Mandarins thwarted any attempt of Malekith to hide or flee, as the rings could locate each other. The elf made a pact with Iron Man, who was also at the time in Svartalfheim to retrieve the rings, disposed of his ring and escaped to safey, as he could no longer be tracked. Following their failure to kill Malekith, the Mandarins resumed their own paths.[2]

The Mandarins joined forces once more to help Mole Man's plan to create ring-powered weapons with which destroy cities from their base in Sinister London. A test was thwarted by the Fantastic Four. Before they could release one of the actual machines, Iron Man pinned them down along with the Trojan Guard and Abigail Burns. The Mandarins failed to escape, as Iron Man's ally Dark Angel used magic to prevent them from teleporting.[3]


Vortex Beam Ring: Alec Eiffel possesses the Spin ring of the Mandarin, which causes the air to move about at high speed in a vortex. The vortex can be used as an offensive weapon, as a means of levitating objects, or as a means of propelling the ring's wearer through the air.

  • Super Speed: Iron Man observes that he normally has "Quicksilver level speed."

Teleportation: Additionally, his ring enables Eiffel to teleport. Its teleportation range is unknown, but it can even allow its bearer to travel even through realms.


  • Alec Eiffel is named after a song of the same name by the American alternative rock band Pixies.[4]
