"Ancient History 101" is the ninth episode of Season 1 in the TV series, Iron Man: Armored Adventures.
Tony, his friends and Gene search the ancient ruins where his father first found one of the Makluan Rings and discover a carving explaining the history of the rings and that for each one there's a test established by the first Mandarin intended to determine the worthiness of his heirs and activate to each ring's power.
In this case the test being one of wisdom, Gene assumes the key lies in choosing a book over a sword, but this only ends up bringing stone Dreadknight statues to life and splitting the group. Knocking Rhodey unconscious, Gene attempts to defeat the statues as the Mandarin but it is Tony and Pepper who realize the sword is the key to passing the test. After escaping the collapsing temple, they discover the sword contains a map to the next ring.
