The Dreadknights are the guardians of the temple of Wisdom.
Tony, Rhodey, Pepper, and Gene Khan investigated a Makluan temple in Jersey. They found a book and a sword on two pedestals separately. Gene accidentally activated the test by reading the Chinese word for "begin" in the book. They were separated and had to fight off the Dreadknights as Iron Man and the Mandarin. Iron Man managed to figure out that the word to stop the test was on the sword and used his armor computer to translate the word which was "end". The Dreadknights stopped and went back to their statue state.
