New Iron Man is a 15 year old black girl genius enrolled at M.I.T.
Very excited for this – although they might want to consider changing the name from Iron Man to something a little more accurate? Via Complex.
Meet M.I.T. genius Riri Williams, the new Iron Man. Marvel announced that Williams will inherit Tony Stark’s throne on Wednesday, with Marvel writer Brian Michael Bendis breaking down the fresh comic book character’s impact on the Invincible Iron Man series in a candid chat with TIME.
“One of the things that stuck with me when I was working in Chicago a couple of years ago on a TV show that didn’t end up airing was the amount of chaos and violence,” Bendis said of developing the new character. “And this story of this brilliant, young woman whose life was marred by tragedy that could have easily ended her life—just random street violence—and went off to college was very inspiring to me. I thought that was the most modern version of a superhero or superheroine story I had ever heard.”
