Introducing Ironheart!

Brian Michael Bendis recently spoke to Wired, and revealed that Marvel’s new female Iron Man, Riri Williams, will soon be known as Ironheart. Riri  will gain her name within the pages of the first issue of the relaunched Invincible Iron Man.

Debuting in May 2016 (Invincible Iron Man Vol 2 #7), Riri made a fast impact as a character. Her back story revealed she was born shortly after her father, Riri Williams, Sr., died and that she grew up together with her sister Sharon and their mother.

She is a ertified genius who was given a free scholarship at M.I.T.. By the age of 15 she was already attending it and whilst there she challenged herself to reverse-engineer technology from an outdated Iron Man Armor Model 41.

This resulted in Riri creating her own prototype version of the Iron Man Armor, using mainly stolen material from campus. When campus security caught notice of her suspicious activities, Riri was prompted to don the suit of armor and fly away.

After flying around the country trying to get the hang of her suit’s flying capabilities, Riri intercepted a couple of inmates escaping from the New Mexico State Penitentiary. She managed to stop the speeding truck they were using as a escape vehicle, but at the cost of her armor’s integrity.

Riri eventually returned to her house to keep working on her suit, much to her mother’s dismay. After learning of Riri’s accomplishment, Tony Stark visited her and decided to endorse Riri’s desire to become a super hero

Duffer Bros: “There will be justice for Barb”

Stranger Things was clearly the biggest thing to ever hit Netflix, grabbing an audience with its nostalgia and story telling but as of yet no Season 2 has been announced.

In a recent interview with IGN, creators of Stranger Things, the Duffer Brothers hinted at what could come at questions of the return of Barb were answered:

 

“I can’t see it happening” Matt Duffer replied, “Barb will not be forgotten. We’ll make sure there’s some justice for Barb. People get very frustrated, understandably, that the town doesn’t seem to be really dealing with Barb. That stuff is all happening. We’re just not spending any screen time on it.”

Stranger Things Barb murial

He continued by noting that “Season 1 actually takes place over the course of six or seven days – it’s a really short period of time,” he said. “So part of what we want to do with hypothetical Season 2 is to explore the repercussions of everything that happened.”
