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age of 15 she was already attending it and whilst there she challenged herself to reverse-engineer technology from an outdated Iron Man Armor Model 41.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
