Marvel Reveals A Black Woman As New Iron Man

By Posted on 0 1 m read

Iron Man is actually now Iron Woman. Marvel announced the new super hero will be named Riri Williams and she will assume the role that was previously owned by Tony Stark on Wednesday.

Marvel writer Brian Michael Bendis detailed what led to the new character with TIME stating:

“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 arising was the amount of chaos and violence. And this story of this brilliant, young woman whose life was marred by traded 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 super heroine story I had ever heard.”

Williams will be a science genius who is a 15 year-old M.I.T. and builds her own Iron Man suit that impresses Stark as he is real to bow out of his own. Take a look at the RiRi Williams above.
