Goodbye Tony Stark, and hello Riri Williams! It appears Tony Stark will be stepping away from his position as Iron Man. Riri Williams is a young college student who is known for being a kid genius. We do not know much about Riri yet, but here are the five things you should know about the new Iron Man, Riri Williams.
1. Riri is only 15 years old.
Since she is so young, will she be able to handle the job as Iron Man?
2. She goes to M.I.T. on a scholarship she got for being so intellectually advanced.
Riri definitely seems smart enough to be an Avenger.
3. Riri created her own version of the "Iron Man" suit as a challenge for herself.
We’re not sure if she will be using the suit she created or Tony Stark’s old suit. It seems as if her suit is almost as high-tech as his is.
4. The prototype for the "Iron Man" suit was created with stolen pieces of scrap metal from around the M.I.T. campus.
Riri showed the suit to one of the girls in her dorm which then caused a security guard on campus to have some questions.
5. Yes, Riri's does fly like Tony Stark's "Iron Man" suit.
So she will be able to get around just like Tony Stark does.
There are tons of questions that seem unanswered about the new "Iron Man" right now. As of right, now there aren’t any movies featuring Marvel’s latest character. However in this interview with Brian Michael Bendis, the writer of "Iron Man," it sounds as if Riri might make an appearance in Civil War II. Since Riri Williams is supposed to be the new "Iron Man," will Tony Stark no longer be featured in the comics and movies? And will they change the name from "Iron Man" to "Iron Woman?"
