Welcome the new Iron Man… Riri Williams

YES!! I’m ALL IN for the new Iron Man Riri Williams! So today Marvel Comics released big news today about the future of Iron Man. Seems that Tony Stark will take a backseat post Civil War II and 15 year old Riri Williams, a new character that’s been introduced in the current Invincible Iron Man comic series will be the next Iron Man. Riri has been introduced as a genius-level 15 year-old working on her own Iron Man suit at MIT. This news ties into the solicitations of Civil War II issue 7 where there’s the big question if Iron Man / Tony Stark dies (which you can read about here).

Marvel will relaunched Invincible Iron Man #1 will be by current writer Brian Bendis and artist Stefano Caselli.

Our fellow BtS writer / podcaster has a great tweet about the new Iron Man news.

This is not the first time there’s been a new Iron Man. The biggest issue here is that the general audience & fandom are so used to their Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark / Iron Man – they can’t see or understand this change. Change can be good. This could turn out to be a GREAT new spin on Iron Man and put Tony Stark to rest / background for a while. It could NOT work out but I’d prefer to see the comic companies TRY for change vs yet another boring ARMOR WARS storyline for Iron Man or such.


To all the Racist & Misogynists HATERS – FUCK OFF! This fandom has NO time for your crap! DO something with yourself than spewing your hate on comic books. If you don’t like the idea, don’t buy the comic book but social media doesn’t need to hear your thoughts on the matter.
