    Time has announced that Riri Williams will be taking over the Iron Man suit for Tony Stark.

    Riri is a science genius who enrolls in MIT at the age of 15. She comes to the attention of Tony when she builds her own Iron Man suit in her dorm. Creator and Iron Man writer Brian Michael Bendis spoke exclusively to Time about the creation of Riri Williams with book artist Stefano Caselli and Marvel’s increasingly diverse cast of characters.

    We know it from the silence

    Hard hitting opinion: I feel like with that much hair it would be difficult to get the helmet on.

    I'm not a fan of the name Riri, but I'll check his out. Never was a Tony Stark fan so it'll be cool to see someone els take over.

    That loneliness is not a function of solitude.

    Is this in preparation for Robert Downey Jr. to step down from the rolein the movies? Obviously that will have to happen sometime but that will be a sad, sad day. Iron Man is my favorite movie super hero basically just because of how he plays the role, so I hope he hangs onto it for a while.

    I don't really buy the idea of a 15 year old genius building their own iron main suit in their dorm. i mean, the 15 year old genius is more than plausible but just makes it almost feels "gimmicky" to take the genius away from Tony Stark (who RDJ excels at portraying) to a kid.

    I guess the M.O. at Marvel right now is to change every hero's identity. Jane Foster is still Thor, Amadeus Cho is still Hulk, X-23 is still Wolverine, Sam Wilson is still the main Captain America, and now Riri is gonna be Iron (wo)Man.

    I'm also surprised that Xavier and Logan have stayed dead for so long. Ballsy.

    ...I also miss Otto being in control of Peter Parker's body. That storyline would fit right in in current Marvel. That shit was goooooood!

    DC is actually going the exact opposite direction from Marvel right now, by bringing back some classic characters and returning a bunch of heroes back to familiar status quos.

    It's amazing what open source data and IP can facilitate. Think of it like current university students working on hyperloop pilot projects.
