Iron Man Female Won’t Be Iron Woman

iron814They could have gone for Iron Woman – or perhaps Iron Maiden – but the creators of Riri Williams, the black woman who is set to don the suit of Iron Man later this year, have revealed that the character will be known as Ironheart. Williams is a science genius who enrolled in MIT at the age of 15, and who has been shown reverse-engineering for one of the current Iron Man Tony Stark’s suits in her dorm room. She will begin her story in November, in the Marvel comic Invincible

Iron Man #1, and the story’s author Brian Michael Bendis has told Wired that she will be known as Ironheart.
