Another major shakeup is headed toward Marvel Comics this fall, when 15-year-old Riri Williams assumes the mantle of Iron Man. Acclaimed writer Brian Michael Bendis created and will continue to write the character.
Riri Willams was recently introduced to the Invincible Iron Man series. This genius student attending M.I.T. on scholarship created her own suit of Iron Man armor. Though it is confirmed that she is taking Tony Stark's role as Iron Man, Bendis assures fans that they don't know the ending of Civil War II based on that information.
"More people are going to be upset that they think they know the ending to Civil War II
now than anything we just talked about," Bendis said in an interview with Time. "But I can tell you just because
we’re hearing what we’re saying doesn’t know you mean how Civil War II ends. We’re not telling you the end, at all."
Civil War II began recently, and will conclude this fall. Riri Williams joins Marvel's increasingly diverse cast of Avengers along with Kamala Khan and Miles Morales.
