WIRED is reporting that not only would Tony Stark step down as Iron Man, he’d be passing the role to a young science prodigy known as Riri Williams.
Not only would character change but so would name change as Williams would be known as Iron heart. The prodcuers had played around with themes like Iron Woman and Iron Maiden but they arrived at Iron Heart.
Williams, who enrolled at MIT at 15, reverse-engineered a suit of power armor in her dorm room—but that doesn’t mean Stark won’t be part of the Iron Man ethos: Riri’s in-armor A.I. will based on Tony’s own personality.
Now we’ll just have to wait and see if Bendis can tell an Ironheart story as great as the ones he’s given Tony Stark over the years.
