Introducing A Black, Female Iron Man For 2016 – Name Withheld (SPOILERS)

STL004186At the end of Invincible Iron Man #7, we met a new character, Riri Williams. who appeared to be building an Iron Man suit of her own in her college dorm.

This is the cover to this week's Invincible Iron Man #9.

Some have speculated that this is Mary Jane Watson in the suit. With the resultant Iron Mary memes. But it's not.

It's Riri. And it's enough to get her kicked out of school. Even if her character doesn't have a name yet.

Those who have encountered other spoilers around the place might know why she'll be up…

Here's a preview of the comic by Brian Bendis and Mike Deodato, out this week.
