There was the petition seen by Marvel. There was the approach Marvel made. There was all the work, including Eve submitting a spec script outside of her usual and expected working practices. But the origins of poet and playwright Eve L. Ewing getting the Ironheart gig came from a number of tweets made last year, as Brian Michael Bendis, co-creator of Riri Williams and lead creator on the character, was leaving Marvel for DC Comics.
It started with a seeming joke.
Then a little friendly lookalike competition.
And a hashtag was born
And a petition launched by Tirhakah Love.
And the rest is history…
