Dedicated comic book readers will likely remember Riri Williams donning a suit of armor after the events of “Civil War II” and now she gets the chance to shine in a title of her own as “Ironheart”. Check out the press release and provided images from Marvel Comics PR.
The Press Release:
This November, Riri Williams is forging her own path…into a brand-new ongoing series! Announced today on The Chicago Tribune and Marvel.com, Riri’s new story will bring out her hometown roots with Eve L. Ewing at the helm, as the award-winning author of Electric Arches makes her Marvel debut! A poet, scholar and artist whose work has appeared in the New York Times and The Atlantic, Eve will be joined on the series by Champions artist Kevin Libranda.
“People don’t just gravitate toward Hulk or Captain America or Spider-Man because of their powers, the reason they say so-and-so is my favorite superhero is because of who they are as people and about what they stand for,” Ewing told The Chicago Tribune in an interview. “So I think the really exciting thing is really building out Riri, not as just Ironheart, but who is she as a person?”
First created by Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Deodato Jr., Riri made her Marvel Universe debut following the events of Civil War II, when she used her own teenage genius smarts to suit up in the wake of Tony Stark’s absence.
For more information, visit today’s articles at The Chicago Tribune and Marvel.com, and stay tuned for all of Riri’s new adventures, coming this November!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Hey I am always game for a first issue here at the Metal Media Command HQ and though I don’t know a whole lot about Riri Williams and her own armored Avenger Ironheart, I am sure curious to check it out and as I close this latest comic book announcement up I wonder what your stand on it is. Chime in down below as always. My guess is that I will see some promotional stuff for this exciting new title at the upcoming New York Comic Con which I will be attending once more as a member of the geek press. It’s going to be my 9th year attending and though I have some time before the news from that happening begin, I will encourage the interested to bookmark THIS TAG so they will see anything NYCC related as it goes live. See you next time.
