Riri Williams is Shortlisted for a Nobel Prize in the Marvel Universe

Posted by February 21, 2018 Comment

Riri Williams is a fifteen-year-old girl who created her own Iron Man-style suit and was mentored by Tony Stark – and an artificial intelligence version of Tony Stark into creating new armours and establishing the identity of Ironheart. And, in the absence of Tony Stark after Civil War II, taking the lead of the Invincible Iron Man comic.

And, for some, she is everything that is wrong with Marvel Comics. With Brian Bendis and Mike Deodato aking an established character and replacing them with a young black woman.

Even though, for some reason, the same complainers never had a reason with James Rhodes doing something similar. But that’s how it goes.

Well today’s final issue of The Defenders by Brian Bendis, David Marquez and Justin Posnor gives Bendis one last chance to thumb his nose at his critics. By giving us a detail on a Daily Bugle front page reporting the actions of the Defenders.

Riri Williams on the shortlist of the Nobel Prize in the Marvel Universe – and that some people in said Marvel universe aren’t happy about it.

You know, certain people in the DC Universe aren’t happy about Cyborg taking to the stand at the UN as the chairman of the Justice League either…
