Riri Williams, also known as Ironheart, picked up the slack for Iron Man when he was put into a coma during Civil War 2. A skilled inventor, member of The Champions, and one of the smartest characters in the Marvel Universe, a 15 year old Ironheart was able to recreate Tony Stark's Iron Man armor using parts she "borrowed" from her school. Her suits functioned and operated on nearly every level the same way as Tony Stark's Iron Man suit, and even had a built in Tony Stark AI. Now in her new suit, a more aerodynamic and streamlined version of the classic Iron Man armor still fires repulsor beams, allows her to fly, and can interface with nearby technology. #28DaysOfBlackHistoryInComics#ironheart#ririwilliams#marvelcomics#marvel#comics#blackhistorymonth#blacksuperheroes#blackcomicbookcharacters

Genius Intelligence, Armor
Named after her father who died before she was born, RiRi Williams was raised in Chicago by her mother and stepfather. At age five, she was given a series of tests that showed she possessed a super genius level of intelligence. At age eleven, RiRi began attending Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It was there that she became fascinated with Tony Stark. She built herself a suit of armor by reverse-engineering one of Tony’s designs. She quit school after running into trouble with security while building the suit. When she returned home, RiRi found Tony Stark waiting for her. Tony supported RiRi in her decision to become a superhero, and even designed an Artificial Intelligence programmed to be exactly like him. RiRi adopted the identity of Ironheart.
