Arriving hot on the heels of that unforgettable trailer for Captain America: Steve Rogers, comes another visual treat for True Believers in the form of a new promo video celebrating Invincible Iron Man. Playing out as a motion comic, it brings readers up to speed on Marvel’s newest technologically inclined superhero, Ironheart.
Before we proceed any further, let’s check out the official synopsis from Marvel:
Superstar writer Brian Michael Bendis and rising star Stefano Caselli introduce the Marvel Universe to the newest armored hero on the block. Clad in her very own suit of homemade Iron Man armor, Riri is out to prove that anyone can change the world. Not to mention she has an A.I. helping her along the way – the downloaded consciousness of Tony Stark himself! Not to mention a special pep talk from Pepper Potts, a.k.a Rescue! With all this help in her corner, she can’t lose right? That is…if she survives her first mission!
Even if you were previously unfamiliar with the character of Riri Williams, a 15 year old MIT student, you can probably tell that she’s a kindred spirit to Tony Stark if there ever were one. With new young heroes inheriting mantles left and right at Marvel, we can only wonder how long it will take for one of them to make the jump to the silver screen. The recent announcement of 2018’s animated Spider-Man film focusing on Miles Morales was not only the first big step in that direction, but also came as a breath of fresh air.
