The new Iron (Wo)man!


In a time when female gamers are receiving regular death threats, and female nerds are still forced to “prove” their knowledge and interest on a subject it’s absolutely wonderful to see a company like Marvel take steps forward to be inclusive of female fans!  The new Iron (Wo)man not only represents undervalued female fans, but paints a positive role model for young black women.  The unfortunately named Riri, is a 15 year old MIT student who is smarter than Tony Stark.  I can’t wait to see more revealed about this character and will certainly be picking up the series.
