Riri could have been such a cool character, kind of a blend of Buffy and Doctor Who. All they needed to do was keep her grief over dead loved ones as a living part of her character, and have her protect people she cares about from serious danger. That's it. That's all. Really simple, basic stuff.

Instead her book has the same problem that Iron Man has often had: it's the dry story of someone with impersonal, unrelatable goals. Stark's story has often been a dark kind of dry, and Riri's is a light and fluffy sort of dry, but it's still just utter dryness. Why is it so hard to fix this utter dryness?
