Why do you hate her so much? What's wrong with her? She's a girl super-genius who built armor. Her armor is much more hers than War-Machine's ever was his. Rhodey piloted the fighter jet. Riri not only pilots it but built it and maintains it. She's a fantastic role model for my granddaughters if I ever have any. She's awesome. Nor does she call herself Iron Man. She calls herself Ironheart. She's not trying to replace Tony. In fact I strongly suspect she will have a hand in finding and saving him.




I've been baffled by that myself. I found her run on the book mostly charming. Not flawless by any means; it needed to keep her grief a living part of the book, and give her villains who embodied the issues a young black woman would face. So not flawless, but charming nonetheless. I would have liked her to become a part of the cast. Maybe even be to Iron Man what Kitty and Jubilee were to Wolverine, and the Robins are to Batman.
