Reply Subj: Does anyone like Lady Thor? How about Ironheart?

I dont mind Jane as Thor. At least she is a natural fit to take over the character for a while, as she is so closely associated with the book. Likewise I thought the same of Sam Wilson as Cap.
Riri Williams meanwhile I cant stand.
From the fact that they clearly killed Rhodes off because theres no way that Stark could possibly have two black friends, or that anyone would take Riri seriously as Starks successor whilst Rhodes was still around; to the fact that she was so hastily shoe-horned into the role despite doing nothing more significant than stopping a truck; to the fact that Stark now seems to endorse child endangerment; to the fact that she's a terribly bland Mary Sue who has been promoted entirely along her census traits of being black, young, and female, rather than any interesting character traits; to the fact that Marvel want to have their cake and eat it by calling a book about a female child called Ironheart 'Ironman'.
She god-damn awful.
