A solid issue with fun action. Someone is using street urchins to steal phones so the private information on them can be stolen for political purposes. Ironheart attempts to stop them only to be attacked by ninjas. Really nasty ninjas capable of hurting her with martial arts strikes despite the armor. When she finally defeats them, they teleport away.
So, last issue the Ten Rings get a mention, and now she fights guys with superhuman martial arts abilities who talk about how, "the wellspring of power, beyond your comprehension, flows through us." A reference to chi-mysticism, maybe? And who have teleportation technology.
I'm guessing the villain will turn out to be some student of The Mandarin. Someone trained in both mystic martial arts and alien science. And that this person will have a lot in common with Riri, but will have been twisted by everything that Riri transcended. Just a hunch.
