    RIRI never impressed, me. Her intelligence just make her come of as a female tony stark clone to me. She fits right in with Marvels agenda to supplant it's powerful male archetypes with female versions.

I don't see it as supplanting. I suspect it's more a matter of supplementing.

Look, we're never going to believe that Tony Stark is ever going to be forever gone in a print sense (maybe more likely in a film sense, considering the issues of aging and salary). He'll be back. Marvel introduced a character with similar baseline characteristics (super-intelligent armorer hero), but different demographics to appeal to different markets. Suddenly, they get another IP, and one they can use in different ways to monetize different markets (and maybe tell a good story here and there). It doesn't invalidate or supplant the original version to diversify.

To put it another way - the existence of Jim Rhodes as War Machine doesn't mean Tony Stark is null and void, same as the existence of Riri doesn't mean Stark is null and void. It just means they can try to milk two dollars out of you rather than just one.
