there is actually a fan comic set up by Diversity in Comics where it is revealed she is a villian. and i have to admit very convincingly since she essentially demanded to be oppressed and her teacher going along with it is the main reason she built an iron man suit. which she built my stealing materials from her college she got a scholarship to

There was another hero who started his heroic career by stealing a superhero suit. Guess who? Scott Lang. The second Ant-Man. And Hank Pym let him KEEP the suit.

I've been following a review of her title on YT.  I'm starting to think Bendis is trolling.  She appears to be autistic and she's named 'Riri'?  Her behavior and backstory closer match traditional Marvel villains.  And in the Doctor Doom book, by the same writer, she comes off looking like an idiot.

Riri Williams 'appears to be autistic'? That's an unusual interpretation. Why do you say that? Because Riri likes tinkering on armor and techno gadgets, there has to be something wrong with her? How many heroes spend long hours in a lab or gym? Riri communicates normally, has high cognitive development, had a best friend who was killed by gun violence, joined the Champions (other heroes her age), and has empathy for others (wants to help people). Doesn't sound autistic. Or like a villain. A villain would declare war on gun-toting criminals and zap 'em all with repulsors, be an Iron Punisher.
Riri is a rookie hero, and will make rookie mistakes.
I agree Bendis exaggerated the genius thing when the therapist warned her parents to treat her very carefully, but I think he was just being dramatic.
Great art, by the way, Inspector97!

I meant (slash the commentator who actually read and was giving synopsis meant) because she needs 'Tony' to identify famous people, and interpret English to English.  Or the staring at her teacher like a crazy person for an extended period until the teacher 'oppressed' her.

As to the villain stuff, her origins involve stealing, and being convinced she knows better than others.  Common traits in several classic Marvel villains.

Like who you want, don't let me or anyone else dissuade you.  I like some unpopular characters as well.

Lots of people don't know much of popular culture, because they're busy doing other things.
Anyone with an ounce of smarts would ask Tony Stark for advice because he has a wealth of knowledge and experience. Although I think the AI is too much of a crutch. Riri should figure things out on her own.
The writer was trying to show how Tony Stark inspired Riri, but wanted to do it in a different way. I think you're reading things into it that aren't intended when you say she 'stared at her teacher like a crazy person'. Probably wanted to show that Riri is a determined young woman.
A villain because she steals? You mean like Robin Hood, or Bilbo the Hobbit stealing from Smaug, or the Fantastic Four stealing the rocket that sent them into space? Anyway, it's never specified what Riri took. Probably just lab supplies and discarded  junk.
You have to ignore the fanfiction. Most of it is meant to stroke the ego of the writer. It's all "I'm going to take control of the character and have them do things they'd never do in their book/film/TV show, like falling in love with this or that character, getting married/having kids, or becoming a villain, killing people, etc.

I'm in the same boat.  I'm curious if anyone actually reading it sees the same.

Assuming there are actual readers to go with the sales for Marvel Comics these days.

Ya, at the risk of sounding controversial, I'll jump in, and explain what I know.
She is not diagnosed with autism yet, but since Reed Richards has self-diagnosed Asperger Syndrome, Riri could have it too.

She was designed to be a black superhero to take over for Tony Stark as Marvel's Iron Man character.  This was done for two reasons.  The first is to have stories for a non-War Machine replacement for Tony Stark when Robert Downy Jr. retires from the role.  (The same way Old Man Logan is being written to have source material in case Hugh Jackman ever wants to come to the MCU.)  The second is to have a diverse character for marketing, which is the 'it' thing right now at Marvel.

The problem with the character is that there is already a character for this, Lila Rhodes (James Rhodes/War Machines niece) who has been completely forgotten in favor of giving Riri the spotlight.
The other problem with the character is that she doesn't have any flaws.  She is not relate-able, everything comes to her with no problems, and everyone gives her what she wants/needs without any conflict.  She is constantly praised, and as a result isn't interesting.  (She'd be a better DC character than a Marvel one.)
In her latest issue, Riri has her origin, where her teacher tells her she can be anything she wants to be, and she asks him to be more biased against her so that she can become famous.

The idea of her becoming a villain was pushed by a youtube personality, who constantly talks down these types of comics.  (I think it's the channel 'Diversity in Comics') But the idea is catching on with the critics that this might be a way to salvage the character.


Nice cover though!

Thanks for expanding/clarifying.  You explained my point much better than I did.

The heroic journey is long and difficult. You can't expect it to be the same for everyone. Having her become a villain seems like something a hack writer would do.
Riri has problems. But it's mainly superhero problems. It takes time to develop a character, and Bendis is wayyy slow. When he wrote 40 issues of the all new (young) X-Men, I think like 3 things happened to the characters to change them and make them more interesting.
Marvel ignores a lot of characters. I could give you a list, but it's way too long, and it's late.
And they don't call it Aspergers anymore. It's 'Autism Spectrum Disorder'. Personally, I think it's because Aspergers didn't sound like a real disease or disability.

Don't worry, Bendis won't turn her into a villain.  I can see her failing at something, complaining to the other heroes and SHIELD that they were going easy on her because of her demographic, and pushing herself to be a better hero.

I do think she'd be more at home in DC than Marvel though.  (Of course, I think the same thing of the Black Panther, as he protects his own country and has much fewer flaws than his fellow Avengers.)

You can say these things about any character. When the new Ms. Marvel appeared, she didn't have any flaws, everyone liked her (except the snooty girl at school) and people gave her stuff (Bruno gave her the armbands, Medusa gave her Lockjaw). Kamala's a Muslim teen in Jersey City - how is that relatable?? The new Wasp, the same thing. When she first appeared, everyone liked her and gave her stuff, like membership in the Avengers and Hank Pym's lab. She was a prisoner for 18 years - how is that relatable?

I agree. I would rather see new characters made well and interesting then riding on the coat tales of established heroes. Especially if they are anything but white.... there is a sad trend of race changing known characters...just to get some in. JUST MAKE GOOD CHARACTERS
