New Name for New Iron Man

Marvel is preparing to release their new Iron Man series, following woman lead Riri Williams. While discussing the new alias for the character they settled on Ironheart. They didn’t like the idea of naming her Iron Woman, that it would come off as old fashioned and negative to some readers. The choice to go with heart seemed to fit for many involved with the project. As fans will know, saving his heart was the reasoning for Tony Stark to first start on the path to being Iron Man. While Riri’s backstory is obviously different from Tony’s matters of the heart will remain a central theme with the comics. Writer Brian Michael Bendis said that the alias seemed perfect to everyone involved when they thought of it, and readers will likely respond the same way as well. The first issue will be out sometime this fall.
