In tomorrow’s new comics, Marvel Comics has announced that brand new Iron Man, Riri Williams, will die.
“This is a brand new twist on comic book deaths,” says Marvel writer Brian Michael Thomas. “Never has a character been introduced by dying.”
“We’ve killed off everyone at least once, so we had to create new characters to kill,” continues Jan Michael Bendis.
Marvel spokesperson Brian Michael Hall adds, “Riri was introduced to readers in preview images earlier this week and in this fast paced social media world we feel that’s enough time for our readers to build a relationship with Riri. Her death will rock the scores of fans she has made with this image we released earlier in July.”
Civil War II is on stands tomorrow.
