How to be a Super Hero

I was super excited to find out that my sort of doppelgänger, Lunella Lafayette was the smartest super hero in the Marvel Universe. Then I found out that the latest incarnation of Iron Man, was going to be a 15 year old MIT genius named Riri Williams. Riri is a black girl with giant afro. This made my heart sing.

Inclusion is such a blessing and its nice to see a monolith like Marvel jumping into the diversity pool. This NPR article from a few months back made me fall deeply and madly in love with Marvel again. They are planning special edition covers to promote girls in STEAM fields. The covers will feature the fly girls of Marvel,  Riri, Lunella and Gwenpool. I’m gonna be spending a lot of money on comic books.
