Marvel recently introduced a pseudo-heir to Tony Stark’s mantle as Iron Man. Riri Williams, a teenage genius, would pilot an armour similar to shellhead’s, dubbed Ironheart.

Of course, Riri, being an African-American female instigated the furor of bigots and idiots around the world along with a very specific group of comic book readers whose combined IQ amount to 5, and yet can somehow read.

Despite all of that, the character has been celebrated by people not from the stoneage and has now been given her own live action short film… just not by Marvel.

Trust MIT to not only make the 14th of March a big deal, but to also do it in an awesome way (last year’s video featured BB-8!).
