Mini Bio: RiRi is a 15 year old girl who grew up with her mother and her aunt in Chicago. After getting into M.I.T., RiRi designed her own Iron Man armour in secret, using materials stolen from the campus. When campus security came knocking, she escaped while wearing the armour, so to not get into trouble.
While wearing the armour, she discovers two inmates trying to escape from prison, and stops them from doing so, which gains Tony Stark’s, the original inventor of the Iron Man armour, attention. He goes to talk to her, and decides to endorse her and her use of the armour.
