Riri Williams is a 15-year old genius in engineering. She has created the most advanced suit of armor ever since Iron Man was able to do it. In the Marvel comics, Williams goes to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where she was able to develop her suit similar to an armor suit.

Her ability caught the attention of Tony Stark who supports her efforts while helping her grow in the comics. Now that Stark is dead in the MCU, the series might take a different direction and bring in a new mentor who will guide her.
