In case you haven’t heard, the new Iron Man in the current run of Marvel Comics is a teenage black girl named Riri Williams. She’s taken on the mantle of the superhero since Tony Stark stepped down, and she goes by the name Ironheart.

But some students at MIT (where the fictional character went to college) decided to give Riri Williams her due diligence in a cool short film that proves not all heroes wear capes.
