twelve 00:12 by Yves l ughing 00:14 and Luciano Vecchio and in this video 00:16 we're gonna talk about is how RiRi 00:18 Williams gained access to the wellspring 00:22 of power how she stepped out from 00:25 Ironman shadow and more importantly how 00:28 she reconnected with someone she thought 00:31 was dead we're gonna talk about all that 00:34 and more right now but first let's see 00:36 third intro on the arena one is brother 00:40 lies gave reaching for these songs they 00:43 prefer the lies that's any beautiful a 00:45 trip then have purple lies you can't see 00:47 me you Stevie Wonder we have our brief 00:49 smart evidences that let me make it up 00:51 before we get started if you want to see 00:53 more awesome comic book videos like this 00:55 wing it only takes two clicks to become 00:57 one of Earth's Mightiest subscribers 00:59 click quick okay so her first encounter 01:04 in ironheart number one is with the 01:07 character of clash was a on-again 01:09 off-again spider-man villain and Ally 01:12 and it goes about as well as one would 01:15 expect but the real thing that's going 01:17 on is ironheart comic is the fact that 01:19 evil Ewing has created something out of 01:23 remnants of the MCU things that were 01:26 kind of tossed around and thrown away in 01:28 the MCU she brings to the Marvel Comics 01:32 universe and that's the ten rings you 01:36 see the group that you know we associate 01:38 with the Mandarin in the MCU now exists 01:41 in the Marvel Comics universe is being 01:44 headed up by Midnight's fire now you 01:47 would be forgiven if you didn't know who 01:49 Midnight's fire was he is a character 01:51 who debuted in new warriors number two 01:55 back in 1998 01:57 he's a character who was always a thorn 02:00 in the side of knight Thrasher of the 02:03 new Warriors they were there's two 02:04 characters were always connected and 02:06 he's kind of been mi a for quite some 02:09 time until now and right now he's set 02:12 his sights on iron-hard but more 02:15 specifically because iron heart has been 02:17 investigating the disappearances of all 02:19 these random teenagers one of which is 02:21 one of her childhood friends Dasia 02:24 something screwy is going on Midnight's 02:26 fire he's wrapped up in some scheme 02:28 where he's just collecting all of these 02:30 random and sundry kids but we never 02:33 really learned exactly why he's doing it 02:35 yeah he's doing it for some shady 02:37 politician but there's something deeper 02:39 that's going on and has nothing to do 02:41 with what RiRi has learned about him not 02:44 only that he's stalking her he's showing 02:46 up randomly at her house unannounced 02:47 clearly knowing exactly who she is and 02:50 where she lives and is pretty much kind 02:52 of letting her know that he could show 02:54 up at any moment and run her fade no 02:57 questions asked now the thing is he 02:59 doesn't necessarily just pull up 03:01 willy-nilly for no reason 03:03 Midnight's fire wants to offer RiRi 03:06 Williams a place in the ten rings 03:09 he feels like RiRi Williams has 03:11 everything it takes 03:12 he feels like she has unparalleled 03:15 intelligence unmatched ingenuity and if 03:19 he could combine her talents with the 03:22 already considerable power of the ten 03:24 rings alongside the wellspring of power 03:28 then the ten rings would be unstoppable 03:30 he wants reread to be his heir to the 03:34 ten rings he wants her to control 03:36 everything when it's all said and done 03:38 now there's a deeper reason for this why 03:41 he's offering RiRi this I guess what you 03:43 would call an opportunity of a lifetime 03:45 man it goes deeper than the fact that 03:47 RiRi kept the emblem of the ten rings 03:49 that she took from clash but he clearly 03:52 doesn't know RiRi well enough because 03:54 RiRi has not forgotten that minimus fire 03:57 kidnapped 03:58 Dasia that he basically endangered the 04:01 lives of other people and RiRi doesn't 04:03 see herself as a weapon and if that's 04:05 all he sees her as 04:07 they have nothing else to talk about 04:09 especially when you consider the history 04:11 the riri has had with losing people to 04:14 weapons people who worship violence and 04:16 weaponry and even though RiRi blows off 04:19 his offer 04:20 Midnight's fire still hasn't given up on 04:22 her yet because at the end of the day he 04:24 wants her in the ten rings above all 04:27 else because there is someone he has 04:29 made a member of the ten rings that 04:31 would create a situation an opportunity 04:33 for RiRi Williams that she would not be 04:36 able to refuse and at the end of the day 04:39 this is exactly why RiRi become so hung 04:41 up on the wellspring of power she's 04:44 obsessed with it now she can't let it go 04:46 she has to find out exactly what it is 04:48 Midnight's fire is doing because 04:51 whatever it is it clearly can't be good 04:53 and if she's willing to put everything 04:54 in her life on hold she must find the 04:59 wellspring of power first it's not until 05:02 later on after encounters with Miles 05:05 Morales and the wasp that we learned 05:08 there's a bigger plan while RiRi is 05:10 hanging out with Nadia showing off her 05:13 new lab eclipse a new character seems to 05:16 be in league with Midnight's fire and 05:18 she's turning everyone into zombies but 05:21 not thee oh you're turning your dad for 05:24 real and never coming back kind but the 05:25 oh you're dead for real but only not for 05:27 real for real because once the spell is 05:29 broken 05:30 you're back to normal despite how dead 05:31 you look kind huh Eclipse is planning 05:34 something big but we don't really know 05:36 what that is yet but whatever it is it's 05:39 tied to the wellspring of power and this 05:42 is not something that has come up for 05:43 the first time this is something that 05:45 Midnight's fire has brought up to her in 05:48 previous issues all roads keep heading 05:51 back here and others are in on it too 05:54 including Tomo a a character RiRi 05:57 already put hands on back in 2016 06:00 invincible Iron Man comic things really 06:03 come to a head for RiRi tho when 06:05 Midnight's fire seemingly back to 06:07 torment her once more has stolen 06:09 something from the sanctum sanctorum 06:11 roughly about the time that she's 06:13 already heading me 06:14 to ask dr. strange about the wellspring 06:17 the item stolen is the stone of Halla a 06:20 stone that can give access to reality 06:22 itself to those who are skilled enough 06:24 in the mystic arts to use it strange 06:26 needs that stone back and those strange 06:29 isn't crazy about showing RiRi what and 06:32 where the wellspring is he does so 06:35 anyway at least on the off chance that 06:37 it'll help him get the stone back and 06:39 wouldn't you know who won the pony it's 06:40 in Wakanda 06:42 now at the moment this is happening to 06:44 China is still gallivanting around in 06:45 space he's yet to return to Earth so 06:48 rear e's first wakandan encounter is 06:50 with his sister cherie this goes about 06:52 as well as anyone who is very well 06:55 versed in both the characters of cherie 06:56 and iron heart would likely expect two 06:59 type-a personalities both incredibly 07:02 self-assured self-reliant incredibly 07:04 gifted an intellect typically the 07:06 smartest people in this or any other 07:08 room and both are ridiculously stubborn 07:11 they hate each other at first but the 07:14 sudden attack of shadow demons not too 07:17 dissimilar from the zombies RiRi and 07:18 nadia fought before brings them together 07:21 watching each other fight to save 07:23 wakandans and realizing they're really 07:26 the same person striving for the same 07:27 thing makes them work together and it 07:30 doesn't hurt but they get some outside 07:32 help from another hero silhouette former 07:36 and soon to be again new warrior and 07:38 Midnight's fires own sister now you're 07:41 probably asking why does silhouette give 07:44 a damn about the wellspring of power why 07:46 is she in Wakanda well for those that 07:48 don't remember the wellspring of power 07:50 debuted in New Warriors number 24 in 07:53 1992 originally known as the well of all 07:57 things well now is the wellspring of 07:59 power and it's directly tied to her 08:02 grandmother tie once a daughter of the 08:04 Dragon's Breath planned on killing any 08:06 and all who would possibly gain the 08:08 power of the wellspring so she could 08:11 have it all to herself in silhouette is 08:13 technically a daughter of the dragon's 08:15 breath too so she is a 08:17 sensitive about people trying to go all 08:19 mad with power from the wellspring 08:21 together they're able to track down the 08:24 wellspring and the ten rings but there's 08:27 one problem one of the Rings is someone 08:30 from Ruiz past who she's always missed 08:33 but never actually known her father her 08:36 biological father to be precise we all 08:39 remember that her stepfather was 08:41 murdered in a drive-by shooting 08:43 alongside her best friend Natalie now 08:46 we've never actually seen her dad her 08:48 biological dad before now except only 08:50 just in maybe passing mentions and 08:53 things of that nature 08:54 Bree Ruiz mom never really talked about 08:56 him very often all we really know is 08:58 that when RiRi stepdad died her mother 09:01 said not again not like this 09:04 implying that rarest biological father 09:06 suffered a very similar if not the exact 09:09 same fate long thought dead via a 09:11 drive-by shooting not unlike her 09:13 stepfather and her best friend after the 09:15 fact 09:15 Demetrius Williams was in fact alive all 09:18 this time you know the old story about 09:21 the father who leaves to go to the gas 09:23 station to get a pack of cigarettes and 09:25 never returns home yeah same thing only 09:27 Demetrius didn't have a choice in the 09:29 matter 09:30 he was donating plasma to make some 09:32 extra money to help feed his family only 09:34 the place he donated had other plans 09:37 like injecting men mostly vagrants 09:40 homelesses people no one was seemingly 09:42 missed supposedly with a special 09:44 experimental serum most of the test 09:47 subjects died the ones who didn't were 09:50 detained indefinitely 09:51 Demetrius was the latter only getting 09:54 his freedom after developing the ability 09:56 to control the ground beneath himself 09:58 suddenly thanks to that serum 10:00 he's a geomancer now he never returned 10:03 home he doesn't even really seem to 10:05 remember having a family he doesn't even 10:07 remember his government name and now he 10:09 only goes by the name do 10:11 and he's kind of become the opposite of 10:13 what he was known as to re reason mother 10:15 he's cold callous and very much a 10:18 jerkface wielding the stone of Halla 10:20 against any who dare stop him from 10:23 achieving his goal and he's even 10:24 prepared to sacrifice riri cherie and a 10:28 co yae to get what he wants 10:31 unlimited power because that's the end 10:34 game open the wellspring gained the 10:37 power infinite become the next vanos the 10:39 next Galactus the next beyond er the 10:43 next what you get the idea only problem 10:46 is after using the Pym particles Nadia 10:48 gifted her after their last run together 10:50 RiRi is able to get free and steal the 10:53 stone of hollaback only she falls into 10:55 the wellspring with it but it doesn't 10:57 kill her because since our Father can 10:59 use the stone of Halla so can she 11:01 it's all related to bloodlines she's 11:04 able to see multiple realities going 11:07 down a road of existentialism wondering 11:09 if because her father is a villain does 11:12 that mean she's destined to become one 11:14 too will she become evil has she always 11:17 been heading down this road this is 11:19 something that RiRi has struggled with 11:21 over the course of 12 issues of this 11:24 comic wondering whether or not one day 11:26 she is going to become the bad guy 11:28 always being down on herself always 11:30 doubting herself always feeling is 11:32 though one day she's gonna turn on the 11:34 one she cares about and of course it's 11:37 the thing that her stepfather always 11:38 told her that kind of helps keep her 11:41 moving forward at the same that's become 11:43 synonymous with her character those who 11:46 move with courage make the path for 11:49 those who live with fear in the well 11:52 Spring has shown her that she has a 11:54 choice showing her all the good in 11:57 herself and all the good that she's done 11:59 for others blood may decide who can use 12:02 the stone of haleh's sure but her life 12:05 is her own and she proves it defeating 12:08 not just her father but the ten rings as 12:10 a whole now that she's super charged 12:13 with its power now does she keep this 12:15 newfound supercharged power likely not 12:19 we really don't know what the 12:20 long-lasting effects of this are gonna 12:21 be because she doesn't really 12:23 show any signs of still having it after 12:25 she returns from the wellspring now we 12:27 do know that Daryl Taylor Knight 12:28 Thrashers father he was exposed to the 12:31 wellspring for weeks on in and somehow 12:34 it affected his DNA did not necessarily 12:36 give him powers or abilities but it did 12:39 happen to pass down to night Thrasher 12:42 the ability to protect himself from 12:44 psionic attacks and of course nine 12:46 Thrasher's brother bandit he was able to 12:49 manipulate bioelectricity someone some 12:51 way shape from a fashion this well does 12:53 seem to have long-term effects at the 12:55 very least on one's children but we 12:57 don't really know if that's actually 12:58 even gonna affect RiRi and even if it 13:01 does the girl is literally 1516 years 13:04 old by the time of this comic so it's 13:07 not really a thing I don't think she's 13:08 gonna have babies anytime soon either 13:10 way it doesn't matter because Cherie has 13:13 now shut off and sealed away the 13:15 wellspring in Wakanda so that no one 13:18 will ever use it again and RiRi goes 13:21 back to her life hanging with her 13:22 friends Xavier in deja life seems to be 13:25 back to normal for RiRi at least for now 13:28 we do know the coming up in 2020 Ironman 13:31 we know that Arno Stark is gonna be 13:34 coming after Natalie RiRi say I base off 13:37 the lightness and thought processes of 13:39 her best friend who was killed alongside 13:41 her stepfather and we also know that the 13:44 outlawed story arc is coming out and 13:46 that will definitely have an impact on 13:48 rereads superheroing career as it will 13:51 also affect her fellow champions miles 13:54 Kamala 13:55 Nadia among others but anyways I really 13:58 like this series I think evil Ewan did 13:59 an amazing job with RiRi Williams this 14:01 comic she made RiRi Williams into a 14:04 character that I feel is far more easier 14:07 to believe and just really works and I'm 14:10 not even gonna be the guy to say that I 14:11 just like what Brian Michael Bendis did 14:14 with the character I think that he wrote 14:15 RiRi as well as any white person could 14:18 write a black character but it just goes 14:20 to show how much more believable black 14:23 characters can be and become when 14:26 they're written by black people more 14:29 specifically a female black superhero 14:32 by a black female writer but anyways 14:35 that's neither here nor there but 14:36 anyways let me know what you thought 14:38 about ironheart number one through 14:40 twelve by evil Ewing and Luciana Vecchio 14:44
