00:06
back to the channel
00:08
okay so today we're gonna be talking
00:09
about Iron Heart number one three 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

14:40
twelve by evil Ewing and Luciana Vecchio
