Ironheart Series will Allegedly Introduce the Child of Obadiah Stane

With Hawkeye successfully finding his protégé in Kate Bishop, things are looking up for the next generation of Avengers. One other show Disney+ is working on is Ironheart which will introduce us to Iron Man successor Riri Williams (Dominique Thorne), and word has it that the series will be bringing back the offspring of a Phase 1 villain.

As per The Illuminerdi, the son/daughter of Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges) is said to be appearing in the Ironheart series. It’s possible that this character could be based on Zeke Stane from the comics, but the series is said to be looking at gender-swapping the role. The character is described as “in their 40s, brilliant, and comedic,”–sounds kind of like Tony Stark when we met him in the first Iron Man.

With Tony Stark having died in Endgame, there probably won’t be a chance for us to watch some kind of ‘passing of the torch’ moment when it comes to Riri, but I guess that’s going to be the challenge that Marvel has with this series. There’s even word going around that they could retcon Riri to be coming from Wakanda to explain how she was able to develop a suit more advanced than Tony Stark’s—that’s also said to be the reason why she’s going to be appearing in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Going back to Stane though, he proved to be a serviceable villain in the first Iron Man, and I’m interested to see how his kid turned out. With him being propped to be Tony’s father figure in the first Iron Man, I would imagine his jealous son would have tried his best to gain his father’s approval by trying to emulate Tony best he could—only he’s Tony before the life-changing experience in the terrorist cave.

It’s just a pitch.

No release date has been set for Ironheart on Disney+, but Riri is said to be making her debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever which hits theaters on Nov. 11.
