I don't need to fight (but I can) to prove I'm right (which I am)--I don't need to be forgiven (damn right, girl)!
In the teenage wasteland of Chicago (and occasionally Cambridge, Mass.), RiRi Williams bears the burden of protecting absolutely everyone. Petty criminals, gang violence, corrupt officials, supervillains, and mysterious cabals, take your pick--she will protect YOU, yes you, from them, and also some of them from each other. And she's only 15 years old. We discuss RiRi's work-life balance, the higher standard of professional expectation for POC, vigilanteism (again), and the different approaches of Iron Man and Ironheart, amongst other topics.
