The fictional Marvel Comics character, Iron Man, is to be made 20% more fictional. The character already has many unrealistic qualities such as being able to fly around in a metal suit battling super villains and cosmic threats. Yet further unrealistic qualities are to be added. “Iron man will be a genius 15 year old black woman,” says Marvel writer Brian Michael Bendis.
“I thought a Pym particle was pretty unrealistic, and the Silver Surfer,” says one Marvel fan, “but a super-genius black woman is stretching credibility a bit much. I’ve seen world star hip hop.”
