You just know Brian Michael Bendis is saving the best for last.

One of those revelations involves a master scientist taking control of Riri’s armor.

Who could be so smart to hack Riri’s suit? Why, none other than one of the first ever S.H.I.E.L.D. agents.

Yep, that’s Leonardo da Vinci. He was last seen in Secret Warriors #28 and his appearance here might be why rumors have Jonathan Hickman joining Marvel Comics once again. Either way, what he says is more important as he seems to suggest a new agency needs to be created to fill the void of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the two who may run it are Riri Williams and Toni Ho.

Not only does this give Riri a whole new direction, but it brings into question who might be helping the heroes on the ground in future battles.

There’s even more news coming out of this issue all about Tony Stark’s dad, read it here.
