Marvel Pulls J. Scott Campbell’s Riri Williams Iron Man Cover

Only a day after the cover was revealed, Marvel and Midtown Comics have decided to pull its retailer exclusive “Invincible Iron Man” #1 variant that portrays Riri Williams in what some interpret to be a sexualized depiction of the character. The cover, by J. Scott Campbell, drew some criticism from fans and creators for its portrayal of the teen hero.

Marvel and Midtown decided to pull the cover in a joint decision. Another variant, depicting the same pose, but with Riri in full Ironheart armor, will still be released by Midtown.
