Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is known for creating super cool videos to announce that admission letters are being sent out to potential students – and we think they might have just made the coolest one yet.
The video, Not all heroes wear capes — but some carry tubes, follows MIT student, Ayomide F, as Marvel's Riri Williams as she studies at MIT, assembles her badass armoured suit, and takes it out for a test flight.
The incredible Riri Williams was first introduced in the May 2016 issue of Invincible Iron Man. A 15-year-old engineering prodigy attending – you guessed it, MIT – Williams built her own suit from equipment she stole around campus.
In Marvel Comics lore, she eventually filled in for Tony Stark when he became sick; and took the name Ironheart as her superhero alias.
Speaking with The Boston Globe about the video, MIT’s dean of admissions, Stu Schmill said:
“Marvel uses MIT in their comic, so we figured, given we are MIT, it would be OK.”
With a brilliant black female superhero making a cameo this year and the adorable BB-8 delivering admissions letters last year, MIT might just be the coolest university out there.
