In July, TIME exclusively reported that Marvel’s new Iron Man would be Riri Williams, a young black woman with an inspiring back story, but she didn’t have a superhero name yet.

Now, Marvel tells Wired that after considering different options, her official new name will be Ironheart.

Apparently this brilliant superhero hits MIT at just 15. Bendis and artist Stefano Caselli will create Ironheart’s story — and the first issue is due out this November.

For a conversation with Bendis on creating the character, a young college woman with a tragic past, read TIME’s Q&A here.
