Marvel series Ironheart has been in the headlines in Chicago all year, and the new franchise has finally landed in Chicago, filming around town this week. And the iron-clad character has also been making a splash on the commercial front, as Ironheart is featured in a new spot for Target. The short serves to highlight the important place of young black women in the fields of science and technology.
The six-episode Ironheart, created by Chinaka Hodge, stars Dominique Thorne as Marvel character Riri Williams, a genius inventor and creator of the most advanced suit of armor since Iron Man.

Caught up in trying to figure out a feasible resource for her creation, Williams gains inspiration from a young girl who also is exploring the construction of a renewable energy source. At the end of the ad spot, Williams is successful and is seen testing out the right-hand repulsor.
