IRONHEART Main Villain Description May Point To The MCU Debut Of The Hood

As the Disney+ Ironheart series continues to search for supporting cast members, a new character description may point to the Marvel Cinematic Universe debut of Parker Robbins, aka The Hood...

It was recently confirmed that Dominique Thorne will make her MCU debut as Riri Williams, aka Ironheart, in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever before going on to lead her own Disney+ series, and details on some of the villains she'll be facing off against have begun to emerge.

The Illuminerdi reported that the son - or daughter - of Iron Man baddie Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges) will make their Marvel Cinematic Universe debut during Ironheart last week, and the site has now shared a character breakdown for the show's main baddie, who is described as "charming, magnetic, slick, and oily. He’s always working an angle to his own advantage. He’s handsome with an athletic build. He also has a crew working for him."

There are quite a few villains that could fit this description, but the Illuminerdi believe it could well be The Hood. In the comics, Parker Robbins was a petty thief who gained some rather odd abilities after an encounter with a demon. The creature's boots gave him the power to levitate, while the cloak allowed him to turn invisible when he held his breath.

If this is Robbins, the character will most likely undergo a few changes for his live-action debut, and if he does indeed have a crew, there's a decent chance Stane will be part of it.

We still don't know a whole lot about Ironheart, but the show is expected to stick pretty closely to Riri's comic book origin as "the creator of the most advanced suit of armor since Iron Man." There's also been some speculation that the character could be retconned as a Wakandan since she'll feature in the Black Panther sequel, but we don't have anything to back that up.
