Marvel's new female Iron Man, Riri Williams now has her own alias to go by - Ironheart.
Revealed by writer Brian Michael Bendis to Wired, Ironheart will gain her name within the pages of the first issue of the relaunched invincible Iron Man.
“Iron Woman seemed old fashioned to some,” Bendis explains in a discussion about the new name. “Iron Maiden looked like a legal nightmare. And Ironheart, coined by Joe Quesada, after I told him my planned story for Riri, speaks not only to the soul of the character but to the Iron Man franchise as a whole.
Back in May, Opera launched a free unlimited VPN app for iOS, and today the same thing has finally become available for Android devices. You can find it in the Google Play Store. It's simply called Opera Free VPN, and unlike the Norwegian company's other VPN app, Opera Max, this one doesn't compress your traffic or anything like that. It's just a standard VPN app, but free and with unlimited traffic - no subscription needed. It does have a couple of twists, though. First off, it comes with a Wi-Fi test tool that will tell you how secure the wireless network you are currently connected...
Arrow is introducing Christopher Chance, AKA Human Target, in Season 5 and he'll be played by someone familiar with comic book adaptations - Jessica Jones actor Wil Traval.
According to TVLine, Traval will make his debut as the DC Comics hero in Season 5's fifth episode, when Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) becomes his new client. For those unfamiliar with the character, Human Target is a bodyguard who can disguise himself, using this ability to take on the identities of people who are being targeted by assassins.
Marvel's Agents of SHIELD has gained a new cast member in Galavant star Mallory Jansen.
According to TVLine, the actress will appear in Season 4 as the robot Aida.
It's important to note that the Season 3 finale teased LMDs, and prior reports claim these Life-Model Decoys, which are perfect robotic replicas of characters used throughout the comics, will indeed appear in Season 4. As such, Jansen's character will likely be referred to as an LMD rather than a robot.

Bit too much, innit?
Man of Steel actor Henry Cavill is teasing a new, darker look for Superman.
In a post on Instagram, Cavill shared a close-up image of an all-black Superman costume, similar to the one seen in 1992's Death of Superman story arc in the comics.
Warning: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice spoilers follow.
In Dawn of Justice, Superman ultimately sacrifices himself to assure the Trinity's victory over Doomsday. However, following Clark Kent's funeral service, the movie ends with a shot of dirt rising from his grave, leaving the hero's fate up in the air.
Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. and True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto are reportedly teaming up for a drama project at HBO.
Variety reports Downey Jr. will star in the project -- which is a series, not a television movie, according to the outlet's sources -- with Pizzolatto writing. Both Downey Jr. and Pizzolatto will serve as executive producers as well.
Downey Jr. as Tony Stark
According to the report, the project may be a Perry Mason reboot, which Downey Jr. and Warner Bros. initially revealed as a feature film in 2011.
Composer John Williams has confirmed to a crowd at a live concert he will soon begin work on Star Wars: Episode VIII.
According to Masslive, Williams said he will begin work in a few weeks after seeing an early cut of the movie.
Masslive reports Williams "said he accepted the invitation from Lucasfilm producer Kathleen Kennedy mainly because he was enchanted by actress Daisy Ridley's portrayal of Rey and does not want another composer scoring her scenes."
Star Wars isn't the only long running franchise Williams is staying attached to. A couple of months ago director Steven Spielberg revealed the prolific composer will be coming back to score the next Indiana Jones film.
Although no two GPU launches are ever exactly alike, I think this year’s launch of the FinFET generation GPUs really drives that point home. Over the last 3 months we have seen an incredibly compact launch schedule from NVIDIA, having started with the GeForce GTX 1080 and GP104 in May, and adding another 3 cards and 2 GPUs since then. At least on the desktop side, this is the most aggressive launch schedule we’ve seen out of NVIDIA in nearly a decade.
On the mobile side however, things have moved at a different pace. In the most recent years, NVIDIA has launched at least parts of their mobile stack either directly alongside their desktop series launch (e.g. GTX 600M series), or shortly thereafter in the case of the GTX 900M series. So there has been a great deal of interest in when the mobile GTX 10-Series would launch, both due to overall booming gaming laptop market, and because laptops in general are the ultimate litmus test for power efficiency, and stand to gain the most from the move to FinFET transistors.
To that end, we finally have an answer to the mobile question. Skipping any pre-release fanfare like on the desktop side, NVIDIA and its partners are going straight to launch, hard launching the GeForce GTX 10-Series lineup for notebooks today. And while it’s been a bit longer of a wait than in past years, NVIDIA is launching a full 3-part stack at once, from GTX 1060 to GTX 1080, meaning the notebook video card is now fully caught-up with desktop lineup. There’s a lot to cover here, so let’s dive right in.
