"Mr. Stane. Sir, we've explored what you've asked us and it seems as though there's a little hiccup. Actually, um..."
―William Ginter Riva[src]

William Ginter Riva is a scientist who works for Stark Industries and was ordered to try and recreate the Arc Reactor technology by Obadiah Stane only to quickly fail at the task.

Biography

Recreating the Arc Reactor

"TONY STARK WAS ABLE TO BUILD THIS IN A CAVE! WITH A BOX OF SCRAPS!"
"Well, I'm sorry. I'm not Tony Stark."
Obadiah Stane and William Ginter Riva[src]

William Ginter Riva was forced by Obadiah Stane to make a suit for him, similar to the ones that Tony Stark made in Afghanistan. Stane also attempted to get Riva to make a miniature version of the Arc Reactor, like Stark's. Riva confessed though that he was not of the same caliber of genius as Stark, because he could not reproduce his results.[1]
