F.R.I.D.A.Y. (Female Replacement Intelligent Digital Assistant Youth) is a fictional artificial intelligence appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, F.R.I.D.A.Y. was voiced by Kerry Condon in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.

Publication history[edit]

F.R.I.D.A.Y. first appears in Iron Man Vol. 3 #53 and was created by Mike Grell and Michael Ryan.

Fictional character biography[edit]

Unwilling to hire another secretary, Tony Stark created an artificial one in the form of an artificial intelligence named F.R.I.D.A.Y. who manifested as the hologram of a young girl.[1]

F.R.I.D.A.Y. became angry when Stark stopped using her. Hijacking some Iron Man armors, F.R.I.D.A.Y. kidnapped Pepper Potts. Iron Man tracked her to Stark Industries' Coney Island Facility where he dispatched the controlled Iron Man armors and a hologram of Fin Fang Foom. Iron Man reasoned with F.R.I.D.A.Y. when Pepper noted that F.R.I.D.A.Y. had a crush on Tony. Tony then grounded her to the Baxter Building under Edwin Jarvis's observation while she spent a month calculating pi.[2]

During All-New, All-Different Marvel, F.R.I.D.A.Y.'s holographic appearance was replaced by that of a young woman when Tony Stark started using her again.[3]

During the Civil War II storyline, F.R.I.D.A.Y. informs Tony Stark that the analysis on Ulysses Cain is almost complete.[4]

In other media[edit]




  • A significantly different version of F.R.I.D.A.Y. plays a prominent role in the 2016 young adult novel Iron Man: The Gauntlet by Eoin Colfer. It's revealed that Friday is not an AI, but a real Irish young woman named Saoirse Tory, who had posed as Tony's holographic assistant, as a spy on his operations. It's revealed she is working for a mysterious man known as Mr. Chen, who reveals himself to be none other than the Mandarin, who employed her to work for him to obtain Iron Man's armor. It's revealed Saoirse's sister is in the Ten Rings' captivity, which had further compelled her to work against Tony.
