- "Good evening boss."
- ―F.R.I.D.A.Y. to Tony Stark after her activation.
F.R.I.D.A.Y. (stylized as FRIDAY), also known as the FRIDAY A.I., is an artificial intelligence unit designed and created by Tony Stark. She appeared in Avengers: Age of Ultron and was voiced by Kerry Condon.
Before the Battle of Sokovia, Friday was uploaded by Tony into the Mark 45's mainframe to assist him in the battle against Ultron. She is the first female A.I. to be created by Tony Stark so far.
The F.R.I.D.A.Y A.I was first installed into the Mark 45 in Avengers Tower. The suit schematic changed from red to blue showing that she had been uploaded successfully. During the battle, she gave Tony constant updates on the situation and ran the numbers to theorize his plan for a heat seal to destroy Novi Grad.
Captain America Civil War Edit
When an EMP bomb was detonated at the Joint Counter Terrorist Centre Building by Helmut Zemo, Tony contacted FRIDAY through a communicator and HUD (Heads Up Display) installed into his sunglasses to trace the EMP to its source.
During the Avengers' Civil War, FRIDAY continued her role in the Mark 46, informing Tony of the injuries he sustained from Wanda Maximoff's attack and warning him that Scott Lang had breached the suit before removing Ant-Man via fire retardant foam. When Rhodes was injured, she quickly contacted emergency medical personnel to assist him.
She later gave Stark an update that revealed Helmut Zemo was behind everything which prompted him to assist Barnes and Rogers. When the three engaged in battle, she continued to update Stark on the damage sustained by the armor during the fight. When it became clear that Stark could not beat Rogers in hand to hand combat, he had FRIDAY analyze the latter's fighting pattern for weaknesses. Once she did, Stark brought Rogers down in seconds but ultimately lost the fight due to a distraction by Barnes.
Later at the Compound, FRIDAY informed Tony that Ross was calling him.
FRIDAY's abilities seem to be an upgraded version of J.A.R.V.I.S'. She is fully capable of controlling Iron Man suits as well as assisting Tony in their operation and controlling whole vehicles, like her predecessor, but she displays new abilities as well. She is capable of monitoring the entire internet, able to easily hack into government databases, partially override the Raft's security systems and analyze fighting styles for weaknesses to exploit.
FRIDAY appeared in:
- Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
- Captain America: Civil War.
- Spider-Man: Homecoming.
- FRIDAY is a replacement for J.A.R.V.I.S due to JARVIS' matrix being integrated with the Vibranium infused artificial body also known as The Vision.
- FRIDAY is the first female A.I to be featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
- FRIDAY first appeared in Avengers: Age of Ultron as Tony Stark's replacement A.I for the Battle of Sokovia.
- FRIDAY is the film version of the comic character "Friday", an A.I hologram developed by Tony Stark to be his secretary. The name is derived from the antiquated American slang term "Girl Friday" referring to a female secretary or assistant. The term itself is a reference to the character "Friday" from the novel Robinson Crusoe.
- FRIDAY has an Irish accent contrasting JARVIS' English one.
- Compared to JARVIS, FRIDAY seems far more reserved when it comes to the other Avengers willing to talk only to, and take orders from, Tony. She also seems to care only for those who Tony trusts showing little to no emotion over the other Avengers being incarcerated or defeated. In Civil War, she had no concern for what fate would befall a miniaturized Scott Lang being ejected from the suit at high altitudes or that Tony might have killed Rogers and/or Barnes.
- FRIDAY's design is believed to be heavily inspired by the Italian comic W.I.T.C.H.'s character, Orube.
