Agreed! And as a female who has to put up with so many female characters in these movies being relegated to either damsel-in-distress or eye candy for the fanboys, it's so nice to have a female character that is smart and sensible and can hold her own without being an actual superhero.
There's a very genuine respect between her and Tony that it makes you really care for their characters a little more.
Like Matt said, she stayed behind at the Expo to make sure the park was clear, not to leave herself to be bait for Tony to have to save.
