That's what we have the Bethany Cabe character for(BW doesn't count since she's pretty much moved on from just being an Iron Man mythos character and pretty much come into her own mythos).
We ought to have Bethany Cabe in the Iron Man movies, and stick Pepper with Happy, as in the comics. I don't care if Bethany doesn't ultimately end up with Tony and Pepper divorces Happy, I just want to see Bethany feature in the movies. She should've been in IM2 since we had Justin Hammer, Rhodey, Whiplash, Monaco etc: most of the characters from the Demon in a bottle storyline.
