She has been in direct physical danger in both IM and IM2 while he has been busy elsewhere (struggling with no chest piece in IM1, fighting Vanko in IM2).
I hope I can protect the one thing I can't live without (as he gestures at Pepper)
How is it not the next logical progression for her character? OF COURSE he would make her a suit of armour. Really, he would be stupid not too.
Combine that with the fact that she does become Rescue in the comics and I just don't see what there is to complain about.
I understand the point about having too many people in armour, but really, we have had Iron Monger, War Machine and Whiplash, that's all. Not like the list is very long.
Yes, there are those three you listed, but 1. Look at the percentage. Two films, two villains that are a guy in bigger armor. Boring. 2. The drones are essentially the same thing, just controlled remotely rather than by a guy inside them. Just a device used to get MORE in the movie. And 3. Think about Tony's character progression. If his goal is always kill someone who's copying him, that's repetitive.
less armor, less drones, more creative threats. I'd be ok with her having an armor that saves her from the house, but her in armor, fighting, just like Tony AND Rhodey is boring and lazy.
