Default Re: Pepper Potts as Rescue

With the arc reactor in place, he built a functioning suit of armor for her to use.

Neither case is even remotely comparable to what happens to the MCU versions of Rhodey and Pepper. MCU Rhodey commandeered a suit without Tony's permission, and it remains to be seen in IM3 how Tony responds to that. And if MCU Pepper winds up getting the same damn arc reactor that Tony uses to keep her alive and an identical suit of armor --- in other words, she becomes "Iron Woman" --- audiences (both fanboy and general audiences alike) are going to bail on this franchise like rats off the Titanic.
That’s a gross over statement. People’s reaction to Pepper acquiring and wearing the Rescue suit will be dictated by how well the story elements around it are handled. If the story is deep then people will accept it but if its just a shallow armor reveal that’s just a plot device then people will right it off .

What is the most indestructable thing in the avengers? Ironman's suit, Captain America's Shield, or Thor's Hammer? The correct answer is Hulk's Pants
Loki: i have an armyTony Stark: we have a hulk!
