Um, how can you even compare the two? Tony's superpower is that he smart and rich and can build suits of armor. Could Supes or Spidey even build a "special suit"?

The Rescue armor came about because Pepper wound up getting the same kind of "heart problem" Tony had, which makes not only the *suit* derivative, but the backstory as well.
She was given an arc reacter in her chest as she was hurt by someone who came to kill tony and destroy what he cared about.

The suit of armor was designed to protect her in case this ever happened again. For some reason you think that would be "dumbass" and she should remain unprotected.
