Default Re: Pepper Potts as Rescue

I disagree. Even though Tony may not be physically present, you still seem to be arguing that she needs him to rescue her and that the suit is the means to do so. To me that seems like a damsel (by the way I'm not always going to add 'in distress' because that's implied).

What you suggest doesn't add anything to her character, rather it takes away. Pepper in the previous films has shown herself able to actively stand up for herself and take on the situation at hand in her own way without armour. What you're arguing for is to reduce her to someone who simply runs away and needs her hero to rescue her (indirectly or not).
