Re: Pepper Potts as Rescue
Okay, redirect: maybe it's Maya Hansen in the armor in the LEGO set.
We know she's in the helicopter assault scene, yet she's noticeably absent from the LEGO set.
Maybe *she* dons the armor and tries to rescue Tony (or appears to try), only to get dragged down to her (apparent) death. I say "apparent," because if that's the play, I am almost positive that other scenes show her later in the movie. Meaning the "death" would be staged, for Tony's benefit.
