In fact, if Tony gives Pepper a suit that will make her weaker because then she'll be a damsel in need of saving. (The fact that she's a sitting duck in need of saving whenever they get attacked by one of Tony's many enemies anyway is beside the point.) What she should do is wait until Tony saves her himself, in his own Iron Man suit, rather than having any means of getting herself out of trouble. By waiting to be saved by a man and running for her life in designer shoes, instead of saving herself with readily available technology, Pepper will stay true to her character (as Tony's shrieking secretary) and prove that she's a tough secretary CEO who doesn't need a man to be strong.

Do you buy that? I don't buy that. But then we're women. We just don't know our place.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
