You need to watch the movie more carefully. Especially the scenes involving Killian.
The opening scene on New Year's Eve has nothing to do with pepper, Killian is after stark. He's there to see him he goes to the roof to show him his work
Yes he knows pepper and has a past with her that is established in her detest of him, but this through out the rest of the movie his motionvation is to get stark back on board with extremis
" a high position on the company has just opened up" not the extract quote but you get the idea
Pepper is a means to an end yes there are personal aspects that he has but they are not the main point to his plot, killian knows that if he has pepper he can use it as an ace on stark. If he gets pepper for himself then its a bonus
I have not insulted anyone or spoke down to anyone so please show me the same courtesy.
Anyway Killian is simply syndrome from the incredibles lol
