This will be the first time a love interest has been upgraded from non-combatant to super-powered combatant in the third installment. So, new.

And your argument that it will be repetitive because so many people have armor would apply to the X-Men franchise as well, but that has not gotten redundant by too many characters having mutant powers.

An armored battlesuit is a very specific superpower. Being "mutant" is not specific at all, and just means you got your superpowers genetically. Doesn't mean everybody at Xavier's school has adamantium claws, or mastery over the weather. Not even remotely comparable to everyone wearing the spring collection of Tony Stark knockoffs.
