Heroine Overview

I am trying to do the job that you were meant to do.
~ Pepper Potts to Tony Stark.
Tony, look at me. We're going to be okay. You can rest now.
~ Pepper's last words to Tony upon his death.

Virginia "Pepper" Potts, also known as Rescue, is a major character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She is the deuteragonist of the Iron Man trilogy, a supporting character in The Avengers, a major character in Avengers: Endgame, and a minor character in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Avengers: Infinity War. She is introduced as Iron Man's assistant, but they gradually become involved and eventually get married and have a daughter.

She is portrayed by Gwyneth Paltrow.

Personality

As one of Tony Stark's oldest and closest friends, Pepper Potts knows Stark better than most and has always been there for him, whether he knew it or needed it. Though outsiders would view her as a degrading assistant or lackey, Tony himself appreciates her dedication and how long she took out with him when compared to everyone else and trusted her enough to run Stark Industries but his own self-obsession irritates and occasionally drive her away due to forgetting her birthday and buying her strawberries as a gift, the one thing on earth that she is allergic to.

Despite knowing her place, Potts does not take disrespect to herself lightly. A sarcastic woman, when Christine Everhart condescends to her, she retains her decorum but snidely insinuates Everhart to be trash she needs to take out. With Stark, despite being her boss, Potts is not above a barbed remark for him such as buying herself a birthday gift with Tony's money when he forgot and keeping his arc reactor in a glass case, reading; "PROOF TONY STARK HAS A HEART". She seems to dislike violence in general, becoming deeply shocked over the explosion of the Hammer Drones at the Stark Expo and disgusted over violently killing Aldrich Killian with Extremis.

Even though Potts has proven to be a defining point for Stark's development and maturity, the relationship between the two of them is a definite struggle. At times, although he originally took up the mantle of Iron Man because the world needed it, Potts became to realize that Tony needed to be Iron Man more, causing strain as his tinkering and his suits were only a distraction to what really mattered in his life. His actions over anxiety of a world with gods and aliens were designed to protect the ones he love, which included her. However, this also pushed her away further. Ultron was designed to be the last line of defense for Earth against these threats so Stark being Iron Man would no longer be a necessity, but as his mistake created more problems and thus more reasons why he needed to be Iron Man, Potts could no longer be in a relationship with him and they decided to take a break.

Trivia

  • She is allergic to strawberries.
  • As seen in The Avengers, Pepper is good at "negotiating" with Tony by promising something that he enjoys very much in exchange for him helping others out in important matters.
  • Pepper's given age is never stated in any medium of the MCU, but given the birth of her daughter Morgan around 2019, its safe to say 1980s; making her at least a decade younger than her husband.
  • Rachel McAdams was the first choice for Pepper Potts in Iron Man, but she turned it down.
    • McAdams would go on to portray Christine Palmer in the MCU film, Doctor Strange.
