You misunderstand me. I don't object to corporate villains. I object to Stark being emphasized as a businessman when he should be an inventor who happens to own a business. And I object to Stark defending money rather than defending people. Stark's superpower should not be money. What Stark defends should not primarily be money.
I also like the idea of Pepper as a brilliant businesswoman. In my opinion, Pepper should be boring to the point of caricature. She should be so boring that it crosses the line twice into being funny. She should be the goddess of business graphs and business law. That way her and Stark make this team with great chemistry: Stark the wildly creative inventor with a Nutty Professor/Sherlock combo vibe to him, and Pepper the solid businesswoman trying to reign him in.
I have no problem with corporate villains. In fact, I think most of Stark's villains should be much richer than he is, and own far more corporate assets.
