    Rescue 2020 1 (2020) by Dana Schwartz & Jacen Burrows

    Cover: Paco Medina
    Pepper Potts moved on from Tony Stark. She’s getting her life together, finding her place in the world.
    Unfortunately, that’s exactly when Tony Stark decides it’s time for a full-tilt, full-blown meltdown. And if Pepper can’t suit up and save the day, Tony is toast.

The only offshoot of Iron Man who has ever interested me was Ironheart, because she's also a super-genius inventor.

To me, there's something about an intellectually ordinary character in power-armor that just doesn't work. The result is someone who is no more or less powerful than the armor they are wearing.

If the situation requires super-genius intellect, they are screwed. If the situation doesn't require super-genius intellect, then the armor is doing all the work and would be just as effective as a drone.

So there's nothing heroic about an intellectually ordinary character in the armor, since they bring nothing to the table and are just along for the ride.

Iron Man is a super-genius whose armor keeps him alive long enough to use his brain to defeat foes orders of magnitude more powerful than the armor.

Ironheart is a super-genius whose armor keeps her alive long enough to use her brain to defeat foes orders of magnitude more powerful than the armor.

Rescue is a passenger who can defeat whatever foes her armor outpowers, and not one iota beyond that. If she faces a foe even one-percent more powerful than her armor, she dies.
