Avengers: Endgame‘s climatic battle sequence was quite possibly the most epic event in blockbuster movie history, chock-full of characters form all over the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise, breathtaking. However, there was one character who definitely stood out from the massive Marvel crowd: Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts, who finally got to suit up in her own Iron Man armor!
Fans of Marvel Comics know that Pepper Potts’ suit is known as the “Rescue Armor”. Thanks to some new Avengers: Endgame promo art, we’re getting our best look at the details of the Rescue armor, designed by Iron Man which you can check out, below!
As per Jerry Wilson, artist for the Marvel Legends toy line: “Rescue art for the just announced Marvel Legends figure. Official character art used.”
Marvel fans will be able to own this version of Rescue Armor
The good news is that Marvel fans will be able to own this version of the Rescue armor, as it will be launched q in the Marvel Legends line. However, with some brighter lighting, we subsequently get to comb over the details of this Rescue armor design.
About the Rescue Armor
The platting is pretty cool, especially the gauntlets, which have a stacked plating look that fits nicely with a sleek modern Iron (wo)man suit. The blue and white tiger striping is pretty awesome as well, and the blue eyes are a nice distinction from Tony Stark’s armors and War Machine’s red-eyed look. Seeing all three Iron Man family armors lighting up in the dark would’ve been beyond cool – but unfortunately it’s never going to happen now. The detail that fans are probably loving the most are the “wings” on the armor’s back, which gives Pepper Potts an angelic look as Rescue Iron Woman.
To be honest, Pepper showing up as Rescue on the battlefield was a big surprise moment for a lot of fans, as there was little to no precedent for the moment to occur. Sure, Pepper stepped up to fight at the end of Iron Man 3, but that was a temporary scene based on the Extremis in her body. Rescue was one of the only elements of Avengers: Endgame that wasn’t foreshadowed or built of clues in past films – but even as a random novelty, it was still really fascinating to see Gwyneth Paltrow get that moment, before leaving the MCU behind.
