Happy secretary's day!
Virginia "Pepper" Potts was a member of the secretarial pool at Stark Industries during the days when the company was run by Howard Stark. After the death of Howard, his son Anthony "Tony" Stark assumed control of the company, and quickly realized Pepper's value because she understood the day-to-day business of running the company better than he did. To Pepper's dismay, she found herself performing a great deal of Tony's work for him, as he was often out socializing. Pepper continued her studies in business administration in order to cover for her employer.
There's never been a figure of longtime supporting character Pepper Potts, because - let's face it - that would be insanely dull. A secretary toy? We'll just leave that to the Accoutrements folks. You can make your own, though, using the head from Hasbro's Sharon Carter & Iron Man two-pack, and the body from the 6" Sydney Bristow.
Is Pepper really a good secretary, or just a hostage-in-waiting? Tell us on our message board, the Loafing Lounge.
