Character Relationship Analysis- Tony Stark and Pepper Potts - Part 1 of 3 My next analysis will be two popular characters from the movie.
The ending to Iron Man was the best ending I have ever seen in a superhero movie. I enjoyed it so much that I went and purchased the sequel.
Then, I watched Avengers. These movies were complete fun. I really enjoy seeing heroes defeat the villains. To my delight, all these movies have sequels in the works or planning stages.

When I was watching at one point very early on, I started to ask myself, "Should I stop the movie? This is not a superhero I want to see. Fortunately, he goes through a massive life-changing experience that lasts three months.
After this experience, Tony Stark regrets his past actions, appreciates more fully the people around him, and strives to undo all the damage he had done. Some of his ego remains evident in the second movie, but overall, he has definitely changed for the better.

It could have been mushy-gushy and instead we got a good feel for their changing relationship. Once she was clear, Stark recalled the Mark 42 off her but failed to save the house. Aldrich Killian reveals he has kidnapped Pepper and subjected her to Extremis, intending to infuse her with superhuman abilities and turn her against Stark as leverage to gain Stark's aid in fixing Extremis's flaws. Potts has survived the Extremis procedure.
However, before Stark can save her, a rig collapses around them and she falls feet to her apparent death.
When Killian survives an Iron Man suit exploding around him and attacks a defenseless Tony, Potts, who survived due to Extremis, saves Tony and takes on Killian herself.
